Welcome to Junktown: Supporting people who are overly apologetic

realsocialskills:

Some people apologize all the time, for everything. This can be very annoying.

Here’s a conversation:

  • Mary: I like ice cream. I don’t want to order a slice of cake. I’m sorry.

As a person who is prone to being over apologetic, it is NOT fun when people who are your friends, even jokingly so, say that they will not be your friend anymore because of it. It makes you feel so much worse and makes you want to apologize more which is what started the entire issue. It ends up being this horrible circle of the person prone to over apologizing to feel so bad about themselves that they will probably shut out the outside world for awhile and not contact people….at least thats what I used to do..still sort of happens.
