When You’re Actually Not Sorry
Don’t apologize sarcastically. Saying sorry when you don’t mean it can elicit a worse reaction from the person that you’re apologizing to, than not apologizing at all. Insincere apologies are more obvious to the other person than you might think.
When You Stand Up For Your Values
Sometimes you are put in an uncomfortable situation by your coworkers or even your boss. If you’re being asked to do something that goes against your moral or personal values, it is alright to say no without apologizing.
