Too hard on yourself- A conversation.

“So, why do you always say sorry?”

I don’t know, probably because I want to make sure that I don’t give other people the wrong impression.

“Well, the wrong impression of what?”

I feel uncomfortable stirring up conflict. I feel that I need to ascertain putting their feelings into consideration. Hopefully, by apologizing first, I avoid hurting others. .

“But you do realize that it has not been all your fault, right? You forgot the fact that they also have the responsibility to do their work, their job, and you don’t need to stress about things which are not within your control.”

I guess I do feel stressed out.

“You are too hard on yourself… you put too much pressure on what others think. In the end, you know what, they probably don’t care at all.”

May be I just need a short break from things and from all my internal drama.

“You need to take care of yourself first before you can efficiently take care of other people. Here’s a chocolate, you deserve to relax once in a while.”

Thank you. I needed that reminder and that chocolate as well 🙂
