    Great link! I play doubles tennis. The ladies I play with are always apologizing for missing shots or hitting out or into the net. It drives me crazy. I am constantly telling them to stop apologizing, as we are not tennis pros and even pros miss their hits. We are human and make mistakes. Now after years of playing, as soon as the first apology comes out of my double partners mouth, I immediately put it to a stop and tell them we are both going to goof up, neither of us are perfect and we DON'T have to apologize for it. It's amazing how we can focus more on the game when the "sorry's" stop. :) Game, Set, Match!

    This is wonderful. I'm definitely guilty of apologizing for myself. I'm one of those people that says sorry when someone else bumps into me. I'm taking these to heart. It's very important to be aware of your wording. I'll be putting this approach into action. Thank YOU for sharing <3
