Sometimes, you get it wrong by doing or saying things – it’s good to say “sorry” and “apologize”.
But when you rock the boat and rightly so, don’t be apologetic.
Yes, your actions/words could cause disaffection and dislikes but no need to please everyone on your way up.
Stick to your gun, fire that which is right and don’t worry about the consequences especially how others may feel.
And in all these, remember you are human and can’t be wrong always – so know when not to apologize for what is right.
