Anything that you never had control over
It’s one thing to apologize for things you did out of greed, jealousy or even simple negligence, but it’s easy to get into the bad habit of feeling responsible for things that were the result of circumstances beyond your control. You can still feel sad or mad, but stop apologizing for what you never did.
