Why Is It Hard To Say “Sorry”?

Welcome to the video series that’s all about climbing the ladder of vibration and manifesting the life of your dreams. I’m Stephanie Mulac, and today, we are talking about owning it.

Now, what do I mean by owning it? Well, let’s start out with this: “I’m sorry. You’re right, I apologize. I could’ve done that better. I could’ve improved something. Please, accept my apology.”

Now, how easy is that for you to say to people when you’re in the middle of a scenario where there is something that you actually did wrong or something that didn’t go as planned? For you to actually own your actions and to be able to reach out to somebody and express your sincere apology, for something that you had control over or maybe you didn’t have control over, but you tried to make a difference with.

Now, this is very difficult, because our society has ingrained in us that being less than is a bad thing. That we are supposed to be perfect, that we are not supposed to have any inadequacies in anything that we do in life, or that makes us somehow less than. And there’s something wrong with all of the effort that we’re putting in, if we’re not perfect every single, solitary time. And there really can be nothing further from the truth. Because as we all know, those little blips, those little scenarios and stumbling blocks make us a better person.

But too frequently, we have been made to feel like saying “I’m sorry” is somehow admitting defeat, and it’s not defeat. It’s being the bigger person and owning a scenario or a circumstance that might be less than something that you desire as an outcome, but you are a big enough person to square your shoulders, and to be able to own it and take responsibility for something that happened that did not go as planned.

And when you do this, when you own up to that and take that opportunity, you will see the benefits, and the positive outcomes, and the reactions that you have from the people around you, that their defenses will lower. Everybody will not be jockeying and pointing fingers, and you know, trying to get out from underneath this perfection scenario that has been ingrained in us so much. So remember, own it. If you make a mistake, simply say you’re sorry and move on.

  1. Thank you for this teaching today.

  2. This is so true. To be able to say sorry and mean it is bigger than you think and it doesn’t make you less, it makes you “more”…

  3. Nice message, Stephanie. I feel it’s more true for the “mature crowd” out here, though it really applies to all of us. I’m not sure how many parents are helping their 20 and under crowd grasp the concept. But, we can always think good thoughts and hope for the best.
