Two years ago I started this blog with a post about Confidence Week, which falls during the week of Thanksgiving and reminds us to be confident in who we are and how we feel. I haven’t had a chance to wear anything super ostentatious this week, but it has been an interesting week in terms of apologies.
Being confident doesn’t necessarily correlate to apologizing less. Rather it’s about expressing regret and empathy for violating someone else’s comfort zone while simultaneously maintaining your own. This is tricky to due genuinely, but in the end I think it makes the apology more sincere.
So this week, I’m trying to focus on addressing my own needs and the needs of others (where appropriate) simultaneously.
