Everything you say in this day in age is scrutinized and analyzed endlessly. It seems the more popular you become or more famous you may be, the more attention that is brought to you. You’re required to keep your guard up in fear of being called a racist, a homophobe, a GDI, or whatever it may be that applies to the specific situation. I understand this defensive strategy because no one wants tohave that weight on their shoulders, the pressure of being named something they really are not. This cautious approach to everything said though is taxing on an individual. It makes people more susceptible to being sorrowful and quicker to apologize.
Now don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with apologizing when you make a mistake, but what I have a problem with is when you say sorry just to say it. It’s important to only say sorry when you really actually mean it. If you overuse it, your apologies become irrelevant kind of like “The Boy Who Cried Wolf”. Don’t apologize for actions that you could not have personally prevented, because if you do that, then you’re apologizing on behalf of another individual. That’s all I’ve got for you guys this week, sorry 😉
