    Here's Why You Should Start Replacing "I'm Sorry" With "Thank You"

    Save your big apologies for the important things.

    Using "sorry" as your go-to response is a pretty common little language habit.

    But the thing about the word "sorry" is that the more you say it, the less it means.

    Luckily, there's an easy trick that can limit the number of apologies you make in a day, while still being kind and respectful: instead of "I'm sorry," say "thank you."

    It's a really simple trick that works in a whole number of scenarios you might have previously said you were sorry about.

    The trick works because saying "thank you" can often be harder than saying "sorry."

    So, get out there and start practicing your thank yous, and save those apologies for the times that really warrant them.
