Or, you know, you could just stop saying sorry.
"i have a problem i can’t control"
"stop having that problem omg"
Story times! :D
During my first year or so of high school, this was literally me. I was constantly appologizing for everything (no really, everything). Especially if I was intimidated by -or look up to- that someone.
Many people found this annoying, and would tell me quite bluntly to stop. I tried in earnest to, and when I found I couldn’t, I just stopped talking. I thought it was better to be nobody, to be nothing, than to be aggrivating to someone I admired.
At the time I didn’t realize that this was a form of anxiety, I thought I was just shy, or nervous. Sadly, my feelings were often hurt by the people I looked up to the most.
But there is some good that came of this. I learned how important kindness was. And patientce. I learned the best times to speak, and when silence could be more impactful than words.
And most of all, I learned that those who are not considerate of others, should not be considered at all.
