Stopping Apologies

This image is a #ThrowbackThursday from last year. There was a campaign for International Women’s Day, #DearMe, located at youtubedearme.com. The site seems to no longer be live, but I appreciated the sentiment behind it.

I apologize entirely too much for everything. Someone can walk into me and I’ll say sorry. I analyze every word or moment of silence, every thought or action. I take informal polls of strangers to see if I’m the only one who can possibly think this way, or act that way. I feel immense guilt for my introversion. I feel little compassion when being an ethical vegan is about compassion.

Never apologize for who “you” is, I said last year in March. Do as I say, not as I do, it appears.

Here’s to stopping the apologies.
