Even if you have to crop out your friend. No need to feel bad. Even Kim crops out North if she's not bringing her A-game to the camera.

2. As a matter of fact, don't apologise for your selfie game FULL STOP.

Let's face it, your selfie game is always on point. Why apologise for a winning streak?

3. Don't be sorry for splurging on a new pair of shoes.

Or handbag. Or jacket. Or dress. Or any new item you see fit to purchase. All of these things are necessities.

Your honesty makes people uncomfortable, and uncomfortable people take action. Keep dropping those truth bombs, because you are really doing the world a favour.

5. Never apologise for rocking a strong lipstick.

6. Don't be sorry about asking for that raise.

Because honey, you're worth it – you know it, your colleagues know it, now it's time your boss knows it. No need for the tired, misplaced sense of politeness. That's partly why the pay gap is still a *thing*, ladies.

7. Don't apologise for ordering off-menu.

Mate, if you want your salad with no dressing, extra chicken, and a side of chips, then you get that. It's your money and your stomach, so you do you, because you are amazing.

8. Never say sorry for being a bit "weird".

We’re all very different and we’re all programmed differently, but one thing is for sure: EVERYONE is secretly a bit weird. So NEVER apologise for your quirks.

Everything you did in the past was just little milestones on the road to being you*. If someone can't get over that, then you don't need them in your life.

*obvs exception is if you were an axe murderer or something

10. Never apologise for ordering table service.

YOLO and all that.

YOLO and all that.

11. Never apologise for your dress sense.

"Who are you to say that my skirt is too short?"

All the best stories originate from staying out till dawn. Seriously, when has a story been bad when it started with, "So we were out all night long and..."? NEVER, that's when.

13. Never apologise for saying "no".

Sometimes you need to protect yourself from burnout.

So what that you look a hell of a lot fiercer than everyone else? They should be apologising to you for not reaching your impeccable standards.

15. Don't apologise for going to the afterparty on a work night.

The afterparty is where you belong. It would be a sin for you not to attend. Plus, you've become quite the make-up sorceress at covering up dark circles, so really, there is no reason to feel even a tad apologetic.
