My daughter posted this on Facebook and it moved me deeply. (Thanks for sharing, Bear!)
I have recently realized how often I apologize. I’ve become aware of it specifically in my lula transactions. If there’s confusion with a customer or another consultant, I begin my correspondence with ‘I’m sorry’ and have to stop myself.
Most of the time, there’s not even any reason for me to apologize!
I must do it more frequently in daily life but not notice it.
What a beautiful way to create a shift in yourself. In the world around you.
I am going to begin this expression of gratitude not negativity straight away! I’m going to alter my own way of thinking. My own way of being in this world.
I will stop apologizing when it isn’t necessary.
I will focus on my gratitude.
I will change my own world.
I love love love this!
Here in England we apologise all the time for things that aren’t our fault, it’s a way of life and a means of oiling the wheels of interpersonal interactions. But, I admire you for being determined not to go on apoligising for no good reason. In America, I don’t think many apologise and mean it, so perhaps you should only apologise if you have actually done something wrong.
Your daughter seems a very ‘together’ young lady.
Thank you for sharing.
