Dave,

There's a quote that I particularly like: "Change your vocabulary and you change your attitude. Change your attitude and you change your life." anon

I have tried to live by the first statement and as I become more and more familiar with it, I find the second statement to be so very true.

I make an effort not to apologize to anyone!

For me, it all depends on the mood I am in. I either say, I am sorry, say nothing or say F...k you.

Of course, then I feel guilty and beat myself up for saying the wrong thing.

Holy shit. You just made me reread my own Survivor Story.... and there are too many times that I see where I either apologize or ask for forgiveness from the readers. It just came as a natural reaction, and I just felt I had to, because I didn't want to put anyone through my shit. Read my story and you'll see what I mean.

In other ways, though, I may not say it, but I frequently feel it. And that's in contrast to the arrogant son of a bitch I used to be. I've been humbled quite a bit.

It's not "I'm sorry" for me it's "Excuse me". I'm always saying "Excuse me" I have no idea why, anywhere I go anything I do I always feel like I have to say it whenever I want to go somewhere or do anything it's always like I'm in someone's way or someone is in my way or whatever it is and I feel guilty for saying it a lot like I'm some kind of jerkoff or something

More and more I'm realizing my whole existence is an apology for existing. I hate it. I'm sick of it.



No More!!

I'll keep saying it until I'm forgiven. Of course, that forgiveness is only mine to give, even if I keep wanting it from someone else.

Wow, what an interesting question. After thinking about it I realized I say it all the time! I think it kind of looses its meaning when it is your default response to things. Now, when I say 'I'm sorry' I don't know if i am saying it because I mean it, or because it is a knee-jerk response.
