Posted by Rude Woman with Shy Kid at Strathcona Wilderness Center

To the woman and man cross-country skiing at the Strathcona Wilderness Center on Saturday January 15th 2022 around 1pm: I sincerely apologize for being snippy and rude to you.

I was mad at myself for my mistake on where we'd be allowed to walk and I had no right to take it out on you. I explained to my kid that I was in the wrong.

I wish we had run into you before we headed home so I could have apologized to you in person. I'm posting here with hope The Universe will help this message reach you. Please accept this as my sincere and heartfelt apology for my unacceptable behavior today. Thank you.

Shona I am so sorry for today. I did not know what you were going through today and I did not at all mean to add on to it. I should've been more considerate and thoughtful and just more smart. I shouldn't have threw the bag away. Let me take the bracelet back Shona and let me get you a better one. Don't worry if the returning thing works or not. I'll take care of it my love. I'll take care of you baby.

Hey Christian....This is Nick, I want to apologize for dropping your "prized possession" glass. It was very irresponsible of me and I am very sorry.

I feel like I haven't been there for you as much and that's on me. I strive to improve as a person everyday and that goes hand-in-hand with treating your friends with respect and watching out for them.

Last night I disrespected you by dropping the glass. Although accidents happen, many of them can usually be prevented. It is Wednesday today and I believe there is still time to turn this week around. Just thought a written apology would help enforce my sorrowful emotions for what is now a glass that you will never drink out of again, rest in piece, and may god be with you all.

Hey kennedy, I'm sorry for always canceling plans with you. You know I love you and I know I've been a sh*tty friend at times. I want to take the time to say I'm sorry because I'm not always right and I'm not always nice to you. I appreciate you more than you will ever know.

Caitlin, I'm really sorry for the fact that were always getting into fights over me saying something that hurts you. Writing this has made me realise how much of a b*tch I am!

I'm surprised that you could forgive me for all the other times! So anyways I'm really sorry that I told you that you should die, I have myself have had suicidal thoughts, (and I'm not saying you do idk if u do or don't) and I know what place that puts you in. Having told you that you should die was a joke, but I can see how it doesn't seem like a joke and how violent of me it was to say that. So Caitlin I'm really sorry for telling you that and if you don't want to forgive me now or at all, I can see why. I just hope that you read this. -Alex

I'm sorry for invalidating your feelings. I did not really mean to do it. I was just trying to help you out because a lot of people would rub you the wrong way. The means of it though was completely wrong and irresponsible for me.

I'm not really good at making it up and I'm not sure how to but I am trying.

I'm sorry if you really felt that way. I was the one who was being insensitive and I hope that even if you are mad, you would forgive me later on. I know that cracks can't be easily fixed but I hope I could at least make you feel better. I'll be better next time.

I want to say sorry to her. Sorry for not taking care of her. For feeling unworthy, for putting others before her. For prioritizing others happiness. For always feeling like the bad person. For forgiving too easily. For not being expressive. For keeping everything inside. For not getting to know her. For always being too nice. For never healing that little girl inside... Who just wants to feel loved. I'm sorry.

Posted by Jonas

Dear everyone, I apologize for all the things I’ve done to you, for all the fakes I tried selling, for all the bad things I posted. I will do my best to not redo these mistakes. And I hope you can forgive me.

Posted by Mackenzie

I'm sorry for hurting you Trex. I miss talking to you. I didn't intend for what I said to be taken that way AT ALL and I'd chop off my left hand (my best one) to go back and time and just not say that.

If I made you feel as if you can't tell me certain things because I don't care, I care a great amount. I love hearing about anything you have to say. Even if you repeated the same thing over to me 30x a day without change I'd still listen happily because I enjoy seeing you write whatever is on your mind and I love you.

Whenever you are hurt and upset by me it makes me want to vomit. Please forgive me -Mackenzie

To Springbokgirlie... This isn't how I wanted to do this, but here goes, it's been a long time since I last saw you and I wanted to apologise for what happened between us.

