    Running Foot, you have my condolences and you are right to not be sorry, grief is felt by all just in different ways.

    I am not sorry that I wore a red dress to my old bosses funeral, it seemed right.

    I am not sorry that people are disappointed when they actually meet me.

    I am not sorry that life gave me autism, I got used to it and even if others can not?

    Blessings to all who post.

    I'm not sorry for being angry at people in the supermarket today who didn't have masks and didn't check in yet I've booked a vaccine I don't want to get, so my kids and small business can stop suffering.

    I'm not sorry that I'm angry with my partner for having people at his house today when it's 'no visitors to your house' yet he says we don't only end this with vaccination.

    I'm not sorry for being angry with my partner for not at least acknowledging my feelings when his sis' behaviour/actions affects me/us. If he cant change it at least acknowledge how it makes me feel.

    CMF i hear u. Sending a hug, if you will accept it.

    I'm not sorry for

    Needing lifeline, even though I didnt need it for a little while. It could help me and I deserve its service.

    I'm not sorry I wasn't so strong and assertive. My choices seem big because i'm unwell, and i need support now to gain confidence in moving forward. I'm not sorry Im not there yet, and that without the support, I couldn't fix certain issues in my life. I'm trying my best.

    I'm not sorry for not being pretty. I spent so long caring and i just dn't care now.

    I'm not sorry for being furious at people who held an engagement party on the weekend, and those that had an outdoor pub crawl both of which have now extended out lockdown till September, tighter redtrictions and caused curfew to be introduced

    Seriously, how selfish can people be?

    i;m not sorry for being unsure if something was right for me, and taking things slow

    i'm not sorry for having a messy loungeroom - just objectively a reslt of having a lot on my plate

    i'm not sorry for not having any supportive friends who are in my position - who relate to my struggles. I'm not sorry I'm alone and a bit lonely

    I’m not sorry for not baking that cake that is/was on my to-do list. I’d have eaten by now, & then I would have been sorry!

    I’m not sorry I’m angry about the very, very pushy telco man who harangued me for 45 minutes to buy a phone I didn’t want. And then didn’t do what I rang for.

    I’m not sorry I feel kooked up having to stay indoors.

    i'm not sorry for letting go

    i'm not sorry for taking a break

    i'm not sorry for not trusting the nurse at the hospital, who wanted to discharge me for her own reasons that had nothing to do with my best interests.

    I'm not sorry for indulging in a little daggy music tonight... hello John Mayer.
    I'm not sorry for crying a lot and feeling sad. Human emotion. Not sorry.
    I'm not sorry for not following the news or caring much about when this lockdown will end. i've surrendered. i just wanna be safe today, right now. the rest i can't even contemplate.

    I’m not sorry for being sleepy today. It’s cold, wet & dreary outside & lockdown drags on….and on…..and on….

    I’m not sorry for being fed up with “the news”. It will still be there when I feel ready to take notice again.

    I’m not sorry for looking forward to hearing what rewards NSW residents who are double dosed can have in September. Only if it’s getting a haircut or having a manicure, then I will be sorry. And cross. We can’t afford those things at any time.

    I'm not sorry for saying "thank you Ezzi" for you regards.

    I am not sorry for having a laugh at absurdity.

    I am absolutely not sorry for informing to another that they are not allowed to slap their own daughter.

    I am not sorry I have made a formal complaint to appropriate authorities about sexuality discrimination by a person in a position of power over me.

    I am not sorry that I stand up for individuals rights, especially when no one else does for that individual.

    I am not sorry I wrote about 1000 words to my best mate last night and showed him that I both love him and am revolted by his actions in some things.
