Sorry #NotSorry – List of Things I’m Not Sorry For
I am notorious for apologizing. Well, at least for saying “I’m sorry” all of the time. Even if someone bumps into me at the grocery store I still feel the need to say it. We are living in a world where everyone is expected to apologize for just about everything we do. Well, I say enough is enough. Let’s just stop doing it. Here’s a list of things I do, and guess what? I’m NOT sorry!
– Wearing yoga pants AND leggings
And ya know what? I don’t even do yoga. Boom!
– Wearing makeup
If makeup makes you feel beautiful, wear it. If you don’t want to wear makeup, don’t. I personally enjoy wearing makeup and trying out new techniques.
– Letting my youngest sleep with me
She’s not going to be little forever and one day when she thinks she’s all grown up, at like 6, she will want to sleep in her own bed just like her friends.
– Refusing to play any Facebook games
I seriously could think of 2,890,453,453 other things I would rather be doing. Including cleaning out the cat box. Not going to happen so please stop sending me a request. The only thing I want to crush (and it’s not candy) is my last year’s stats.
– Feeding my kids a lot of pizza
It’s convenient, cheap and way better than some of the other crap I could choose. Plus it’s freaking amazing!
– Having no filter
The bad news is, you just might not like it. The good news is, you can trust it. And the best part is my girls don’t have a filter either. You’re welcome.
– Overeating sweets
Though the older I get the less I eat. At least that’s what I am shooting for anyway. Remember folks, skinny doesn’t always mean healthy.
– Playing on my phone
Man, do moms take too much flack for this. If you remember right we are juggling kids, homes, and jobs nonstop, and every once in a while we would really like some measly mind-numbing time to allow our eyes to glaze over and scroll through other people’s drama on Facebook. Get off our backs! Most of the time I am pinning for my blog, so it technically works anyway.
– Hurting your feelings
Look, I will never ever hurt your feelings on purpose. Sometimes these things happen. It took me a long time to learn the word no and to stand up for myself and by doing so, your feelings might get hurt. It’s apart of life and we all need to make sure we don’t lose ourselves trying to “not hurt feelings”. I had to learn the hard way.
– Over Mothering
I am what some call a “helicopter Mom” and I am not ashamed to say so. I love my kids with all of my soul and just like every parent that loves their kids, I want what’s best for them which can mean a lot of different things to everyone. I won’t judge you if you don’t judge me. Deal?
I am sure there are a ton more things that we all need to stop apologizing for. The moral of the story is to stop saying sorry for being you. Of course, there are times when we genuinely need to apologize so just don’t confuse the two. Say you’re sorry when you’re being a douche. Don’t say you’re sorry because you’re kids take Lunchables to school for lunch. With our powers combined, we will stop the overuse of the word “sorry”.
