It seems one of the things we do right away when there’s been a fight or disagreement is to apologize and say sorry. Sometimes we say this so much it becomes a thing we do daily. When this happens it stops becoming sincere and the words don’t mean as much. Over-apologizing is something that we all need to work on and stop doing. There are things that we must take some responsibility for but even then, do we need to still say sorry for them? When you’re at the store and someone bumps into you’re the one who is apologizing and trying to get out of the way, when you shouldn’t even have to apologize. Chances are you were there first and they bumped into you by accident and you did nothing wrong. What are some of the things that you should not apologize for and when does it become too much?
10 Things that we should never apologize for

Once it’s done it’s over.
Having time by yourself
Some people do not understand why having time by themselves is important. Being along helps with being able to re-energize yourself.

Even if it’s not healthy then don’t apologize for it because in the end, it’s your body.
