    Stop Saying Sorry // 3 Big Shifts and Self Awareness

    Stop saying sorry. In this post, our guest author Nicole is going to share exactly how she learned to STOP saying sorry, and why you should too.  “I’m sorry…”, “Please forgive me…” and Other Silly Things That Made My Life Difficult.

They suggested ways to increase self-esteem that seemed really ultimately counterproductive if done individually for people who really need an overhaul in this area.  I’ll give some background here before jumping into everything. Being raised in a dysfunctional family heavily affected by alcoholism, I didn’t have much of a shot to initially develop self-esteem. Quite the opposite really- I tried to survive and face many negative statements constantly being thrown at me. Consequently I developed a very low sense of self-esteem and once I reached…
