Have you ever gone through something so earth shattering like cancer, a death in the family, or a severe injury and when friends hear about it they say, "Oh I'm so sorry." I always think, "Why are YOU sorry. You didn't do it to me! There is no reason to apologize to me for something we have no control over."
Now, I realize I'm wired backwards for this planet, but why don't we state the positive like...I'm so glad you are beating your cancer, Gee he lived such a good life, I sure enjoyed having him in my life, or I'm sure this is just a temporary set back, you'll be better in no time.
STOP BEING SO DAMN SORRY ALL THE TIME!
