STOP.RIGHT.THERE. Yeah, YOU! How many times do you say sorry in a day? Do you say it when when you cut people off in traffic? Or when you accidentally bump into someone? How about when you ask a question at work and they scold you for asking in the first place? When you state your opinion that others may not favor?
It’s time to figure out what is worth saying ‘sorry’ for and what needs to be exiled for good!
I am this person. I am a people-pleaser, don’t want to step on anyone’s toes or annoy anyone so I use ‘sorry’ as my way to stay on people’s good side… what a joke! If you are like me, this blog is for you!
Stop saying sorry because it makes you a target.
Stop saying sorry because you are NOT weak.
Stop saying sorry because MOST people don’t say sorry (even when it is their fault).
Stop saying sorry because you don’t owe anyone anything.
Stop saying sorry because it’s a waste of energy and time.
Here are my tips to help you replace ‘sorry’ :
Think before you say it, did you really do anything wrong?
Turn ‘sorry’ into ‘thank you’
Show compassion in different ways
Provide a solution instead of apologies
You are strong. You are worth it. And you don’t need to apologize for a damn thing!
