Sorry... the negative effect of it's overuse

Sorry is such an overused word that can be damaging to you, your health & that of your family. Constantly apologising for our existence here on earth i.e. every time we say "Sorry..." must stop. We retrain our brains to stop negative speech yet we still find ourselves using words like ‘sorry’ frequently.

Over-apologising has a negative impact on how others perceive you & on how you feel about yourself. Don't get me wrong, there are times and places when 'Sorry' needs to be said but not daily or multiple times in a day for non-important things. I had back-to-back clients on Friday and completely forgot to open the security gate for one of my clients, that required a sorry for sure!

Below is a great example of how to replace the negative word with positivity:

We really do not have to live with the habits from our past, stop saying ‘Sorry’ unless you really need to because you did something wrong!!! We do not want the next generations growing up apologising 24/7 unnecessarily and in such a way that is damaging to their self- perception and how others view them.

This week’s challenge: replace “I am sorry” with “Thank you” plus keep a gratitude journal of minimum 5 things a day you are grateful for, further increasing your physical and mental health. It can see relationships be rebuilt, friendships grow and self-esteem flourish!

We are all wonderful souls and are hear for a reason so lets’ enjoy each moment, especially of the here and now.
