Most of my clients are women. The women I work with are very self-aware and know what they’d like to change or improve. Sometimes, their self-awareness can backfire, especially, when it leads to excessive apologizing.
What makes women apologize for so much? Here’s my top 10 list of what women apologize for:
1) Their choices/decisions
2) Hurting someone’s feelings
3) Their success
4) Working long hours
5) Not being more available to their children/spouse/parents/friends
6) Not having a perfect family
7) Not having a perfect home/house
8) Spending too much money
9) Not being a perfect mother
10) Not doing more
If you are a professional woman and find yourself apologizing for any of these, you may want to consider working with a spiritual life coach. Spiritual life coaching can help you become more confident in your choices so you don’t have to apologize for being you. Contact me for a 30 minute complimentary coaching conversation to determine if this is for you.
