I say im sorry a lot. I carry a lot of guilt. It’s something engrained in me. I will have random thoughts of stupid things I’ve said or done play through my head. I don’t need to apologize for everything. I don’t need a life of constant dislike of my choices. Boundaries are good things and putting yourself first doesn’t hurt no one sometimes.

4 thoughts on “Apologies

  1. I have done so many stupid things in my life that there are times people remind me of things I’ve totally forgot about and it’s like, “Whoa, that’s way above average stupid, how did I forget that?” We can either continue to wallow in our shame, learn to make a ton of money off of it like Brene Brown, or simply put in the past and say, “Hope I don’t make that mistake again.” These days, sorry is reserved for when I let myself down, not when I don’t deliver on someone else’s expectations.

  2. My Partner keeps wanting me write a post about over apologizing and seeking out consensus as an ingrained response. I know what I want my title to be – “I came. I saw. I concurred!”- but basically nothing else. I never realize I do that even with him and others, so no clue what to write about it. But, he would agree you don’t need to!
