The Apology Board is a listing of sorry messages sent in by our readers. Some are profound and truly heartfelt while others are simply expressions of regret.
By posting a message about how sorry you are to a place where others have shared their remorse, reminds us all that we're human and we all make mistakes. Posting an apology for the world to see won't undo the wrong but it can make us feel better by sharing our thoughts and feelings with others who find themselves in similar situations.
First thing I'd like to apologize about is how I treat you, and how much disrespect I show you. You never ever deserve that, considering how much stress you have and problems you deal with. I take for granted of all of the advice you give me about life and my relationship. You are the best mom ever, and everyone loves to learn a bunch of things from you, like gardening and fishing, and so many other things..
Second.. I'm sorry about having drugs on me. Especially in school. Knowing that I had a huge chance of messing up my future AND what I had in-front of me as of that time. It is a bad influence on anybody who looked up to me and a bad look for you as you are my parent even though it was not your fault, but mine.
I know now how much I hurt you, how many times I was impatient with you when (I see now) you were doing the best you could. I was so hateful and hurtful to you and you always forgive me. I love and care for you so much. Even though I may not show that, and I'd give anything to be able to make it up to you. It's too late for that, of course. I pray that you can forgive me one more time. I understand that I was wrong to do that. It's important to do the right thing even when no one is around. And I wish that I had.
I didn’t want to hurt you, and I will take full responsibility for what I did. I really regret doing it now because I know I am in a deep hole. You guys mean a lot to me and I keep ruining our trust by lying and going behind your back. Next time I will do the right thing, because it will not get me in trouble, because it feels worse when you're upset with me. I hope that I can earn your trust again by being more honest. All I can do now is fix what I broke and just keep getting better. Building up our trust more and making our bond stronger. I love you so much I’m so sorry.

Jenny, I am sorry for what happened with John. For betraying our friendship and not even considering your feelings.I acted out of my own insecurity, jealousy and vindictiveness. I was wrong, and it was a mistake I sincerely regret. I hope that you can find it in your heart to forgive me and that you and your daughter have found peace and happiness.

I'm sorry for all the people that I have hurt. I want them to forgive me and know that I didn't mean to be so rude. I also want them to move on from the past or how others treat them because of me.

Dear God I am so sorry. You are always with me, trying to guide me and help me follow the right way for me. Instead I lied to 2 people today. I left to get a telephone from home and when called back to work I lied to say that I was ill and needed some time instead of admitting I left work. I was also very rude to a man who only wanted my help. I shouted at him and treated him badly, instead of listening to him and helping him work through the problem nicely. I know you want me to help others and treat people well and honestly. In these last 2 days, I have failed you miserably. I am so sorry. I know I need to not do this again and I promise to do my best not to fall in this trap again.

I've done so many things wrong...and the worst was not stopping bad behavior when I was given so many chances. I know the best way to make up for this is to live the right way and henceforth I will. I have been trying to do so. I don't deserve it but I beg for forgiveness ...and pray that I may not waste the rest of my life in regret.

I'm really sorry eliza. I didn't mean to choose them over you. I just don't have a clue what's going on. I'm scared and sad and I'm hurting everyone because of it. I'm sorry I can't just press an off button to myself. I hope this doesn't break us.

I am sorry that I can be and have been a shitty girlfriend. I think I have focused so much lately on what I don't have rather than focusing on what I do have and that has allowed myself to not be the person you fell in love with.
I am working towards bettering myself and allowing myself to move on and past the things that upset me, because at the end of the day, I need to let go of the things that won't matter tomorrow. Aside from acknowledging the things I need to work on, I am missing and need you to give me and show me more affection and love. You say you do, but I just want to be told "I love you" instead of having to force you to say it.
I can't even tell you the last time you said it. I don't want what your parents have, where affection and love aren't present. If at the end of the day you don't love me, then let me go.

Sometimes I act before I think. I am so sorry. Never once did I think of the way you might feel. I wish I could turn back time. You are a very good friend of mine and I hurt you. I am so very sorry and I hope you can forgive me.

To J....Sorry for not doing what you should do. Sorry for creating a problem. Just let me be carried away by the great desire that exists between us.

Dear Garrett, I was completely wrong for yelling at you when you were talking to your friends. The truth is I was extremely tired and not feeling great so probably yelling at you was a reaction to myself feeling tired plus feeling neglected. When I agree to hang out with friends, I don't expect the friend to talk to the outside world. I want all of the attention focused on me. I should have been patient and waited for you to be finished. Can we regroup soon. I really wanna try to make up and not be like Sebastien anymore. I really like you and I hope we can try to make our friendship better. See you soon. -Josh

Regarding my bad behavior in Lawrence, Kansas. This is a genuine apology to a gentleman who scolded my bad behavior, but I was young, immature and snotty.
We were strangers. It was approximately 1990. I was 20 years old, and a young lady. You may have been 30-something, perhaps a father? Perhaps a Christian? One morning, we were driving South on Michigan Street, just past a small school. I passed you, and at the stop light at the intersection of Michigan Street and 6th Street, you got out of your car to scold me, saying: "This is a school zone!" I mouthed off about "always doing that".
However, I have felt ashamed of my poor attitude all of these years (it took many years to recognize this). I did not know who you were, and when I found this "Apology" forum, I decided to put this apology "out there" in case you see it. I am a born again Christian and I have prayed about my bad behavior. I pray that you read this...And that you recognize yourself and can forgive me.

Leigh, I'm So Sorry! I know that I lied to you and that it wasn't the first time. I am truly, deeply sorry. I SWEAR I will not lie to you again. I will be truthful, no matter what. And I will NOT smoke again, EVER. You are so very important to me. I love you more than you will ever know.

Alex, I'm sorry. I've had a hard time with the changes over the last few months, and I haven't known how to deal with them. I realize now, that what I should've done, is just keep the focus on my own self- drive in my own lane, as they say, and certainly not in your back seat.
I am so sorry for all of the silent, pouty faces, and for the sideways remarks in front of your friends, and for the nagging. I never wanted to make you feel unloved or disapproved of. I wish I'd had more control over myself, and been the loving girlfriend you deserve, then maybe just a few words would've had more weight.
You're an amazing, smart, beautiful man, and I see such a bright future for you. I will miss seeing myself in it. I trust you to look after yourself, and that you'll pull in the reigns when you need to. I promise you won't have to hear me lecture or nag about it, again, even if it's only because we are no longer together. I'll miss the way we meld- you and I together was amazing. I love you more than you know, and will miss making you sandwiches- even though I've only made a few.

I don't even know where to start... I know I've hurt you numerous times and I know it feels as if I do not respect, love or care for you. You are my everything, my heart and for what I've done in the past, I'm genuinely sorry. You are my other half, you complete me and without you here by my side, I feel incomplete... I don't feel whole. On this day, I vow to never disrespect you. I vow to love you with every ounce of me. I vow to care for you through my actions. I vow to stop everything I said I would stop.
I know what it feels like to not have you here.. and I can't live that way. I'm so sorry for everything... for all of the pain I've caused you, for making you doubt me. I will do everything in my power to earn your trust back. I love you, with everything in me. Please forgive me...
