You may have caught Rashana A. Hooks brutally honest article, Things You Should Never Apologize For. Still, I suspect that many of you still have your bags packed and ready to go for your daily guilt trip and are undeservingly beating yourselves up for all the things that make you fierce and fabulous. Apologies are used for the recognition and remorse of a wrongdoing, but more often than not, you’re only living your life the best way you know how, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Here are 10 more things that you can save your apologies for:
1. Being educated/Conscious of grammar.
I’ve noticed how easily offended people become when I correct them on a fact that they’ve quoted incorrectly or point out that they’ve used the wrong “you’re” in a Facebook status update. Instantly, I’m attacked with loaded gratitude like, “Thank you, grammar police.” In my opinion, friends don’t let friends stay confident in ignorance. You can be helpful without being insulting. While there’s certainly a time and place to be more laid back and relaxed with your language, you’ll be thanking me and my thesaurus before you print out a thousand business cards labeled, “Thank you for you’re business.” (Microsoft Word weeps.)
