Do You OVER Apologize?!?

Why Do I Always Feel The Need To Apologize So Much?

I Mean, I Do It A Lot.

Like, A Lot A Lot.

I Apologize For Things I Do.

I Apologize For Things I Say.

I Apologize For Things I Did Long Ago.

I Apologize For Things I Said Long Ago.

Apologize. Apologize. Apologize.

I Apologize For Things People Have Done To Themselves.

I Apologize For Things That Others Have Done To Others.

Is It Because I’m Sorry?

Or, Is It Just A Reflex Action?

Do I Do It Because I Really Care?

Or, Do I Do It So I’ll Appear To Care?

OR, Do I Do It Because I Care AND Want To Appear To Care?

Honestly…

…I Don’t Know.

At Least, Not Always.

I Think I’m Just Scared Of NOT Appearing That I’m Sorry, Whether I’m Really Sorry Or Not.

But Sometimes, I’m Dreadfully Sorry And Find It Difficult To Keep From Apologizing.

I Do It Once.

I Do It Twice.

Oops, There Goes A Third Time.

All Of A Sudden, The Person I’m Apologizing To Is Pissed About My String Of Apologies.

Now I’ve Got Someone Upset With Me Because I Was Simply Tooooo Sorry.

Dammit.

I’m Sorry.

😐

  1. This adds a whole new dimension to your previous post, which was a dramatic, eloquent apology.

    You apologize (even for others’ actions) because you are a caring human being. πŸ˜€

  2. Great post Bradley. You do it because you over think. You don’t want others to think that you aren’t remorseful. But you are. Then doubt sets in because you don’t think you are remorseful enough. What you need to remember is once you say you’re sorry it’s done. It’s over and you have to move on. It’s like asking God or Jesus for forgiveness for a sin, over and over. Once it’s forgiven, it’s forgotten. It’s time to move on. You have a good heart, but a brain that works over time. Slow the mind and the heart will slow. And you will realize that apologizing once is enough. Take care my sweet.

  3. I’m quick to apologize to someone. I have no problem with saying, “I’m sorry.” I hope the person accepts it and we can move forward. With me, though, I usually don’t realize I’ve hurt somones feelings until we speak again and I notice their body language. I rack my brain until I come up with what I said and then I try to make it better. It can be exhausting at times, but If I really like the person – it’s worth making ammends.
