Don't Apologize

Don't apologize for being you
Don't apologize for your race
Don't apologize for your face
Don't apologize for your body
Don't apologize for your color


Don't apologize for your family
Don't apologize for your hair
Don't apologize for liking someone
Don't apologize for your gender
Don't apologize for your religion
Don't apologize for saying no


Don't apologize for liking a song/movie/show/anything else
Don't apologize for your imperfections
Don't apologize for being scared
Don't apologize for not knowing
Don't apologize for being bad at something you can't help but be bad at
Don't apologize for telling the truth



Don't apologize for your country of origin
Don't apologize for your mental illness
Don't apologize for your disability
Don't apologize for being you
Don't ever ever apologize for something you can't change or have no control over

  1. I sincerely wish artists (like Kathy Griffin) wouldn't apologize. Being offensive is sometimes necessary to tell an essential truth or make an important point. Freedom of expression ought to be something we cherish and defend.

    1. True. Sometimes it is essential. Things like holding a bloody head though might just go the tiniest bit too far.

    2. Yes, and some of us would have preferred that it was the Putin Puppet's actual head.

      Art can be misguided, foolish and sometimes just plain wrong, but it must be FREE.

  4. That's really true. Things happen for a reason. Sometimes it's just beyond our control and we just have to go on with it..
