Stop Apologizing?

As a follow-on to yesterday’s post about a speaker who tells women to stop saying they’re sorry, now there’s a book with a similarly arresting title, “Girl, Stop Apologizing.” Like Speaker Maya Janovic, Author Rachel Hollis isn’t really telling people/women/girls not to take responsibility for wrongs done to others; instead, she’s trying to empower women who lack confidence by telling them, “Stop apologizing for who you are. It’s time to become who you were made to be.”

As women heed these experts’ advice and stop apologizing for their deficiencies, I hope they don’t stop making apologies altogether. Apologies grease the wheels of human interaction; there’s no need to stop all apologizing.
