Our words are so important. Our brains process so much information on so many levels. And, sometimes they take what we say literally, especially when we no longer even think about the meaning of the words we are using because they are so common and culturally ingrained.
Take the words “I’m sorry”. How often do you use those words to express comfort, condolences, empathy, sympathy, and/or compassion? How often do you hear those words in movies or on television? Often. I’m sorry. So simple yet with the capacity to impart so many different levels of feeling.
The thing is, how do you know that your brain is not taking the words literally? I’m sorry. No, you’re not. You’re awesome. But, you may be sorry about something or that something happened or didn’t happen. To say “I am sorry that _______” or “I am sorry about _______” may carry vastly different information to the storage and cataloguing areas of your brain than “I’m sorry”. You just don’t know, do you? Personally, I’d rather be safe than sorry (couldn’t help myself!).
So, during the holidays when you are catching up with people you may not see often and hearing their stories, think before you say “I’m sorry”. You may really wish that something hadn’t happened to them or have such compassion for what they are going through. Try a different expression this time. Culturally, we automatically assign feelings and value to those two words. We do the same when we expand on them to identify what we have those feelings about.
You can learn a new trick! I have faith in you! Be aware unless you dare – dare to possibly manifest the results of your brain believing that you are a sorry piece of work. Because, that isn’t you and you know it. But, beliefs are tricky. You can have them running in the background impacting your life and have no clue they are there. In fact, energy test “I’m sorry”. Good for you if you get a “no” on that one! Let’s keep it that way!
Enjoy your time with family and friends and keep yourself safe and not sorry.
