Illustration Friday--Sorry

I think women apologize too much. Or maybe it's just me. I've apologized to people who ran into me, who cut me off, and who interrupted me. I've apologized when I knew I was right and to avoid conflict or hurt. It's instinctive. I can't seem to help it. I don't think I'm alone, though, as I've heard plenty of other women do the same thing. It begins to feel that we're apologizing for existing and I hate that it's become so ingrained in me, it's automatic. So I'm adopting a new motto and I'm asking for others to join me. Let's stop living under the tyranny of apologizing.

Ah...she looks so free, so self-assured, so...unapologetic! It's so true that women are always saying they're sorry. Is it our desire to be peacemmakers? Who knows... Anyway, I love this drawing. It has a great spirit!
