Stop saying sorry when there is no reason to apologize

Ever notice how many times you preface a statement, often one that is heartfelt and meaningful, with apologetic words like “I’m sorry,” “this sounds silly,” “I might be crazy,” or “you are going to think I’m stupid, but.” Whether you are trying to defuse a tense situation, deliver bad news or avoid being disliked, it can be easy to lead with an apologetic comment. However, engaging in apology-speak when it is not warranted diminishes the value of your ideas, accomplishments and, well, yourself.
