The Apology Message Board

I'm sorry

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.

Need to say sorry for something you've done? Then... Post your own message to the apology board!

Dear Love, I'm sorry I made you doubt my feelings. You've always been very important to me and I just want the best for you. Sorry I hurt you and mistreated you. Sorry I was being complicated. Be well!

I'm sorry Tapiwa for everything you've been through. I should have been there for you to remind you of who you are and what you deserve. Please forgive me. And be happy baby girl because that's what you deserve. I love you.

My Ode To Ash-e-ley... First things first. Ashley, I love you more than life itself and you're all I think about these days. I'm so terribly sorry that I lied to you and I want for nothing more than to take it back. I want you to know that you can trust me and if you only could find it in your heart to forgive me then I would spend the rest of my life apologizing. Literally nothing would make me happier than to make you happy. I want to show you that you can trust me and that I can be worthy of it. I can make you happy, I know it, and I would do absolutely anything you asked without hesitation. If only I could be with you. Today, tomorrow, and always. Please try again Ashley.

Being separated from you is like being divided from a piece of my soul. You're still the most beautiful girl in the world and will always be. I love you Ash-e-ley. More than you'll ever know and I'm so sorry.

To my best friend...I think everything that happened is my fault. Ever since I told you about him, you've acted so cold towards us. I never knew how unhappy you could be for me. I've always thought we'd always be there for each other. I hope you can forgive me for not talking to you anymore. Or for not saying happy birthday to our close friend.

I've lost so many friends in a couple months. I dont know why I let it happen. I've known you since we were in elementary school. I remember playing outside during recess and you came over. That was the first time I met you. Then 9 years later, we became inseparable. Our friends even thought we were related. I experienced high school with you. We skipped together and laughed together those two years. Then you left. You left to that other school where he went. I don't understand why you decided to leave me...and go there...with him. I was happy for you I really was but...I couldn't see you as often. Then you started working too. I barely even talked to you anymore. Now, I miss you. And I never knew how much I needed you until I realized I started looking at old pictures of us together just being goofy. And I want to have my best friend back.

I don't know what else to say other than...I'm sorry.

Hey there Princess, I know we haven't talked for a while now but you've been stuck on my mind. I really want to let you know that I'm sorry about everything. If I've caused you pain, I really wish I could go back and take it away. I think it might be best we don't talk anymore like you had asked for, if this is still what you wish, this will be my last message. I'm very sorry, I hope you'll take care of yourself and become a great person. If it's what you wish, I hope we never see each other again. I mean what's the possibility? 1/7 billion. I wish you the best of your future endeavors, I think you'll probably do great in anything you put your heart to.

I am so sorry. I guess that's how all apologies start out, huh? But I'm the worst hypocrite ever. I got bullied myself and yet I hurt you. Just to fit in. How low can I get? I've been punishing myself for it for ages, wondering about how to apologise but knowing I can't... That kills me.

I can't because I don't know where you are. I don't know what's happened to you. I don't know anything about you right now. I hate that I was mean and horrible to you, before. I hate that I was a cruel monster to you. If only I could see you once again, I would apologise a thousand times over. Please, please, please forgive me. Even if you probably won't see this. It's been tearing me up inside that I hurt you. I hope I can find you so I can tell you how sorry I really am.

I apologize for my behavior.To anyone that I have offended, hurt by my words, hurt by my actions, or generally pissed off, I am truly sorry. I have been struggling with an addiction to cocaine and have been struggling to kick the habit. Please don't take anything I have done over the past 4 years as part of my true character. I have been depressed and mixed up, and have had enough. My first order of business is to completely admit that I do not have anything under control and can not control my actions when under the influence. I am not asking for forgiveness as I do not expect that, I just want anyone whom I have wronged that I am truly sorry.

I bumped your small toddler on an overcrowded D train at Barclay Center this morning with my bag as I was trying to exit. I didn't see either her or you when I was squeezing by - you were on my blind side and there were so many people crowding in as I was trying to get out the door before it closed. You made a loud "oh come on comment" and I turned and gave an irritated look and failed to say I'm sorry. I was irritated and tired and trying to get out of the crowd. Hitting your toddler was an accident and likely not avoidable in that crowd BUT failing to acknowledge your concern and apologizing was very wrong on my part. I am sorry for that. I hope you two forgot about me quickly and went on to have a great day.

Sincerely... Impolite, jerk face lady on the D train

I would like to apologise for what happened at school. For accusing you of assaulting me when you did not. For lying about it afterwards. For allowing my boyfriend to believe it. As a consequence you were accused, shamed and physically assaulted. Only now do I understand how painful and damaging this must have been for you and I express my sincere remorse. I hope that you have found peace and joy in life.
