A profound lesson I learnt recently
We apologise a lot.
Saying “I am sorry” is second nature to most of us who think that it’s a polite way to make put things in order.
Wrong. It’s not.
So instead, try “Thank you”.
Next time when you are late, don’t say “I am sorry for being late”, instead say “Thank you for being patient.”
Say “Thank for listening” instead of “Sorry for the trouble”
Say “Thank you for your time” instead of “Sorry, I hope I did not disturb you”
When you say “Thank you”, you let the world focus on a positive sentiment. And it needs more of it.
Thank you for reading.
