The power of apology
There is a major disease that many women have and I call it “Apologitis.”
Do you have it?
It’s when you apologize all the time. You say something, and you apologize for not making sense. You apologize in advance as a disclaimer in case someone doesn’t resonate. You ask for what you want, and you apologize for being too direct.
It’s a defense mechanism to keep yourself from getting hurt.
It needs to stop. We need to stop apologizing for our existence as if what we say and who we are does not matter.
On the other hand, where the apology makes a difference and gives you tremendous power, we’re lacking.
We blame, we remain stubborn, we judge … why? Because we really judge ourselves, the root of apologitis.
This is the difference between a disempowering and an empowering apology.
In today’s Truth Telling Tuesday video, I talk about how to make a powerful apology that can create more love and affinity in your relationships:
I’d love to hear from you about your experience below. Do you have apologitis? And is there someone in your life who you feel disconnected from and a real apology would make the difference? Share your thoughts with us.
PS. Can you believe 2014 is almost at an end? Looking for accountability and support to make 2015 your best year yet? I highly recommend joining the Virtual Sistership Circle. The January circle will be Thursdays 8:30 – 10am PST starting Jan 8. The circle has limited space so if you have been thinking about, take the leap and grab your seat here.
PPS. If you want to get your questions answered and feel the energy of Sistership Circle before making a decision (skeptical if Virtual will work?), join us for the Virtual Circle Activation Gathering on Thursday Dec 18 here. Space is limited so only sign up if you are 100% committed to showing up on this call for the full hour.
