Sorry, I’m not sorry

I’ve been told that I apologize way too much for things that don’t need to be apologized for.

Example:

“I’m sorry I was early to work ”

“I’m sorry I bought beer for the entire office. I hope that’s okay.”

I think it stems from working in the restaurant industry. I was constantly trying to make someone happy and pleased so I apologized even though everything could be perfectly fine.

Recently, I’ve been in a situation where I was definitely apologizing for things I know I should not have been apologetic for.

To reverse this, I will not apologize for several things that I was made to feel like I should.

So what am I not sorry for?

I’m not sorry if I want/need something I go out and get it for myself. I don’t wait for it to magically land on my door step or for someone else to get for me.

I’m not sorry that I have a brand new car in my drive-way. It’s represents how hard I’ve worked to make my life better.

I’m not sorry that I know when to swallow my pride.

I’m not sorry that I have a job that I absolutely love.

I’m not sorry that I will do everything in my power to make situations better, and not just wish for it to happen.

I’m not sorry that I do know how to balance work and play. And sometimes, work trumps play.

I’m not sorry that I take responsibility for my actions. I don’t attempt to rationalize why it’s okay to hurt others or cut corners.

I’m not sorry that I want to see the good in people, but it doesn’t mean that it’s okay for them to take advantage of my kindness.

I’m not sorry for having a big beautiful heart that deserves to be respected.
