A post to my Facebook page..
Do you feel compelled to apologise for things, you actually don’t need to apologise for?
I have done this all my life. All due to past abuse.
I have been spending less time on social media recently, which is good for me, and part of my self care.
I nearly apologised on Twitter just now, for my lack of tweets recently…
And I stopped myself and thought…
“Why am I apologising for something that is about my self care?
I am under no obligation to tweet a certain amount per day.
It is not my duty, or responsibility to have to be tweeting all day.
I’m not hurting anyone, or doing anything wrong.
And I don’t need to feel guilty about this either.”
Go me – on facing the issues of self care, guilt, over-responsibility to others.
I don’t need to apologise, when I haven’t done anything wrong.
It takes time to work on these issues. It’s not easy, but we do deserve to work on it.
