“Would 'sorry' have made any difference? Does it ever? It's just a word. One word against a thousand actions.” Sarah Ockler

Do you ever notice how many times a day you say the words “I’m sorry,” almost as an automatic response?  And did you know that saying these words too often can actually have a negative impact on you and your life?

Of course there is nothing wrong with apologizing when you’ve messed up and when it is used legitimately to acknowledge a mistake, this can actually be very humbling and necessary.

However, if you say “I’m sorry” too much, it can also be seen as a sign of weakness or low self-esteem.  If you fear that you may be using these two words more than you should, discover how to stop over-apologizing!

Listen to yourself.  Are you saying “I’m sorry” because you made a genuine mistake and you truly feel regret?  Or is it because you feel intimidated or afraid that people would not like or accept you and your opinions?  Take a moment to reflect on the real reason why you’re using these two words. 


Change your vocabulary.  Many people (especially women) say “I’m sorry,” when in reality they want to say “Excuse me.”  If this sounds familiar, then starting today, make the conscious decision to say “Excuse me” instead of apologizing.  Soon you will see how replacing these two words can make you feel better about yourself.

 Ask the right questions.  We usually invalidate ourselves when we apologize for posing a question.  And that some of us do this to protect our egos, in fear that we will be judged for our lack of knowledge.    But we should not apologize if we are requesting help or clarification.

 “All you need to say is ‘Can you please help me understand that?’ or ‘Could you please explain that a bit further?’”  If someone judges you for asking, that could be a projection of his or her own insecurities.


Learn the right time to say sorry.  Save your apologies for when you have genuinely done something wrong, when you have hurt someone’s feelings or when you are offering your condolences.   Remember that it is not humanly possible to please everyone all the time.  Start by politely declining requests that you do not have time for or you do not want to do.

Turn your apologies into gratitude.  Instead of apologizing for not doing it yourself, express how grateful you are for their help; this will make them feel appreciated instead of making them feel that they have to reassure you.


Turning your apologies into gratitude can go a long way, especially since being in a state of gratitude opens the door to more abundance, success, love and wealth.
