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.

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…
