Thank you instead of I’m sorry

In general, our society apologizes too much. I think we apologize for the fear of pissing people off.

This past week, I was in Colorado. My first time out of state since I was discharged from the hospital. I went to Colorado to see two of my close friends. Throughout my trip, I found myself apologizing too much. I realized that I was apologizing for no reason. I asked myself why I apologize so much.

I was apologizing when people would go out of their way for me. Then I thought, “maybe shouldn’t say sorry when I really mean thank you.”

Do you apologize too much? Try saying thank you before I’m sorry. It is life changing.
