As Mothers we live hectic lives. Whether you are a working mom, stay at home mom, run a ranch like me or work from home our lives are hectic. So why do I see us constantly apologizing for maybe not having all of our shit together? We seem to be apologizing for things that I think merit no apology at all!
Yes, Some days I don’t brush my hair. I’m not sorry! I’m not keeping up with the Joneses!
Done with my apolgizing…..And you should be too!
I’m done apologizing if and when I’m late- Sometimes my minions aren’t listening and things aren’t going my way. And if they are, at the precise moment we have to leave someone has to poop! I’m not sorry.
I’m done apologizing for my witty humor that is sometimes offensive- That’s called not letting things get to you. Or maybe it’s called crazy. Either way it’s me. It’s my crazy. I like it. So do my kids and husband. It may not be your kind of funny. It may be offensive and sarcastic and true but somebody needed to say as well as hear it!
I’m done apologizing when I forget shit- Oh, I forgot to wish you a “generic” Happy Birthday on Facebook? Or RSVP for your shower? I may (or may not) have my own shit going on that by the way you forgot about too and I am not giving you shit about! I know I’m not crazy though. If it weren’t for my calendar I would never even know what day it was!
I’m done apologizing for swearing- Could you not say that shit? It offends my ass!? Really? NO! I swear like a sailor but know when it’s not the right time to do so and it’s a habit. Like smoking. Do I tell you not to smoke around me? No. So shut the hell up!?
I’m done apologizing for my cooking or sometimes lack there of- I can cook but sometimes don’t want to. And when I do someone is always complaining about it. I don’t like this, I don’t want this. What is this? Ugh! The days are long on the ranch and the kids are getting older. Cereal for dinner for the kids is great! Salad for dinner every night is great too. Don’t judge. Be jealous. Simple, less clean up.
I’m done apologizing for having an opinion and then saying it- Someone had to.
I’m done apologizing for that drink or three at the end of the day- It may not be everyday but when I do It’s like a pot of gold at the end of a demented rainbow! Everyone’s happier!
Apologies are a way we subconsciously seek the approval of others. Frankly I don’t give a shit about the approval of others and neither should any of you. I get all the approval I need from my 2 beasties and awesome husband! They love me, Despite me.
