MK....I'm so so sorry. I am truly sorry for what I did to you. I've not known peace since then. I wonder sometimes if I should reach out and apologize in person. But you've moved on, you look like you're excelling in what you do. I do not want to pop back in just to give you further pain. I was a coward, and I'm truly ashamed of my behavior. So sorry.

I'm sorry Angel. I never intended to hurt you like this, I am terribly sorry, please forgive me. You are the sun of my life, my angel, and with you missing I have grown afraid of the dark. This is not a cheap act I do to seek your forgiveness. I have truly repented for all the things I’ve done, and I want to say I am truly sorry and I love you more than you can ever imagine. If you choose to forgive me, then I promise I will be different, and make your life, no, our lives, better. I love you.

Sorry UwU... I'm so sorry for being aggressive and angry with you. I hope I wasn't mean or made ya'll feel bad. I always feel threatened and I get defensive. I feel like everyone's looking down on me or they think they're superior to me thats' why I'm trying to show em who's boss.

But I'm never actually mean I just want to be friends. I'm sorry for being angry, I think it's just my genes. Please forgive me and give me a chance, get to know me better. Dont ignore me please because that just makes me more angry. This is just my character, please dont take it personally.

J... I don't know how to convince you but I want to say the past days things have been bad between us. I know there is some misunderstanding between us and I want you to know things haven't changed between us.

I am not the perfect girlfriend one can be. I get crazy mad and of course jealous and insecure and that's because I am too scared of losing you. Please, I am so sorry for letting my insecurities get the best of me.

Love, Claudia

I don't know man. I tried hard to convince myself to love you, and I forgot about myself. Our relationship always felt like you kept taking, and I kept giving- God. I Love you ******. But not in that way.

I hope you're well and your mental health is better. I'm sorry I didn't have the balls to confront you with my real feelings. I'm sorry. - A

What I did was wrong and I didn't have any bad intentions. Before I knew it, I slipped into a cycle I thought I could get out of any time, until I was stuck.

One day I realised how awful what I was doing was, and gave me the drive to end it. Still, I hurt countless people that didn’t deserve it.

If you’re out there, I’m sorry. You’re amazing people and I should never have done such a thing. I don’t expect to be forgiven, I just want you to know that I apologise.

Posted by A.C.M.

T.B., I’m so sorry for all the mistakes I’ve made. I never meant to ever hurt you or anyone else. It wasn’t until I could look back in hindsight that I realized I had made such huge errors in judgement at all the forks in the road.

Please forgive me and know that I have been paying for my poor choices and bad decisions everyday ever since. I am genuinely deeply sorry and truly happy for your happiness. You deserve all things good in your life.

Sincerely, A.C.M.

Dear -----, I am so sorry for hurting you. All you did was love me for who I was, but I treated you like sh*t and took advantage of how amazing you were. Granted, neither of us are perfect, but that's how you saw me. I messed with your life and made it so much worse. I made your dark place so much darker and I'm really sorry. I know you will never see this, but I finally figured out what love is. Rawr.

Posted by I'm Sorry My Kitty

Im writing this apology letter to beg forgiveness from god and a poor little kitten. I brought a stray kitten home today. I already have a 2 year old male cat which was also stray. He is not a violent or viciously attacking type.

Today while I was introducing the kitten, my cat attacked that poor little kitten out of nowhere and bit her in the neck. I tried so hard to pull him apart but by that time the kitty was losing too much blood already and she bled to death in my arms. I only wanted to help the little baby but if I hadn't brought her home she would still be alive. Little kitty and dear God please forgive me and my cat. I hope you cross the rainbow bridge and get to heaven. You did not deserve this pain. You deserved a lot of love and care, I hope you get that in heaven. Please take care of the little baby dear God. I will remember you always and I'm so so sorry for my mistake.

Dear y/n... I am so sorry that I ever hurt you, you mean so much to me as a friend and a person. Looking back at the things I have said and done over the past few weeks has really made me hate the person I have become. I hope that we can put this trouble past us, as we have so much history, and memories together. If not, I will never forgive myself for ruining what we had, because you were the best thing that has happened to me in a very long time.

