No matter how successful, cool or elegant we are, we all have our days or brief moments when our common sense and dignity bid their farewell to us. Blame it on your brain having a fart, on Mercury in retrograde, on waking up on the wrong foot, it doesn’t change anything.

And the idea that women especially should should say sorry less has gotten lots of attention recently. But is saying sorry actually bad for you and a thing you should try to stop ASAP? BuzzFeed Life talked to clinical psychologist Elizabeth Lombardo, Ph.D. and Deborah Tannen, Ph.D., professor of linguistics at Georgetown University and author of Talking From 9 to 5 to learn more about saying sorry and whether it's bad for us to say it a little too much. Or a lot too much.

There are certain times in all of our lives when it’s understandable to be a little demanding: when planning a wedding, when having a baby, and maybe even when it’s your birthday. But as you’ll soon find out, some people use getting married as an excuse to turn into absolute monsters.

As Tannen points out, women are often told that the way they talk (saying sorry, upspeak, vocal fry) makes them seem less confident or competent in the workplace. But the problem, says Tannen, is that the social pressures are sort of conflicting. On the one hand, women are expected to come across as non-threatening — saying sorry comes in super handy there — but they're also told saying sorry makes you sound less confident. WTF. In the end, you have to decide for yourself what's right for…
