If you are one of those people who always apologize way too profusely and way too much, then we have something in common.
Even though it may seem that the world is increasingly becoming rude and self centered, there are quite a few people who still feel a need to apologize, even for things which are not under their control.
There might be quite a few reasons behind their politeness- they might fear being left out and so try extra hard to be appealing to their social circle.
Then there are those who are genuinely sensitive to others’ emotions and therefore are quick to apologize if they think they have been out of line, and some are plain polite.
However, whatever your reasons might be, there are certain scenarios where an apology is not warranted. Feeling sorry and apologizing when you have been in the wrong is a good thing, but it does not mean that you will let everyone walk over you.
Here are 20 times you should never apologize:
- Getting rid of toxic people from your life.
- Feeling the way you feel. Never apologize for being the individual that you are.
- Going after your gut feeling. Though instinct cannot be explained by logic yet it has been proved right so many times.
- Apologizing without feeling guilty is being false to both yourself and the grieved party.
- Never be sorry for taking out time for yourself no matter your responsibilities towards other.
- Having an opinion of your own. If somebody doesn’t appreciate or can’t respect your opinion it’s their problem, not yours.
- Supporting something that you truly believe in, even if it means going against your friends.
- Also, never be sorry for choosing to live your life in your way. You don’t have an obligation to anyone to follow the ‘norms’.
- Apologizing for feelings, of being hurt or betrayed, will just make it worse. Emotions are not in your control, how you react to them is.
- Apologizing for being sensitive too is wrong. As long as you don’t interfere with others, they can’t interfere with you for feeling how you do.
- Being protective of your kids or those who are dependent on you is nothing to be apologetic about. Until they can take care of themselves, you have to and you should do whatever it takes.
- There is no time limit to how much time you’ll take to get over a personal loss.
- Being honest.
- Speaking up for yourself. If you won’t then who will?
- Standing up for animals. Someone has to speak for those who can’t.
- Taking a timeout for yourself in a busy day.
- Questioning things and not accepting everything at face value. Being inquisitive is a great thing to do in this time and you should never let that go.
- Choosing things or people who you think would make your life better. It is your life. Nobody else can dictate or decide how you choose to spend your life.
- Apologizing for apologizing too much. Though it might seem counterintuitive, but if you do apologize a lot, you don’t have to be sorry for it. That’s who you are and those who love you would accept it.
