A filler word used when one does not know how to handle a serious and/or dramatic situation. Often mistaken for heartfelt compassion, shared sadness, or a sincere apology, the word β€œsorry” actually has no feeling of guilt, regret, or concern for the other person. Rather, it is used in an attempt to draw attention away from an uncomfortable scenario in hopes that the other person will accept it and move onto a different topic in the conversation. It is also the most commonly overused word in the world along with the likes of love, honesty, and fairness.
