Hello, friends, there’s a ban on Sorry in our house. Not to be confused with Elton John’s song, “Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word”. But a ban on me saying sorry, all the time.
For over 20 years my hubby has been telling me to stop saying sorry for everything. I said sorry for saying the word sorry to my hubby yesterday. In which he responded, “you’re not saying that word anymore right? My reply…oops, sor__, I almost said it again!
I say sorry for things that I don’t need to apologize for all the time. I also say “sorry” when I miss something someone said and need something repeated. I’ve tried. saying “pardon me”, or “excuse me”. But, I’m sorry I can’t seem to change that. Yes, there it is right in my explanation, “I’m sorry but I can’t stop saying sorry” when I need something repeated…ugh. Hubby has agreed to let that one slide (wink).
I even say, sorry to our sweet Izzy (the official blog dog, our eight-year-old fur baby). Yes, I’ve said, “sorry Izzy I need to step over you”, “sorry Izzy you can’t go with us this time”, “sorry Izzy I don’t have a treat in my pocket right now” (yes if I’m wearing something with a pocket there’s a treat in there).
So now with the ban on the word sorry, I’m trying to pay more attention to the things I’m saying sorry for. I don’t think I can completely stop saying sorry for things I don’t need to apologize for, but I’m trying.
Can you relate to this? Are you a serial apologizer? I know it isn’t just me who is saying sorry all the time.
A Lot of women seem to say sorry a lot.
Why are we always saying sorry? Is it in our genetic makeup to say sorry for everything?
Could you have a ban on sorry in your home?
I hope everyone is happy and healthy. Stay safe, stay home ( if you can), stay 6 feet apart and I’ll see you back here on Thursday for TFT ( Thursday Favorite Things blog hop link party for blog writers and blog readers) .
