Don’t Be Sorry

 

Dear Dumplin,

I saw this commercial by Pantene and was really moved by it.  Women often apologize unnecessarily and I am guilty of doing this myself.  This video serves as a reminder.  Never apologize for being present.  You are not a mistake.  You deserve to be here.  Be polite, be kind, be strong, be intelligent, be nice.  DO NOT be sorry if you have no reason to be.

I really love how Pantene resolved the problem of apologizing for no reason.  Be resolute in your existence.  Don’t apologize for having standards and making yourself heard.  You are worth it.

Love,

Mama
