Isn’t it a strange thing that we’ve been conditioned to apologize for things we think may affect others even if it’s something important to us?
Consider for a moment the last time you apologized to someone — was it for something you did wrong or was it for something you felt obliged to apologize for, even though it wasn’t your fault?
I know in the past, I have apologized for things like:
- Not attending social events.
- Taking time to do things that were important to me.
- Not getting involved in other people’s personal issues.