I understand if you want time to reflect on the past few weeks, as that would be smart. I am hoping we could have a fresh start start from the beginning, because I hope that we can have back our great friendship of, laughs and endless memories.. I hope you consider forgiving me. From me

Allison Sta..., so sorry for being so deceitful during our on again off again relationship. I wish I would have been a better person. I've learned the hard way. I Pray you'll forgive me at some point ...Love Charles.

Over 50 years ago, as a naive teenager, I went along with a joke and hurt a really great guy. I am so sorry.

Posted by Kimberley

My darling partner.. Although I'll never be able to live or imagine life without you, all I want for you is to be happy because you deserve it.

Sometimes I hurt you without myself realising how much damage I cause. I love you and I'll never stop, but if letting you go will grant me your forgiveness, I'm sorry I can't do that. I'd rather spend the rest of my remaining life seeking forgiveness.

I'm sorry I hurt you and made you feel like I don't appreciate you, oh the stars know how much I appreciate you. You're my hero, my friend , my partner. There's nothing in the world I would do to make you forgive me and come back to our love. We share so much, and I don't want to lose you.

I have gone through multiple cry sessions, and I realised that I don't want to apologise to you in person because I'll never be able to stop crying, and I don't want you to feel like I use that against you.i am so sorry baby for hurting you Love....

To the girl who flipped me off as she angrily got out of line behind me at the drive thru: I didn't even know why you did it at first, and then...I am such an idiot. I did not understand that I had inadvertently cut in the drive-through line that I now think spanned two parking lots.

It was my first time doing a drop at my company's bank, but no excuses-- what I should have done was scope the whole situation before I pulled in. I really hate it when people cut in line.

I am in my fifties, and I have never knowingly done it, but now I do know that I can be as oblivious and clueless as the person who deserves to be flipped off. I am so sorry. I can't fix it for you but please know that I will do better.

Dear sister,

I am sorry that I was part of what caused you to end our relationship because I know how important family is to you. I miss you and your family. If you ever change your mind, I would welcome the opportunity to restore our relationship. I wish the best for you forever.

Love, Your sister.

Dear Utkarshini,

We don't know each other at all but years ago we crossed paths on social media. I came to know about you through a person I was obsessively in love with and apparently my lover used your name to impress me so that I would consider him a cool dude and agree to his proposal. Funny right?

As days passed my love for him started becoming obsessive and it was my first relationship, so dealing with the girls he told me about started becoming difficult to hear when in fact all he was trying to do was impress me and in reality he had nothing at all to do with any girls he spoke about, he didn't even know any of them including you. But I had started believing him and my insecurities peaked. I developed a lot of emotional pain and regretfully, when I came across you I sent those extremely unjustifiable snarky messages.

I am sorry I truly am. I am sorry for creating so much emotional pain for you. I don't even know if I deserve your forgiveness! Well, I just want to tell you that you are a beautiful, smart, wonderful, ambitious, cultured, kind-hearted soul. May God be with you always because you deserve the best always ♥️🤗

Posted by Amon T.

I can't believe what a fool I was to lie to you the way I did. I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me and allow me to show you the kind of love and respect you truly deserve. There are 2 limitless things in my life right now. My respect for you and the sense of guilt and regret I am feeling after what I’ve done. Please forgive me, I love you.

Posted by M.S.

Hi Leo,I'm sorry for my behaviour sometimes (I think something's wrong with me because I just have weird mood swings and I can't help it). I hope you can bare with me :( I'm still growing (not literally though T^T) but yes I'm still improving :) I hope that you will always be at my side on my journey to that. -love Mary G.

Posted by Makenzie

I'm sorry that I'm pretty. That I can't do anything right. That I gave my heart to a boy and made some bad decisions.

I'm sorry that I wasn't enough for him. I'm sorry that I lost myself. I'm sorry for a lot of things. I love this boy and I made some mistakes.

I'm highly emotional, I'm messy, and I am absolutely terrified of people leaving me. Because that's what people do, leave. And I just realized that the boy I love might have just liked me for my face and body. And now I think my friend thinks I'm a sl*t, and I don't blame her. I'm despicable. So I'm sorry. For everything.

