I'm Not Sorry

"What are you sorry for?"

I can hear my mother saying those words to me today though she said them many years ago.

The chances are excellent that I had just done something stupid (I was a kid, after all) and had gotten in trouble and was pleading with Mom by saying, "I'm sorry" over and over and over.

In all likelihood, this pleading occurred right before a spanking (this was back in the 1960s and 1970s when this was not frowned upon like it is today).

How many times have you said "I'm sorry" to someone over the course of your life?

Ah, but here's a better question: how many times have you said, "sorry, not sorry"?

Or maybe you just thought it?

I was thinking about this topic recently, and then I decided to ask myself, "what aren't you sorry about?"

Now there's a thought-provoking question.

While this post may upset some (not my intent), this is how I believe.

I am NOT sorry for:

  • believing in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior
  • being an American
  • being white
  • no longer fully trusting the government, mainstream media, or social media
  • thinking that print books are superior to ebooks (even though they have the same content)
  • believing that my health (physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental) is my responsibility
  • no longer wearing a suit when I speak (sneakers, jeans, and a nice shirt for me)
  • voicing my opinion (in a respectful way, of course!)
  • having a goal to become a billionaire
  • wanting to own a private jet
  • desiring to be among the 1%

What are you not sorry for? 

I encourage you to create your own list.

It's not for "us" or "them" but for you.
