Most life coaches and gurus will tell you that life's ultimate power lies in the word.... "NO!" Sometimes saying no, speaking the truth -no matter how difficult- and not backing down will save the most misery and heartache. And when the dust settles it's imperative for us to stand our ground and not be sorry. Not if you weren't in the wrong. Demi sings it best.... "Baby I'm Sorry, I'm not Sorry!"

Redditor u/MrMazme was wondering what things in life some people will not back down about by asking.... What are you not sorry about?



Watch your Step!

In Elementary School, a kid named Patrick was my bully and he'd do crap like "accidentally" bump into me and spill my lunch and step on the backs of my shoes. So one day, he was coming out of the cafeteria and I stuck my leg out and watched him trip face forward into the ground. We both got sent to the Principal's Office, and he got whatever the Elementary School version of an In-School Suspension was for his repetitive bullying while I got a slap on the wrist. Absolutely not sorry. HallownestSurvivor

Trim the Fat.... 

Cutting out my dad's side of the family from my life.

They made my life a living hell while I was growing up. I was the youngest of the cousins so I would regularly get beat up or locked in rooms (my dad worked nights). They would smash furniture and TVs then blame me. As a young adult all they did was cause more drama by still break things in my dad's apartment, or try to start physical fights.

I've had so many fist fights with my cousin from defending my property to protecting my cat (no one messes with my kitty). Once I moved out of my dad's I cut all contact with them. I maybe see them once a year when my dad tricks me into seeing them (he has the mentality of always forgive family). They know nothing of my adult life and I know nothing of theirs and I'm going to keep it that way. sk8erguysk8er

Now you see me... 

Sneaking pictures of my aunt into her fathers funeral slideshow behind her sisters back. The two never got along and one sister was in charge of the funeral. She was adamant about leaving out any photo with her sister in it. My aunt (the victim in this case) was very close with her father. So I lied to my other aunt that the slideshow was done and I downloaded a secret folder of pictures onto the slideshow.

She's so bad with technology that she didn't notice. Not sorry. My other aunt gave me a teary hug after the funeral and thanked me, she knew I had been the one to slip them in. She died last month of a sudden aneurism. I'd do it again, even if my other aunt never talked to me again. I sure miss her. batdog15

ME First! 

I'm not sorry for focusing on me and my needs. I used to be so concerned with taking care of all my friends and family to the point that I was I was sacrificing my needs for a lot of people who would not do the same for me. I've learned to cut toxic people out of my life and focus on my true close friends and family rather than trying to care for everyone. Being liked by everyone used to be so important to me and honestly it's so exhausting. I'm not sorry if people don't like me anymore. It's impossible to make everyone happy. As long as you're not being a complete @sshole, you need to take your needs into consideration as well. michmichmich777

Do What I Must! 

Making a post on Facebook telling everyone of my friends and family that they are scum if they are taking their kids around not only a convicted child molester, but continuing to allow him around their kids after he molested me for 5 years.

I caused a huge rift in my family but I'm still not sorry cause I'm not the dumba** allowing my kids to be molested. It's sad I have to air the dirty laundry but I'd rather protect the kids and maybe cause my cousins to think then not say anything and let it happen to their babies. WhitestTrash

Define "Right?"

My aunt was about to get married to this one rich scumbag who apparently treated her "right." My brother and I did some investigating over the fact that he had lots and I mean LOTS of female friends. A lot of stuff went on, but in the end, we found out who he was a sleeping with and is a sugardaddy to some one them. It was just three days before the actual wedding that we found out. Told our aunt about it, wedding was cancelled, aunt was upset to us as well for some reason, and we regret nothing. chimken_nuggerss

Don't Mess with the Dress! 

Not inviting my needy aunt to go wedding dress shopping with me. She's begged me already and has been dropping hints for months, but I'm not budging.

This is the one time in my life that something really is only about me, and I'm not going to deal with her drama that day.

I meant that the wedding dress shopping is only about me, not the wedding. SassiestPants

Creating a small "pet cemetery" in our parents' back yard, despite my father forbidding it.

It felt like the right thing to do - no regrets. Back2Bach

Who else has a stance they ain't backing down from?

It's a feeling that fills up the average vehicle owner with anxiety: What is that note doing on my windshield? Is it a nice message from a stranger or something? Nah, that's never the case. Chances are someone backed into you and left you their insurance information. Or maybe they did and told you to 'eff off. Who even knows?

Some of us are fortunate to be families of good cooks. Some of us are not so lucky, and that's a shame.

But whether you are or aren't, we've all sat down to a disappointing––if not downright awful––meal. And whether you've liked it or not, we've all been in a position where we had to eat something for fear of offending our host.

Steve Harvey and Miss Universe have this strange, ongoing relationship of someone giving false information.

Harvey nearly repeated history this week when it was believed that he gave the wrong name at the Miss Universe competition, again.

Teaching is a VERY stressful career to pick. It's not just about needing to know material and confidently deliver it to a classroom of students, but it also accounts for a little bit of making sure they don't do anything stupid during the school day. And the students in this Reddit post, well, let's just say they aren't exactly teacher's pet.

It feels like it would be a dream come true... "winning a lifetime supply!" That makes you feel lucky and special. It's backed up the idea there you'll never go without. It's exciting at first thought. That is until you realize you need to be specific about what you hope you get an bottomless inventory of, because unless it's money... there really is nothing else we need a lifetime supply of. But it's still a fun story.
