Words to Use: “I’m sorry I interrupted you. Please continue.”

It is considered disrespectful to interrupt someone. But sometimes we just do – unintentionally. If you catch yourself interrupting, apologize right away. “I’m sorry I interrupted you, I get excited about this topic. Please continue.” You can also say, “If I do it again, please call me out on it.” This shows that you recognize that it is disrespectful and it is something you want to work on.

If you notice that you interrupt often, think about what it going on for you when you interrupt. That is something you ought to work on.
