So, why do we abuse this word so much? What profound sense of unconscious guilt do we have that makes us say sorry after even the most insignificant events? And why do we use say it so casually, so reactively when we don’t have anything to be sorry about?

When you’re scrambling to find an opening line.

When you feel bad for something that you did unintentionally.

When you’re asking for something that you want.

Apologizing too often eventually erases the sincerity behind it.
