I discovered a comic a while back that has always stuck with me.
We tend to apologize a lot. For our feelings, interruptions, behaviors… honestly, everything in between. It almost starts the conversation at a low-place.
But many times, I realize a lot of people want to be there for you. They want to connect, to console, to commiserate when you are your low. So why not start from a place of ‘thanks’?
I’ve started to try this out too, and I definitely felt a small change. Gratefulness spreads light…for both people.
And for that, you have nothing to apologize for!
