Apologizing for Existing

From the raw, wise, and always wonderful Katie Riegel, another tender admission of vulnerability.

“When we feel like a burden on our loved ones, the comic recommends, we should thank them for their love and support rather than apologizing.

This recommendation is both lovely and smart. Words matter. Practicing gratitude has been linked to greater happiness and other benefits. And being acknowledged for their own wonderful selves gives our friends and loved ones more strength and energy to continue to support us. ‘Thank you’ creates a positivity loop.”
