I’m not sorry.
Don’t be sorry, be clear.
How many times do you say, “I’m sorry” during the day? My girlfriend’s and I did a test this last weekend. Every time someone said “sorry” without real cause they had to drop and give us five push-ups. There were a couple of gals who were very sore and had major revelations about the how much they say it.
I had not been noticing when others say it, or when I say it without need. Funny enough, you don’t hear men apologizing for every little thing do you? Their threshold is higher for when they feel the need to say it. It was eye opening and forced us to become clear in our communications with each other.
“When we needlessly apologize, we end up making ourselves small and diminish what we’re trying to express” Maja Jovanovic
Here are some solutions to not saying your sorry and other realizations while hanging out with the ladies.
- Say ‘thank you’ for waiting or listening vs. sorry for being late or venting.
- Taking some much needed time for yourself. The realization that the world will not fall apart if you do, and if you don’t take care of yourself you cannot take care of others.
- Clear communication. Stating what you need when you need it.
- Spending time with your fellow sisterhood. We all need a little down time to laugh, cry, whatever. Make some time in your week/month for some sisterhood, with a glass of wine or juice. You’ll be thankful you did.
We need to own our accomplishments and not downgrade them, no justifications needed. I’m going to pass these tips on to you and now you must share these tips with other women who may need to hear this. Thank yourself for showing up for you.
Thank you for listening.
