My Apology Letter to a Very Special Friend

by Stewart
(UK)

To my dear friend who I hurt terribly and miss so badly... I just want to say I'm sincerely sorry for putting you through my overdose.


I know I made it seem like your fault, but it was never your fault, I was lying to myself and it was easier to blame you than to realise that.

I can’t believe I did that -- after the overdose everything just fell apart, we argued and argued and argued.

I know I’m probably the last person you want to hear from, but please hear me out. I don't know where to start so I’ll start with this; I’m really upset that our friendship is gone and it's made me miserable for the past couple of months.

Every time we fought it hurt me more, and now we’re not even talking anymore, let alone friends. I'm really struggling without you now, we used to be best friends and you mean a lot to me, more than you know.

I hate fighting, especially with you. My mistake ruined our friendship and I don't know how to make things right between us. Knowing that I did this to my best friend kills me. I don't know what I was thinking and I hate myself for it.

Our friendship is too valuable to me to end over this. To find another friend like you would be impossible, you’re caring, patient, funny... I can go on and on, and it doesn't feel right without you anymore.

I didn't mean for things to be like this and wish I could take everything back to when we were close friends, I know I can't but I can show you that this will never happen again and I'm still the guy you trusted and thought of as your best friend.

I keep apologising because I’ve been completely in the wrong to be so inconsiderate and act like I have, I wasn't the friend I should have been but I don't want to lose you because I think you're worth holding on to, I don't know why, but whenever I had a bad day, or week you always made me feel better, you were one of the few who could do that.

I'm honestly heartbroken things are like this, I don't want my mistake to ruin our friendship and it would mean so much to me if you could give me a second chance.

You genuinely mean the world to me and I can't believe how much I miss you. I know you find it hard to trust and I’ve made it even harder for you to trust me and it'll take time for you to feel ready to talk.

I'm ready to wait until you can talk to me. A lot of people walk in and out of my life but you're one of the few I ever really wanted to stay, and until I make things right with you, you're going to be constantly on my mind.

I really do miss you so much and I don’t want to lose you. I made a mistake, and I really regret it. I don't think it's worth ending our friendship over though, I hope you think that too.

I haven’t changed, I know I seem like I have but I really haven’t. You did see something in me and I hope I get the chance to show you that it is still here and prove to you I’m still someone you can trust.

I’ve been a terrible friend for the last few months, but I think I was a good friend before, couldn’t we try and go back to that?

This wasn’t easy for me to write, and I hope this letter helps show you just how I feel, how much you mean to me and how sorry I am. Whatever you decide I'll always treasure our friendship and the good times we had. We went through a lot together, and you’re one of the few people I trust. You’re very special to me; I’d go through hell for you. I hope you know that.

Please accept this apology and I hope you can forgive me; I can’t help believing everything will turn out okay, because I find it hard to think of my life without you in it anymore, and I’ll always be there for you. Please text or call me if you decide you can give me a chance.

Thank you for being my friend.

Wishing you well and waiting for your reply,
Stewart

Perfect apology letter
by: joanah

I really love this letter. Please allow me to use some of the sentences for my best friend :)

I did this but my friend still isn't willing to be mates with me .. I don't know what else to do and the tension between us is getting worse day by day.

Thank you!
by: Anonymous

I had argued with my best friends that I had known since birth and I didn't even know what to do until I had read your letter. For months I had put her as the fault, but know I understand that I was in the wrong and that I shouldn't have done that. Thanks!

Feeling bad without him
by: Anonymous

Hi,I m writing this note because I'm suffering from sadness and pain without my friend his name is Irfan.

We used to talk and chat daily via msgs via calls.Last Friday I had a quarrel with him, I shouted on him in front of others which hurt him a lot and he felt insulted.

Though I apologized for my mistake and for my bad behavior, things have changed. Now he is ignoring me and today I'm waiting to see his msgs and calls on my phone. But now calls and msgs have gone to zero from his end.

I think my friendship and love ended from his end but I will always love him forever.

Sorry
by: Anonymous

This helped me write a letter to my friend who I lost due to speaking without thinking first. It might not be enough to fix everything. I just don't know. It took several hours of thinking about what to put but I did it. I'm going to slip it into their locker at school.

I hope it works.

I hope it would work

I got inspired by this letter and I wrote one to my best friend, John, who's been ignoring me for the past year. I really hope everything will work out between the both of us. Wish me luck!

sorry

Sorry is a small word for the big mistake I have made. But believe me the price of my actions, I have heavily paid, without you. Every second without you is like a dagger in my heart.

I have a friend and his name is Oscar. I feel so bad that I hurt him yesterday and he felt bad that he ended up saying "I'm sorry I won't ever disturb you again," and that hurt me very much since yesterday evening he has not being replying me till today. I'm apologising to him cause I value our friendship and I do not want him to walk out of my life... So I hope he forgives me. Cause he means the world to me.

I miss you my friend....

Thank you
by: Linus

This is a really nice letter. I had a fight with a very, very special friend of mine a few days ago and I'm going crazy trying to figure out what to do. It was all my fault.

I was feeling taken for granted, and it's been that way a while, but I know my friend is going through a lot right now. I should have been more thoughtful beforehand, but I was just feeling so angry, and I said a bunch of stuff I shouldn't have said. Not so much that I was really mean or anything, just critical and I should have said what I said another way.

My friend accepted my apology and we're talking again, basically, but I know I have to watch myself, I'm on thin ice... I just don't want to lose my friend. This letter helped me think of some things I'd like to say.

Love
by: Nadeem

My friend does not want to talk to me and I miss her so much. Hopefully my heartfelt apology will set things straight.

How
by: Anonymous

You have always been my favorite you know that. But why do you make me struggle so hard when I try so hard at times. I want you to show me how much you care once in awhile. And not just in that way. Show me in a way I can do well and not struggle so bad and still be there for you too.

A good friend
by: Oluwatobiloba

I wish you guys would get back together soon because a good friend is very hard to find.

Touching letter
by: Anonymous

It's a really good letter but as long as you don't copy and paste the thing whole you should be good. An apology should come from the heart so copying and pasting wouldn't really be coming from you're heart. Lovely letter btw

I'm sorry
by: Pooja Khurana

Best of luck. I truly hope you and your best friend come back together--AND REALLY SOON! I actually just went through this with my best friend, and there were so many things in your letter that were echoing how I feel about my best friend and CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT HIM!

Goodluck
by: Anonymous

Your best friend is lucky to have someone like you. It's rare to have someone who does this for their best friend. I hope she forgives you. We all make mistakes. I did too... just this month, December. What's done is done, so we just have to accept it. Everything will be okay. Time will help. Goodluck with your friendship!

Great apology
by: Anonymous

The apology was actually quite good but one of my friends sent this to myself and others and she said she wrote it!!! Otherwise cool apology.

Not great...
by: Anonymous

My friend sent this to me I automatically realized she copied and pasted it because it was broad and was not specific. Do not send this to a smart friend who can figure this out! Otherwise it is okay...
