    Thanks for sharing this, I definitely agree that women say sorry too often!

    1. Absolutely! I think it is often a conditioned response. Thank you!

    On the flip side, someone once told me if someone does say I’m sorry for the right reasons, instead of saying “It’s okay”, say “I accept your apology.” That way they know they’ve been forgiven but also that it’s not okay to do it again.

    this was such a great roundup! I totally agree with not feeling sorry about asking for help. we by ourselves can’t do everything and it makes your life so much easier to ask for help

    1. I am surprised by how many people struggle with asking for help without apologizing. Thank you for reading!

    I totally agree! I know that I say sorry too much and we should never be sorry for some of these things. I’m trying to apologize for less by rephrasing things (like instead of “sorry for being late” saying instead “thank you for waiting” just an example), but it’s a hard habit to break!

    1. Oh I love that! That is a great reframe! Good job!

    This is such an awesome list LB that everyone should read! I’ve spent the past few weeks catching up on all of your posts and I love them! I can “hear” you as I read them and I just love (and need) your passion, enthusiasm and zest for life. I’m so glad that you are sharing your wisdom with the world! Happy New Year to you & Matt. xo
    ps. I remember you feeling the need to apologize for being “happy all the time” – so ridiculous! Keep spreading that joy & happiness 🙂

    1. Thank you my sweet friend! And thank you for taking the time to read them. I do remember apologizing for being happy a lot. Not anymore:) sending a giant sparkly hug your way!
