I Apologize a Lot

    I'm overly apologetic.

    I mean, it can't be helped. I've even apologized to inanimate objects before. I'm not the only one who's apologized to an inanimate object. A friend of mine as done the exact same thing. My friends tell me that I should stop being so apologetic, but it can't be helped. Whether...

    I do, waaaaaaaay to much.

    Even when I don't need to apologize, I do any ways. I dunno, I've always been that way... Maybe it's time to stop?

    I Find It Empowering

    I never aplogize for what I AM.  I know what I am, I like what I am, I am totally honest about what I am, and I devote my best energies to being what I am - I have absolutely no interest in being anyone else.  However, I am human, and I make mistakes, and sometimes my...

    Why Shouldn't I?

    When everything I do hurts those around me? I always apologize for the littlest things in hopes that they will make up for all the big things I've done. But who am I kidding? I'm not meant to be alive, I never have been. Maybe I should start apologizing for the fact that I'm...

    Hate That I Have This Tendency...

    For years now, people (especially me) have been frustrated by my tendency to apologize all the time - particularly if I happen to feel anxious or nervous etc.The greatest irony is that I'll even apologize for saying "sorry". That's incredibly infuriating...I mean I am confident...

    I'm Sorry...

    I apologize if anything I do affects anyone else in a negative way, no matter how small it may be. Just a little negative, and I'm apologizing all over myself. I also apologize for things I don't do, like if someone else is sick, I always say "I'm sorry".

    Sometimes, I'll apologize

    and someone will ask "Why are you sorry?" Truth is, sometimes I will genuinely feel wholeheartedly sorry, but once someone asks me why I'm sorry, I won't know the answer.

    Not For Who I Am

    but if someone tells me they had a ****** day, or something bad happened to them - it's just a reflex action for me to apologize. I never used to do it but after 7 years of marriage to a man that blamed every single thing on me, it's a hard habit to break.
