Sorry but not sorry
Friday, December 29, 2017
How many times a day do you use the word "sorry". Are you aware how often you use the word "sorry"? If not, then I am asking you to start paying attention to your word choices.
- Sorry I am late.
- Now is not a convenient time for me. Sorry.
- I don’t want to go to the party. Sorry
- Sorry, would you help me with this?
- Sorry, will you get me a drink, please?
- Sorry, I took so long.
Notice how many times do you start or end a sentence with sorry. Are you "sorry" when you speak your mind, express your feelings or ask someone to do something for you?
The dictionary definition of the word “sorry” is to apologise for behaviours or actions that may have hurt another person. I vote to strike this word from your human vocabulary. I suggest we replace it with positive words that show gratitude, kindness, empathy and love. The best apology is changed behaviour.
When constantly apologising,
- You give your power away to others, you act like a slave and believe you have no power.
- It impacts your self-confidence.
- You shame and guilt yourself for acting or feeling a certain way.
- You shame and guilt yourself for being you.
- You use it as an excuse to avoid taking responsibility for bad behaviour.
Constantly, apologising reinforces the belief that you are here to please others. If you don’t, you need to apologise. The slave has to please its master. If the slave did something that displeased the master he/she better apologise or suffer the consequences or beg for mercy.
You are unconsciously acting out a past life contract/vow of slavery? In the the dictionary, a vow is described as a solemn promise or assertion with which a person binds himself or herself to an act, service or condition. An oath is a solemn appeal to God, to witness the truth of a statement or the sacredness of a promise.
If you would like to know more about sacred past life vows, oaths and promises you can contact me for a release session.Your language makes a BIG difference in how you experience the world you’re living in. What you believe about yourself and the experiences you attract and create with others.
Here are a few examples to help you shift the energy of disempowerment to empowerment. Stand in your own light unapologetically.
Sorry I am late. Sorry, I took so long.
Thank you for waiting for me, I appreciate your patience. (Gratitude)
Now is not a convenient time for me. Sorry.
Now is not a convenient time for me, but I would like to spend some time with you later. (Kindness)
I don’t want to go to the party. Sorry
I don’t want to go to the party. End of story do not apologies for how you feel. (Owning your truth unapologetically. Acting out of self love)
Sorry, would you help me with this?
I appreciate your helping me, thank you. (Gratitude)
Sorry, will you get me a drink, please?
Would you get me a drink? Thank you. (Gratitude)
Your words have power and energy, causing a ripple effect in your body and the world around you. Speak with kindness, gratitude and love.