My dear niece Kelsy B; hope and pray you are doing well, I miss hearing from you. Maybe it is that July 4th celebrations were always best with you around. Please forgive me for all things bad and know I am always here for you. Also, I pray for your safety and prosperity often; I know you will do great in the Portland area. If you can find the time to call; I will listen. Uncle Bill

Dear Alex... I believe in the right person at the wrong time thing and that’s how I feel about us. We’re young and immature and neither one of us know what we’re doing.

I have made many mistakes, and I’ve broken your trust. I am incredibly sorry for all the things I did to you.

We both wanted it to work, and it did not. There’s always a next time.

You mean the world to me and I didn’t mean to hurt you. You’re an amazing person and you’ve impacted my life for the better. I want you to be happy even if it’s not with me because you deserve the best. I love you no matter what, and I hope life treats you well. -m.s

Posted by 'N'

Hey... I'm writing this to apologize to you. This was a very pointless argument. The reason we fought in the first place was because we both wanted to be the most important for each other, and you hate him and I hate her. But we shouldn't let them get in between us.

I only said that you guilt tripped me because I felt bad about you apologizing when it wasn't either of our fault. I didn't mean it and even if I had a small doubt now I know you won't ever try to guilt trip me.

In the beginning I was scared you'd manipulate and blackmail me but now I know you won't do anything which will hurt me. I don't hate you. I like you for the way you are and I won't ask you to change. That doesn't mean you're a bad person either. You're the best everything to me.

I still can see you for who you really are rather than what you are on the outside. So don't be disappointed in me yet. I can be a wreck sometimes. And, I can say things purposely to hurt you. It is just a part of who I am I guess.

So I want to apologize for being a d*ck even if I don't have one... lol. I really don't want you to feel like I don't care about you. I still do and I will always.

So I'm sorry and let's go back to being how we were. Please forgive me for everything I said.

I'm sorry that I didn't keep my promise to you. I'm sorry I just wasted your time waiting for me just to tell you it's over. I'm sorry for giving you false hope. I'm sorry for being the one reason why you're always crying in the night. I'm sorry... I'm so sorry...

Barbel... After all these years I really must apologise for the way I treated you. When I returned home from Berlin and returned to my humdrum life I felt that I could not live up to the promises that I had made to you.

I lived a dull life, I was never going to be a great jazz drummer and somehow it all seemed so hopeless. I realise now that I never gave you a chance to understand how I was feeling - I just stopped writing and that was unforgivable. I'm sure now that you would have stood by me no matter what, I was just too immature and didn't know how to deal with how I felt.

Barbel I am so sorry for the way that I hurt you. Why did I throw away something so precious as your love for me? I'm sorry.

Posted by Kelsey

Dear God,

I am so sorry for the reckless foolish things I have done. I realize my immature ways and hope to change through you and ask that you continue to protect and guide me through this lifetime. I love you so much and thank you for your continued blessings.

Posted by Symphony

Hey, I am sorry. I really want to reply to your message but I can't trust you enough to do so. Yes, it has nothing to do with you. It's more of my own personal situations. Hope you understand this.

Thanks for the times you have been kinder to me. But then you have been unreachable few times too. Anyways now since I know what I do not want clearly, I do things accordingly. This seems to be one of them, I mean not replying to the unexpected message out of the blue.

I hope you understand that my respect for you hasn't changed but then my preferences have. So, this apology letter is to the person whom I met during my personal loss for 2 days and definitely not in touch after that. I don't have the heart to remember the panic and anxiety I had faced which I think might come to me if I reply to this person.

Sorry again.

Posted by Lois D.

Dear Debby,

Yep, it’s Lois again! Since I literally cannot get you out of my mind or even begin to forgive myself for my rotten behavior to you - the person who gave me so much hope, support, kindness and generosity, (to say nothing of a job, San Francisco, and happiness that I never, ever experienced from my godawful family - I need to try to communicate with you again.

Suffice it to say I am sorry, have shed like a million tears, have tried to off myself because of my regret. You deserved my undying thanks, gratitude, and love - but instead received the absolute worst, most immature and insane behavior I was capable of.

I am so, so sorry. I miss you so much it’s driven me crazy for years. I miss you. I love you, and I am sorry.

