To my Ex-Husband, I'm Sorry
An apology letter to an ex-husband, regardless of how things ended in your marriage, is a great start to getting closure. Below are two letters of apology from two ex-wives, for different reasons, who desperately want to move on.
Today, I would have been married to you for 22 years. I still remember, what I deem to be, the best day of my life.
It has been 15 years and I still have such regret, sadness and heartbreak for something I'll never, ever get back.
I have never loved anyone the way I loved you.
I reflect back on my choices, my behaviors and final decisions and wish I could change everything. After all these years, I think I finally know why I did the things I did.
However, I have never forgiven myself for the hurt, betrayal and destruction I caused you, your heart and the demise of our marriage.
The pain I still feel is good, because I feel I deserve it for my selfish and inexcusable actions. You NEVER EVER deserved what I did. You were truly the best thing that ever happened to me.
I know you moved on, as you should have.
I don't think I could ever trust someone or give the person another chance after what I did. I will never re-enter your life or attempt to make contact with you.
You're free or so I hope, of the pain of me, any memories of me or any past attachments.
My greatest hope is you are happy, that she makes you happy and you're living the best life you can.
I will always thank God for you, for the time I did have and the years we had together. You must know, everything that happened was entirely my fault.
I accept responsibility and I will take it to my grave.
Happy Anniversary, I'll celebrate mentally with thoughts of you. I'd love nothing more than to be with you again, to share a meal, conversation and walk.
I miss you terribly at times and will never get over my loss.
-My Black Heart
First of all, I am writing this in English, so that I can better express how I feel.
I would like to apologise for destroying our marriage and for not standing beside you when you were finding things difficult.
I am sorry for not believing you when you told me you were suffering from depression and not being there for you in the way that you hoped.
In our marriage we steadily grew apart, I wanted more from you than you could give and I am sorry for that.
I wish you every happiness, in whatever path you have chosen to take since our divorce.
I pray that your life is filled with love, wealth and prosperity and you have everything your heart desires. I wish for you an unending amount of joy, health, and happiness.
This letter is the last time I will speak to you as I now leave you to get on with my life.
All ties are cut between us.
You owe me nothing, -not money, not love, not compliments. I also forgive you.
Please go in peace and take good care of yourself.
