“’I’m sorry I’m so slow.’ ‘I’m sorry I’m holding you up.’ How often do you hear these words in the outdoors? How often do you say them?”
Stop saying you’re sorry to the people you do outdoor activities with, when you’re trying your best. At least, that’s the point of view of this woman outdoor guide. It’s a good point she makes and I hear it all the time. (Never from me; because I am not sorry I am slowing you up. You need to go slower.) I hear it all the time from climbers. I say, just admit you’re a miserable failure and stop apologizing for it.
