Why do we apologize for every little think that we do in life? Am I so much of a screw-up that I need to apologize for everything? Why do I care so much?
I honestly don’t care that much if I screw up, I care what you think of me when I do. Why do I care? The consequences. We all do things because of what outcome will happen after we speak or do something. What is our innermost thoughts about it? I don’t know, I am not a psychiatrist or a neurologist. I know that not always what I speak or do was fully thought out before it happened. I know, we are told from the beginning to think before we act. Honestly, I don’t believe that even works for me, it is somehow broken. I don’t know, maybe my many psychiatric ailments are the cause, or maybe I am just losing my mind completely. I am tired. Tired of apologizing in some ways. In other ways I am tired of hurting the people that I care about. I care about people quite a bit. I care very easily. I care about some people on Twitter and Facebook, I care about the people that read my blogs, I care about my daughter, and I care about my friends. I wish for a day that I can be myself and not hurt anyone and not say the wrong thing. I wish for a day I am not the person that I am built to be sometimes. Sometimes I wish people would care less about what other people do and say. See, I apologize for that too.
