I'm Sorry Patrick

I am sorry. I don't want you to think that I'm saying those words lightly. For you they may be cheap words but I really mean them. I am so sorry.


I know that what I did was wrong and I know that it hurt you deeply. I'm not sure what I was thinking, but I do know that I never wanted to hurt you.

I wish I could take it back, but I can't. All I can do is try to show you how much I regret what I've done and ask for your forgiveness.

I shouldn't have lied like that. The truth is I never had any money and felt bad about letting you down. I lied to you. There was no good reason for me to lie to you like that.

I could try to excuse it, but that won't change what I did. I lied.

I was wrong.

I betrayed your trust that you put into me. And I'm sorry. I'm sorry for lying to you. I'm sorry for hurting you. I'm sorry for betraying you.

What I did was absolutely wrong, and I wouldn't blame you if you didn't trust me again for a long time, if ever. I understand.

I shouldn't have lied to you. I was wrong, and I am sorry.

I thought I could tell you face to face about me not having any money but I was never given that chance.

I hope you can forgive me for lying to you, but I understand if you can't. For what it's worth I feel terrible. You don't deserve to be lied to like that.

I would hate it if you lied to me, so I should treat you the same way; I shouldn't lie to you. I'm sorry that I did.

Honesty really is the best policy in love and life.
by: M.L.

If you're really sincere about this, don't punish yourself, learn from it.

I've been there. I used to lie all the time about my insecurities. I lied to family, friends and those that I loved because I felt that external shortcomings reflected poorly on me as a person.

After causing much hurt, I realized that what was making me look bad was in fact the lies and not anything that I used as an excuse for lying.

What made me a lesser person was my inability to tell the truth when I felt that certain things in my life weren't what I wanted them to be or what I thought others expected of me.

One person gave me a chance when I came clean and that changed things for me. I was able to see that my telling the truth and my willingness to change, which I promised myself I would do, are the only things that really matter.

It's the only way to be sure that you are loved and appreciated for who you are and that you are in an honest relationship.

God bless.

Mika
