Life is about choices. I think one should be able to say anything they choose and the people that love them, their family and true friends will understand them. No one should have to explain themselves. I once knew a girl who apologized for everything even when she was being herself that used to piss me off, then She apologized to me for pissing me off “oh my God”. Hence we’re not friends anymore. The moral of the story is be yourself, act the way you want, say what you want, but do so with respect and love! You will be just fine.
