There is a need to balance work and relationships. You have deadlines to meet, but you also have loved ones to care for.
While there may be one or two things that challenge you today, you will not be intimated easily and you will not run away and hide. Your character is a strong combination of intelligence and action today, and the people around you will sense that this is not a good time to poke the bear.
Stop apologising. The word sorry is meant for genuine situations where you have caused harm. Overusing it in the workplace can make you appear timid.
