Have you ever felt that pressure? Even if it was not required for you to justify yourself, you still felt you had to say something because you felt "bad" or "guilty" or "ashamed"?
If you ever feel pressured to justify yourself ask yourself why,
✧ is it because of some internal pressure, because of some guilt of shame you're feeling?
In that case, just become aware of the pattern and see where it comes from; what are you feeling ashamed/guilty of within yourself?
✧ If it's someone who is trying to make you feel powerless or shame you, you don't have to explain, you don't owe anyone an explanation. You are powerful and noone can take your power away.
