Having the ability to apologize is a positive trait and often a necessary part of life. It reflects strong interpersonal skills and it is one of the essential parts of emotional intelligence. When you apologize, it releases you from that guilty feeling of having wronged someone, and it restores the sense of trust between you and the other person.
But, sometimes we apologize only because we care too much about what others think. As a result, people may view these excessive apologies as weakness or lack of confidence. Now, this isn't to knock the value of admiring our mistakes and making amends if we are wrong, but there is no need to say sorry when you have no reason to do so. Here are 7 things you don't have to apologize for:
1 Your appearance
2 Expressing your feelings instead of suppressing your emotions
3 Asking for help or clarification when you are overwhelmed
4 Being honest even when the opinion is negative
5 Other people's behavior as each one of us is responsible for our own actions and behaviours
6 Taking time to make decisions
7 We are all on a journey through life and we make mistakes as we go hence you should not apologize for your past.