You didn't deserve it, nor did your family.

To this day it plays on my mind that I hurt someone that I truly loved, I didn't want it to happen, but unfortunately it happened. And I will have to live with that for the rest of my life.

I hope everything with you and your family is great. I hope the kids excel at everything they put there minds too. You are always on my mind, and I just wanted you to know that I will always love you. Sorry once again for everything. John

I am really sorry S., I deeply regret my behavior and action and want to make it right. Thank you for giving me another chance. I really really love you a-lot and miss you more than I can express.

You have always been my support and I am sorry to have let you down.

I hope you can forgive me someday and just know you are the best thing to ever happen to me. I don’t think anyone cares for me as much as you do or for that fact even fights with me :) Just kidding

You are the love of my life and my soulmate. So my love I am writing this letter to gain your trust over me and an acceptance of my apology though you can definitely take your time and completely understand your pain and I feel horrible for being the person behind all of it.

I will try my best to fix it because you are my best person and I love you with all my heart. I am sorry for the pain my actions have caused you and just know I am super proud and happy of you. You are the best partner anyone would be happy to get and I am happy I have you.

We have our misunderstandings but I want to go past them and make sure you know that I love you a-lot and I am really very sorry.

My darling, I'm sorry I could not love you the way you loved me, sorry I was so cold to you, sorry for pushing you away so many times, sorry for doubting your love for me.

Darling I'm sorry I couldn't trust you enough to completely give you my heart because I was scared of heartbreak what was I even thinking?

Why did it take me a long time to realise I loved you? I know it's late now to win you back but I hope you forgive me and love me once again.

Dearest Therese, I am so sorry I did not follow up with you about the job. But I am not sorry that I took care of my health. But I am sorry that I left you wondering, what my decision was. But, I am not sorry, that I took a break.

I am sorry to all my coworkers, who I left wondering, what happened to me as well, because everyone deserves closure, but sometimes things just need to end. I wish I had carried the lesson into future events. I hope you are beyond well, I know you are, and Ashley as well. I hope she is doing good.

A much needed apology to the prettiest Gemini in the world. I'm still hungover but fighting the keyboard to express how sorry I am. I done effed up.

If I was Bukowski I'd write you a poem, if I was Michelangelo I'd paint you a chapel. But my only talent is finding obscure websites on the internet.

I’m sorry BCW...It's been nearly three years since I cheated on you. I broke your heart.

Not a single day goes by where I don't feel guilty for hurting you.You were a kind person to me and I took advantage of you.

Although, we have both moved on from each other (I am married to the person I left you for) and (you are still with the girl I was always worried about) I still feel the need to apologize as every night I dream about how bad I hurt you.

Although I have no feelings for you anymore, the guilt of my actions rips me apart.

I hope that you know I am sorry for my wrong doings and I wish I could tell you face to face but I don't want the drama associated with that. I wish you the absolute best in life BCW.

To Darren... I don't know your last name. When I was younger I had someone I was friends with who spoke for me but without my knowledge or consent (I never expressed this to him either).

He went to you and said that neither of us liked you. And that we didn't want you around! I regret not going to right this absolute wrong. It was not true, not at all!

I truly hope that you were not horribly impacted by this, but if you were then I am sooo sorry. This doesn't make anything okay.

I hope to find you one day and make this right. I knew you in Taylorsville Utah. You were someone I actually did like, I should have been there for you and stood up for you. I really am so sorry.

This heartfelt apology goes out to a student I went to school with when I was growing up in Dearborn, MI by the name of Mark Grimm.

Mark was a good kid who unfortunately was born with a lame arm that left him open to relentless ridicule by the well-known "bullies" in the school who shall remain nameless as well.

The truth is that I would sometimes say hurtful things to Mark in an effort (dumb) to be cool an accepted by the a-hole bullies that sometimes went after me.

This was wrong I know now how stupid and hurtful this was to Mark and I wish with all my heart that I could go back in time and stop my foolish behavior, but I can't.

