The sorry not sorry trend            

There was a Pantene commercial related to this; about women saying sorry in the office too much. I get the initial concept behind this article and the aforementioned commercial: stop apologizing for things you are not sorry for. However, I am annoyed that this message is directed toward women only. The implication is that apologizing somehow makes you look weak, and that women should consciously stop apologizing so much. This should be nobody’s main agenda, male or female. Saying sorry shows strength. It shows manners. It shows the ability to empathize. It shows recognition of consequence to action. To encourage women to compromise good-nature and neutralize emotions by being selfish, rude, and thick-headed is absolutely absurd. What about the men who apologize too much? Are they somehow subordinate as well? A better approach here is to call upon men and women alike to be mindful of when they apologize. The problem that some men don’t apologize for their bullshit will not be solved by women following suit. I think a healthier idea is working on just being a good person. Save your sorries for when you mean it, but if one slips out because you are polite, don’t sweat it. Next up in making the world a more unpleasant place: say thanks less because let’s be honest, you really aren’t grateful for someone handing you a pen.

It’s such a stubborn reminder one perfect night’s not enough

A glance back
The small of yours
On the sink where I set your glass
A hand that rests there flat
A moment
And the recognition
That you give
When you shift position
Move your hip
Slightly in

We say nothing then out loud and
That’s what feels the most profound
