    I Want to Quit.

    I really don't realize how much I say it until someone gets angry about it, and then I end up apologizing for it too.  It's just a habit.

    I'm the Bigger Person Here

    It's my fault more than it is yours. Whenever, however an argument starts, I'm the one who is always saying, "I'm sorry." To keep confusion down and in an attempt to compromise, I say it to get you off my back. I say it to appear to be the bigger person. I say it...

    Seems It's My New Favorite Sentence

    I'm Sorry. Sorry. So sorry. It's all I say as of recent. I wish it wasn't all I could say at times. But when it comes to it, I feel like I need to apologize, because I feel like I've always done something wrong, or something that calls for apology. I'm always doing...

    Pretty Much...

    I have a tendency to say sorry, even thugh I dont need to be or I dont have anything to be sorry abut. I've used the word so much as a diffuser, I've barely realized it makes me look weak.

    If you break a plate

    and say sorry to it, does it fix itself? No. It doesn't. That's the truth about "sorry". It doesn't solve anything.

    I've been sorry for everything all of my life . Sorry you feel bad because you hurt me. Sorry it's raining outside. Sorry I can't fix your problems.  I have pain from things I have done and can't take back, but I have paid my dues. Now the only thing I'm sorry for is being sorry...

    Old Joke

    AS a joke, my friend once gave me a comic ***** that she said reminded her of me.  It was a girl writing in her diary, saying "Dear Diary, I am sorry to bother you again..." That about sums me up!

    Bad Habit For Me....

    This has always been a bad habit for me since I can remember. People always and sometimes still do make me feel bad for things that I do, so I always feel like I have to apologize to them for it. I don't know why, but I always feel guilty for anything that I do. I just don't...
