I Apologize a Lot

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 285 People

    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'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".

    It's All My Fault!

    Yep, I'm taking responsiblity for everything wrong in the world. Having a bad day? Blame me. Flat tire? Yep, that's me. Yes, I made it rain on your parade. Tornadoes, floods, it's all me. So the next time you start getting frustrated with life, blame me. The war? That was George...

    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...

    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.

    I don't know why, but I apologize a lot.

    Even when something is in no way my fault. Someone could literally stab me & I would apologize for bleeding. I honestly don't know why I do this, & I'm just curious if anyone else does it too?

    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...
