There is a lot of apologizing. The true significance of the two short words “I’m sorry” has been lost as people now take them for granted. People feel they do more “bad” things than others and feel obligated to apologize for them. It’s time to take back “sorry” and save it for the occasions when it’s actually needed if you’ve realized that this applies to your life.
- Sometimes we apologise for circumstances that are out of our control, like terrible weather occurring while we are having a party.
- Sometimes we make excuses when someone else was at fault, such when a waiter serves us food that wasn’t prepared according to our preferences.
- And occasionally, we create excuses for decisions in life that we have every right to make, such as ending a relationship or changing employment.
We apologize frequently because we care too much about what other people will think of us or because we prioritize their demands over our own. There are several instances in which an apology is not required.
25 Things You Should Never Apologize For
You don’t have to apologize to someone unless you’ve done something terribly terrible. Here are 25 offenses for which you should never offer an apology, even if you feel you should.
1. For saying “NO”
A self-respecting person respects their own limitations. Never feel bad about saying no if you are unable to give something your all. Saying no is a quality of a strong personality.
It might be challenging to say no, especially if you’re accustomed to being understanding or helpful. You shouldn’t feel as though you need to continuously apologize for saying “nope” if something is simply not doable.
2. For sitting down
You’re so worn out. Seat yourself. It’s not an indication that you’re “weak” to desire to relax rather than push through discomfort or tiredness because life is difficult. This is self-care.
3. For loving someone
Honor the ability to love that you possess. There are a lot of individuals in the world who are too afraid to even try love. It makes no difference who you love or if they return your love. What matters is that you are capable of loving.
