I Apologize Too Much

I really do. I'm sorry. 293 People

    -sigh- Yep... And I'm Sorry For That, Too

     I apologize all the time to my fiance, even when I really don't see how I even played a part in the wrong that was done. I especially apologize about what I cannot control, such as my chronic worrying, which stems from a mental illness...

    Random Apology Story?

    I guess I'm really used to apologizing... I was over at my friends house, and all of a sudden out of nowhere I banged my head on her window. Nothing happened to the window, but I turned around to it and shouted "I'm sorry!" My friend looked at me like I was crazy.

    Guilty, Guilty - Guilty

    I am definitely guilty of apologizing too much, even when I have done nothing wrong. That may be a lingering side effect of an ex g/f for whom I was always the center of her problems or it may be that I am just used to being the problem. I'm trying to correct this habit or at...

    And people tell me to stop apologizing

    and then I say I'm sorry anyway and they get mad at me so maybe I shouldn't talk any more

    I was mountain biking on a school trip before

    and I hadn't been on a bike for 2 years, so I was really bad at it. Luckily it was with one of my favourite teachers and 3 of my friends because most people didn't want to go (luckily for me, the other people in that class are really mean!). I was being really slow and just...

    It Actually Gets On My Man's Nerves.

    I don't mean to do it. I was just use to being the one to apologize even if I wasn't the one in the wrong. My mother would make me do it to save the peace. I couldn't understand why I had to say I'm sorry to my brother whenever he hit me but whatever. She had ome bad mother...

    Hurry Up Before It's Too Late

      Too often we don't realize What we have until it is gone Too often we wait too late to say "I'm sorry - I was wrong."   Sometimes it seems we hurt the ones We hold dearest to our hearts And we allow foolish things  To tear our lives apart.   Far too many times...

    Hardly At All Is Too Much

    The fact is, people should be apologizing to me for trying to pressure me into apologizing when apologies are not due. If I make an honest mistake, or even lose my cool when I'm in the right, people often expect an apology, when a simple acknowledgment that I should have handled...

    Way Too Much.

    When I went away to rehab for eating disorders and drugs I learned how to not be sorry for everything that happened and things that were out of my control.  Because I said sorry so much while in rehab, the other people that were in rehab with me put a sign around my neck...

    Stop Saying Sorry! Okay, Sorry. Sorry!

    I was forced to apologize for everything as a kid. For my brother's mistakes, for things I didn't do. For crying. Everything. As a result, I apologize too much. My best friend constantly gets on my case about it, haha.