Shannen...Hey, I know this is out of the blue but I want to make it clear this isn’t me trying to re connect or anything like that.

I basically just wanted to apologise, which I know is dumb because it’s 5 years too late. But I wanted to say sorry for everything, for hurting you, your family all of it. The way I handled everything and how I behaved was immature and unfair on you. I realise this doesn’t count for much now and I’m sorry for that too. I’m not expecting you to reply so don’t worry but it was just something I wanted to say to you.

Posted by Cherise

Dear Matt... First off, thank you for showing me who you truly are that was the best thing you ever could have done.

You had me for two years in a dream zone that was everything I wanted to hear. It was a massive shock to my system when I always felt in my heart that you were never true to me. I begged the Gods above to show me the truth and they did. I just didnt know how to deal with it.

This is not an apology to you this is an apology to myself. For allowing someone of your nature to ruin me from the inside out... even though its been a year I still hold on to all the hate and anger I feel for you.

Today I am letting go of all that. As I am ruining my new relationship by thinking he is the same as what you were. He deserves better then that. So do I.

May life only bring you what you truly deserve.

Posted by Chuck L.

Laura, I apologize for not trying to build something meaningful with you. I really thought we clicked and just wished I would have understood what a relationship needed to grow. I didn't try, sadly.

I was moving so fast and wished, looking back, that I would have slowed down and took a breath and realized what a nice person you seemed to be and let things mature at a natural pace. I was immature for as old as I was.

So this is my apology for being a big dummy and not understanding that relationships need time. I'm Sorry...Chuck.

I realise some of the mistakes I've been making, and I hope to fix them

I'm sorry to have broken your trust. I should value your love more. I should be more open to you and respect you more I hope lord gives me the power to do this and make amends. I should respect you, my father, more. Even when you second-guess me, you love me and it is for my own good.

Antoinette D., I hope you're well and your family is also. I'm writing this in hopes you see it some day here on the internet. I apologize for my insensitive behavior abruptly ending our short relationship.

My insecurities, I didn't want to try and reach out via Facebook or anything to apologize because of it being disruptive to you. I wanted you to know, thinking back, that your love for your family and quiet grace and faith you always had left a lasting impression with me and I hope that you found everything you were looking for relationship wise. I've gotten closer to my Faith and try to help people as much as I can. Which reminds me get your H.V.A.C. unit checked out by the pro's...LOL....

Thank You for being the kind person you were to me and as I think back and evaluate my life as I get older and my O.C.D. kicks in, lol, I feel like I've grown to be a better person. I hope people view me that way I'm certainly trying and it's important to me that they do.

If you've gotten married please ask your husband to forgive me writing this and I hope he understands I have the best intentions in mind and nothing more. Well maybe forgiveness......God Bless,

Esther, When we were together I didn't deserve you.

I know how badly I hurt you. I wish I had a do over button. You're such a loving , strong , joyful, intelligent woman. You deserve love . You deserve happiness. I truly hope you've found that. I apologize for being in such a dark place and hurting you. I'll always love you.

I'm sorry that I can't write an apology without feeling angry at you just because I wish this was you apologizing instead of me :/ I still can't believe I had to run away from your love, for me to see things the right way.

Posted by Cassetta M.

I want to apologize to my best friend for being an ass to him. I love him and never want to make him feel less nor make him feel like anything he deals with in his personal is less than important to me. You’re my favorite person, anything of importance to you is of importance to me. I was angry and frustrated at a lot and you didn’t deserve to be talked to nor treated in such a manner.

Although I was initially upset at you for selfish reasons, I was a bit dramatic and acted very very unfriendly like. I know that we are better than this and that why I feel so remourseful. I really hate being angry, I become selfish and self centered, completely bullheaded.

I can’t promise you that I will not act like this again but I can promise you that I will do a better job at communicating my feelings.

Posted by 'A'

E, I am sorry for what I did to you the other day and betrayed your trust with my actions. I know what I did caused you a lot of pain in your life. I cannot stress enough that it was never intentional.

I know that I have lost your trust and maybe even your love, however I will never stop trusting and loving you until the day I die.

I can only hope that time will heal your wounds and maybe one day we can be friends again. What ever happens in your life I will always be there for you.
