I’m sick of saying “I’m sorry!” so many times a day. Especially when I have no reason or need to be sorry. It’s just that humanity preys on the apologies and debasing of ourselves at the sake of others rudeness, arrogance, and selfishness.
How many times do you find yourself being sorry that someone else walked into you because they weren’t paying attention? Or that you’re sorry that someone interrupted you while you were already speaking? Or that you’re sorry that someone else’s expectations in life are not being met when they are not taking any proactive measures to change their situation?
Sometimes I feel like my sense of courtesy and respect is being abused. I find myself being sorry for everything that I have no control over, or that I have no right to be sorry for in the first place.
So…that’s it people. I am no longer sorry for you. You need to take responsibility for yourself. You need to learn courtesy and respect, too. But I am no longer sorry for paying attention, listening, speaking when it’s my turn, for having an opinion, or being responsible for my own life. Step up or get out of my way from now on!