Forty years later it's my sincere wish that Mark has found peace & success in life and has a wonderful family and group of friends that don't judge him based on his outward appearance, but rather his character.

Mark, I pray to God that you would find it in your heart to forgive me, but I understand if you can't. May God's unfailing love help you through life's many troubles and strengthen you in the face of adversity.

I'm sorry Luke for being so negative all the time, for being so stupid.. I'm too childish but I’m so lucky to be with you, yet I'm so sorry for all those times I’ve been mad at you.

I don't mean to but you understand that I do have anger issues, and it's hard for me to control.

I really hope we can move past these arguments and all the negativity one day and be together, in person again! I promise that everything will be okay soon and much better than before.. I love you so much I really do. I just wanted to say sorry for all those times... I love you.

I know it has been 20+ years, but I still live with this guilt for hurting you and making your future relationships difficult.

I was wrong for not telling you the truth about my sexual history. I am truly sorry. Since our time together, I have done better.

I have been honest with all men about my past and learned the importance of transparency and honesty. I was always careful after you and proactive about my health. I know that doesn't change what I did to you, but I want you to know that I am sorry.

It wasn't fair to you or your now wife. I hope you were able to heal properly and trust others after me.

To my first true love, Katie: Years ago I made a mistake that will haunt me till the end of my days.

Twix... I'm sorry for being so blind and deaf to all the signs that she didnt give two sh*ts about me. I threw away your love for a trash human being and the MINUTE I GOT ANOTHER CHANCE TO CHANGE IT ALL I WAS SELFISH AND ONLY THOUGHT ABOUT ME AND NOW...

I can't even tell you all the things I should have. When I see you, I will. And then, I'll walk away.

I'll walk away before I show my true colors as the selfish piece of sh*t that I am. It's all I know how to do.

I've got no right to ask for your forgiveness, so when I see you again, I won't. I'll just spend the rest of eternity making sure you know how much you mean to me and everyone else that loves you just as much. I love you Twix. I always will. See you soon.

To Carl: I can't help but remember all the times we said we wouldn't miss each other, but what I would give to not miss you from across the world intead of this.

I don't deserve to talk about you let alone care enough to try to apologize, but I am. Much too late.

I should've kept in touch with you. I'd make damn sure you stuck around and saw that things could get better.

You gave me purpose in ways I can't get you to understand. You inspired me to get over my own stupidity. Not many people tried doing that.

You were gonna be a better Marine than I ever was without even trying. You were my A gunner and you had my back and I failed you. You deserved better. Hell you deserved my life. I'd trade it in a heartbeat if I could I swear.

We love you brother. Always have. My only hope now is that you can forgive me. Because God knows I can't.

To Jonah: You are strong as an ox and smart as a whip. You are a kind soul and probably the only friend I've never compalined about lol.

I remember the last time we saw each other. I should've told you that. I should've supported you and gave you an address or got yours to send you a letter about how proud we all were.

You were never alone, but the thought that you may have felt that way breaks my heart. I hope you're reading this right now. Over my shoulder (rude lol jk).

I can't promise I'll forgive myself, because I know I won't, but I promise to try. Because if I had the chance to say all this, I know you'd tell me everything was ok and that you weren't mad about it. That it was cool...

I'll never forget you buddy. I'm sorry. See you soon.

I'm sorry. I understand it was my fault and I shouldn't have done that. I regret ever doing that. I thought I could trust her with it. I'm not going to shift the blame on her because I get that it's my fault. I'm not gonna lie to you anymore so I'll just be honest.

Her and I aren't anything more than friends. I don't care if she has feelings for me or not because I, for sure, do not and have never felt the same for her.

You are nowhere close to being ugly so please don't be insecure about yourself. Again, I'm so sorry. And I understand if you prefer to leave me after this, I completely respect that. I regret ever trusting her, I'm sorry. If it makes you feel any better, I'll leave you alone from now on.
