Sorry Not Sorry Campaign

Alright, so, I've been a bad blogger recently. As in "I haven't blogged in like three weeks" bad. But I think it's because I've been busy with work and haven't had the time nor energy to be inspired by much of anything…until I saw this…and decided to share it with all of you.
The first time I noticed how much I use "sorry" in my everyday life was when I was working at the capitol this summer. Someone walked into my crossed legs while they were walking, I'd say sorry. Someone opened the stairwell door just as I was opening it from the other side, I'd apologize. Someone cut me off while I was walking, and I'd apologize. I really didn't think much of it until it became the only word I'd use to speak to strangers throughout the day, which is quite sad, because really, why do I need to apologize for what other people are doing? Answer: I don't. 
I think this video, while still an ad for Pantene, hits on a really important issue that should be discussed, and I appreciate them finding it important enough to put it out there. I find it really quite brilliant. 
Anyhoo, I could get into a million explanations of why I think it's important to stop apologizing for everything that isn't even my fault (especially to men whose minds it never crosses to apologize - power to the females, yo), but I will instead let you watch this wonderfully amazing video and formulate your own opinions…and then comment them below, of course! 


So, what'd ya think?

P.S. - Here's a really great article about it if you'd like to read that as well!

  1. I am so, so guilty of doing this ALL THE TIME! It really annoys me about myself that I'm constantly apologising. I'm going to try and be more mindful of it in future- thank you for sharing! X

  2. Absolutely guilty of this... Thank you so much for the eye-opener, I will have to be more aware now in order to catch myself before I continue this bad habit!

  3. I use the work sorry in all those kinds of situations, but I don't actually mean that I am sorry, it just fits in the situation. I kind of use it in the same way as excuse me and pardon.
