I’m forever apologising. I once did a tally and found I’d used the word “sorry” over thirty times in one day. That’s more than two apologies for every waking hour. That’s a lot of time spent feeling unsure and as though I am in the wrong.
My other half often responds with “you don’t have to be sorry for that!”. He’s usually surprised that I’m apologising and so he should be. Being sorry for being wrong is fine, saying it out loud to the relevant people is great but when you say sorry as much as I sometimes do , it’s almost like you’re apologising for your existence and that’s just ridiculous.
It’s a lot to do with confidence and feeling self-assured. I can swing from feeling like I can take on the world to worrying about everything I’ve said and done in an instant.
So, here I am, learning to be more confident and trust in my ability. Part of that is to stop apologising for everything I do and stand that little bit taller. x
