I Apologise For No Reason a Lot

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 170 People

    I Used To, Anyway...

    i used to say "i'm sorry" for everything. i even apologized when someone else had hurt me. i don't know how i stopped that habit, but i'm glad i did. i think the phrase "i'm sorry" is very over-used, at least for my experiences, and i tell people that i'll let...

    Guilt For Nothing.

    I always find myself apologising for every little thing. it's worse when i've had a drink or two,and lately when I saw my friend from work. He had to tell me off last night for apologising for laughing at him (I'm painfully shy and get nervous quite easily) but I'm quite hard on...

    Aren't Puppies Great

    Yes they make messes and chew up everything inside and outside the house.  They are quite the little terrors.  I had two foster dogs, Bonnie and Clyde, who figured out how to open the back gate and chewed the brick on the house.  Clyde discovered how to climb the...

    I'm Sorry

    I'm sorry I'm pretty damn useless most of the time. I'm sorry I can't grasp simple everyday things like, using the washing machine or calculating money and Finances. I'm sorry my job means I work mainly nights, and that you work mornings. I'm sorry you feel like I'm pushing you...

    Why Do I Feel So Much Guilt?

    This Experience Group really resonated with me, because I am someone who apologizes all the time, more than is needed. What a difficult habit to break! I immediately assume that I have some "blame" in any given issue, and try to heap the responsibility on me. How can I be more...

    Even When Its Not My Fault.

    I find myself apologising in situations where I myself expect an apology. Does anyone ever do that? It's the emotion I feel aftewards that really gets me thinking. Its like I sold myself out, because I didn't stand up and wait for an apology or I didnt stand strong for long...

    I don't believe that everything happens for a reason. I believe in chance. Things happen from a cause, and that cause was made by chance.
