I was just having this convo with a friend. I asked her why she kept apologizing... abd she said you're supposed to apologize wheb you're wrong.
I'm like no... you apologize wheb you hurt someone. being wrong is a part of life.

that said.. I have seen this in action. I've had women apologize to me for asking a question. It's just one of those societal things that is subtly taught to a lot of women.

IMO.
yeah its weird when that happens. makes me very uncomfortable. cause then the convo turns into..im sorry.. no its ok. Sleepy

Sometimes it just comes out, automatically.
Politeness, not apologetic

People use sorry as a form of emotional currency.

I don't think I say it inappropriately but I am mindful of why and when I say it

I'm from the south so I am big on respecting others and manners
