Why do we feel it's so necessary to apologize for so many things in life? I mean, sure, there are plenty of things that you should apologize for if and when you do them, but there's a long list of things we should all stop saying "sorry" for, starting right. NOW.
1. Not Being Interested
You don't owe anyone your time or attention. Don't apologize for not being interested.
2. Your Sexual Orientation
Only minus the "sorry" part. Again, you don't owe anyone an explanation or an apology about your sexual orientation.
3. Your Libido
Don't apologize for wanting sex, or not wanting sex, all the time, or none of the time. Ignore the slut-shamers and the haters who'll call you a prude. It's none of their damn business.
4. Not Wanting Kids
Not every woman wants to be a mother, and there's nothing wrong with that.
5. Your Work/family Balance
When was the last time someone gave a dad a hard time about choosing to work outside the home, while at the same time, if he'd chosen to stay home, they'd belittle him for making THAT choice? Do what's best for you and your family and don't apologize for it.
6. Who You Love
As long as your sig other respects you and treats you well, don't apologize for who you love.
7. Pampering Yourself
You need to take care of yourself in order to be able to handle the million things you're responsible for, so never say sorry for taking a little time for yoga... or other pampering and you-time.
8. Your Makeup
Whyyy do people - men in particular - think they have any say in how much makeup we wear, if we wear it at all? No. Wear makeup if you want, or don't wear makeup, but never feel you have to apologize for it either way.
9. What You're Wearing
If you like it, and it's comfortable, AND YOU LIKE IT, then who cares what you're wearing? Don't take any gaff from anyone about your personal style.
10. Ditching the Fremenies
Oh, you had the nerve to drop a frenemy, and now someone's trying to guilt you for standing up for yourself? Nope. Don't apologize.
11. Not Being Married
If you and your sig other are perfectly happy in your relationship without a wedding, that's fine! Don't apologize for NOT spending thousands of dollars on a wedding if it's just not your thing.
12. Cursing like a Sailor
Sometimes the exact right word in a given situation is a curse word. Use them freely, if you wish, and don't apologize for it. I mean, you know, don't shock your poor maiden aunt, but don't apologize for using them otherwise.
13. Your "guilty" Pleasures
Whatever you enjoy doing (or watching) in your downtime, don't apologize for it, and if anyone tries to make you feel bad for being-watching Keeping up with the Kardashians, unfriend them, because you don't need that kind of negativity in your life.
14. Having Emotions
Look, you're a human. You have emotions. So never feel like you have to apologize for showing them... like, say, for weeping during those animal shelter commercials, okay?
15. Bottle Feeding
Not everyone can, or wants to, breast feed. You tried it. For whatever reason, it didn't work. You don't owe anyone an explanation or apology.
16. Changing Your Mind
There's nothing wrong with changing your viewpoint or your mind over time. Don't let anyone make you feel guilty for ditching a hobby, an outfit, or anything else.
17. Loving Social Media
There's nothing wrong with loving Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and so on. I mean, shame on you for wanting to stay in touch with friends and family, right?
If one more person tells me to smile, so help me... I'm not angry or sad or bored... I just have Resting Bitch Face, and I'm not sorry for it (and you shouldn't be either).
