I’m Sorry… Not Sorry!

Gratitude Practice with Yoga

A blessed #ThinkingThursday to you kind soul 🙏
How often do you find yourself saying “I’m sorry”?
Expressing sincere regrets for breaching boundaries, or being inconsiderate isn’t what I’m meaning here, it’s more the ‘overly’ apologetic in mind ❤️‍🩹
I recall in my youth I would apologize so very much. It really caught my attention when I accidentally kicked a chair and said “I’m sorry” 😝
What’s going on here??
Canadians stereotypically say “I’m sorry, (eh)?”, and for a while I reflected on this 🤔
Then someone mentioned that overly apologizing is a trauma response, a symptom of emotional abuse 💔
By saying ‘I’m sorry’, I meant, don’t be mad at me. Don’t stop loving me. Don’t reject me.
Sound familiar?
I’m shifting my language…
When I’m late, it’s “Thank you for your patience”
When I need to pass someone and it’s close, it’s “Pardon me please, excuse me”
These two shifts have transitioned most of my sorry’s!
This insight and behaviour change has served to empower me, it’s freeing 🌟
I’ve been #LovingMyVibe, healing emotional & psychic wounds 💝
My apologies are reserved for genuine connections, when I’m sensing guilt and remorse, or someone expresses I’ve hurt them 🙏
NOT from my shame that I need to apologize for existing 🫠
How does this resonate today?
Your feedback & questions are always welcome & appreciated 💖
May this insight serve you in taking some power back 🌟
Wishing you many blessings of love, peace & grace ☮️
