Start paying attention to how many times a day you say “sorry” and why you say it. The words “i’m sorry” can go a long way; they can transform relationships in incredibly meaningful ways, so why is it that we diminish them by apologizing for things we shouldn’t.
Let’s stop apologizing for these five things:
- Pausing and taking a break
Humans aren’t wired to run 24/7; you shouldn’t feel guilty for needing to own your time and rest!
- Setting Boundaries For Yourself
If you always say yes to things that leave you feeling drained, you need to start setting boundaries for yourself. It can be hard to say no, but if you crave free time, time to yourself, you need to stop apologizing for saying no and setting boundaries for yourself.
- Crying or Showing Emotions
No one ever expects you to be happy 24/7; it’s okay to be upset or frustrated. Moreover, it’s okay to show that.
- What We Wear
When we think we don’t fit in, we apologize for how we dress.The truth is that everybody is so worried about how they look that no one is worrying about what you’re wearing. You can stop apologizing for how you dress.
- Changing Your Mind
Life is constantly changing around us; this means our plans, ideas, and decisions can also change. Don’t feel guilty for changing your mind.
Remember, as long as you are kind and loving to yourself and others you don’t owe an apology to anyone. You deserve to live in peace and comfort without feeling the need to apologize.
