Have you ever caught yourself saying “I’m Sorry” to everyone you come in contact with, even that rude person who just bumped your bad hip with HER shopping cart? Is there a good hip you ask? She never even looked up at you, and actually practically mowed you down to get to that last ripe watermelon. When this sorry little voice pops out of you, unrecognizable, saying: sorry, sorry, oh so sorry, more than three times in one eight- hour period, chances are you have a problem. Definitely a sign to do an entire brain scan of what it is that bothers you. Ask yourself the question: What are you sorry for, and to whom do you really want to apologize. Hopefully, they are still alive. If not, sit down, apologize outloud, really mean it, and have yourself a good cry.
OR, Are you experiencing some lingering guilt that you’re transferring to the guy at the Post Office who cut in front of you on line? Or maybe it’s just as simple as needing EVERYONE’S love on a particular day, a day that you feel invisible, lonely, a day when you are walking through those echoing halls of childhood… and you think you hear your name, or laughter but there’s no one there but you.
So sorry, but I just had to share.
