It’s Hard for Me to Say I’m Sorry

JL says she used to have an anaphylactic reaction to saying, “I’m sorry.”


I have always been quick to say, “I’m sorry.” Yet, I realized that there were times that, though I apologized, I was super angry a short time later. After some self-reflection, I realized that I often apologized quickly, because apologizing was typically the fast way to remove any tension. Here’s what I realized. if my apology didn’t remove the tension, I got very angry. I wasn’t apologizing to make things right, I apologized to make things calm.


Now, my apologies are slower, but they are genuine. In the meantime, JL has grown much quicker saying she’s sorry. Sometime with a Bitmoji.
