Oh, I'm sorry...

"Stop saying sorry!"

This little word, 'sorry,' is a bad habit for me. I say it all the the point that I may not even know what it means anymore.  I say it when I'm uncomfortable. When I'm afraid I've said something wrong. I even say it if someone bumps into me (even though it should be the other way around).

I'm not sure when I jumped on the 'sorry' train...but it's definitely something I'm aware of and need to stop. So...if you're around me...and I do it...sorry. (see! old habits...)

I don't know what to replace it w/ though. It seems to be a comfort to me...fills in an awkward moment...allows me to deal w/ a situation where I don't know what else to say. It also harkens to my intense need not to offend. Why do I always care if I offend, anyway?? (whole other subject...another day, perhaps)

I wonder how many of us have a crutch like that allows us to slip by...unnoticed.



  1. I say sorry to customers when we don't have a product in store...even if its one we wouldn't normally carry like hawkeye shot glasses.

    I agree its a habit that forms from not wanting to offend anybody but sometimes, no matter how many times you say sorry, they will still be offended.


    1. having to say sorry at the store is the worst! b/c deep're not sorry. boo.

  2. i'm right there with you...tough habit to break!

  3. I know what you mean! I used to be the person who would only say sorry when it was warranted. I had brass and then I because the sorry girl and I can't stand it. It has just recently almost cost me my job because my boss said I am too apologetic towards my staff and that I needed to stop or they would replace me! Talk about a wake up call! I hope you figure our your comfort zone and get off the sorry track :)

    Thanks for following me. I'm following back.
