I find it hard to forgive! I cant! I am trying. I cant forgive my inlaws. They have made me and my husband's life very hard and trying. They have been very vindictive. They were nice to our face and the minute we turn around they would stab us so hard in the back. they have gotten there sons against each other and me and my sister in law. It has been bad for years. So when our daughter was born we tried to make amends for our daughters sake. lasted for about 5 months and went down hill from there. We lived a block away and we hated it. I felt always on edge. Now we moved 30 miles and way thinking that would make it better for me and it hasn't. I just cant let go. I know It need to and move on. I ran and it got me no where.
I want to forgive them. I need to! They are like a drug for me!!! I am addicted to the drama. I think about them more then my OWN family and it makes me mad. I hold so much anger. I want to forgive but I don't want them in our lives. My husband feels more about it then me.
So here it goes. I forgive my in laws for the pain that they have caused me. I forgive them for betraying there own son. I forgive them. I have to let go. I forgive myself for letting this go on. Letting it consume me! It does consume me. I forgive myself for being part of the drama. I will try harder to forgive. I am so scared to have this not part of my life. It has consumed me for to long
Dear Gayla, For over eight years we shared a sisterhood from Christ. It was a blessing beyond my description. You had a way of ministering to me in my deepest heart and for that I am eternally thankful. We drifted and I said some very angry, hurtful things and I am in turmoil over those things. I am sorry. The bible says to forgive 70 X 7 and Christ is our essence. Please forgive me? You made me stand in the cold, I couldn't even go inside your home that I have visited for dinner so many times before. You shut the door on me. I know it was all about your pain that I caused. I am dealing with a death, the death of a beautiful friend. Please take me back as your beloved sister. Love, Missy
My dear baby girl,
I am sorry that I am not the person you want me to be or that I should be. I've been so horrible to you that I can barely stand myself. You deserve better. I am mean and selfish and hateful. I am sorry, so so sorry, please try to forgive me. I really am going to do better, to have better self-control, to love you more, to be more positive, to be less selfish. God, please give me the ability and strength and self-control to do right by this girl, and to stop being so mean and hateful and selfish. Please help me to cherish her, and love her, and care for her as I should. Please give me forgiveness and peace about this matter. Lord, above all, help me to pray to you every day about this. Don't let me be a millstone around her neck. Help me to love her as I should, and that she will have good memories.
I'd like to apologize to Mike-al, I am afraid we're never going to be good friends again. I do love him terribly.
I am sorry I deny my faith. I have a lot of built up anger. I am sorry I keep saying I am an atheist. That is not true I love and accept you as my lord and savior. I know you died for my sins. I have no right to deny my faith. I'm sorry Marcy
Michelle: I'm sorry I was rude when lynn was working with us. I was listening to her instead of doing my job I'm sorry I told you to shut up. I feel that was uncalled for and I'm sorry. Love Tammy
I'm sorry for the times I have denied my faith. I let my anger build up and that is my way of releasing it. I shouldn't deny you I'm sorry Michelle
Michelle: I'm sorry I was rude to you when Lynn was working with us.
I know you did not really like Lynn. I was desperate to finally find a friend.
It was wrong of me to join in with her and be so rude. I 'm sorry Rochelle
Dearest Family and Friends: Please forgive me for letting you down and letting myself down. This too shall pass. Thank you and God Bless,
Stardust seeks forgiveness from Scuba Baja Keith
Keith held a great love for me. I did not cheat on Keith and never would have but I accepted a phone number of an interested man and I kept it. I also spoke about men in my past, particularly the man I had encountered prior to Keith. I did these things knowing he adored me and knowing how much I needed him. I do not understand myself.
I sabotaged my relationship with Keith. He was my mate, my friend, the man I feel God intended me to be with. I miss him desperately and continue to mourn my loss.
Forgiveness from a man who has previously suffered from infidelities is a lot to ask but it is something I must feel.
Keith, if you ever view this posting please understand how deeply I regret hurting you. I still love you and you've got to forgive me. Please forgive me. Stardust aka Judy
I would like to forgive you who treated me so badly.
You did not raise your voice to me in anger, nor did you ever strike me. But there are many other ways to hurt a person.
I forgive you for not truly investing yourself in our relationship.
I forgive you for manipulating me and trying to exert power over me.
I forgive you for the lies you told to me.
I forgive you for not desiring me totally and lovingly.
I forgive you for the subtle insults and the ways in which you undervalued
I can forgive you for these things BUT I will never let you do these things
to me again. I value my self too much to let you abuse me like this. And I
know you will not change unless you can take a good hard cold honest look at yourself. I doubt you have the desire or fortitude to do that but I hope
that will change in the future.
I wish you personal growth and discovery but above all else enduring
happiness and joy.
To all the women who've been in my life:
I'm sorry, for being selfish, for being a jerk. I hurt you all in different ways I think. I just want, at this point to start over, to not be the way I have been. My narrowness, my jealousy, my shallowness, must all come to an end. I have been doing it wrong all my life, that's got to change... Dan
Long ago, but I am sorry
I'm sorry that I bothered you years ago. I didn't know that you were already dating M. at the time-- I had no bad feelings about her and would never have done anything to hurt her feelings. Although I was 20 at the time, I was confused,
stressed, and in a bad relationship that no one else should have been dragged into, even if it were only in my imagination. somehow with all the
craziness going on, I betrayed my own upbringing, morals, and ethics, and allowed a mild crush to become an annoyance to someone else. I barely
knew you but admired your intelligence and probably appearance too, though I no longer remember much about how you looked.
In the 15+ years since, life has gone in a much better direction -- and I'm the ethical, considerate person (also a deist, and happily so) who would never have brought trouble to your doorstep that way I did long ago. Very, very
To My Family and Friends,
I'm sorry I'm such a disappointment and you don't even know it. I'm sorry I've lied to you. I'm sorry I've ruined your lives with my deceptions. I'm sorry I got too caught up in myself to live up to the dreams and hopes you had for me. I'm sorry I drank, I'm sorry I lashed out, and I'm sorry I hid myself from you, the ones who care about me and can help me. I'm sorry I wasted your love in my web of self-obsession and deceit. Please forgive me. B. D. F.
You mean the world to me. I cannot envision living the rest of my life
without you in it. I sincerely hope you can find within yourself the
power to forgive me for my lapse in judgment, for jumping to
conclusion, for breaking my promises.
I am at a loss at this time as to how I could possibly repair the damage
that I have done. I don't want to make any promises simply because you
most likely cannot trust me anymore. My heart is aching just thinking
about the decision you might come up with once you've thought things
through. Please believe me when I say that I so deeply regret what I have done,
this anguish will stay with me forever.
I love you G.
I know you don't believe a word I say but I am going to say this anyways. Please forgive me for hurting you and for taking advantage of you. I never meant to hurt you, I wish I would have known at the time that you were so angry. We have never had a real conversation. Two years later we find out the truth and for so long we have been fighting to solve the "problem", only to be solving the wrong thing. I am still here now because I know this is not what you really want and I am going to stay and going to fight until we resolve your hard feelings. Too many people take the easy road and quit! I will not stand down even if I am no longer here. You don't know what you want because you are not yet ready to confront your own truths. You cannot continue to bury what you feel. It is only going to hurt you in the long run. Every one that is close to you has hurt you. I am sorry that I have also done the same. You must learn to forgive, especially yourself. Please let all of the anger go, please forgive me and talk to me. Tell me how I have hurt you. I love you and as long as I live, I will always be by your side when you need me. You don't realize this yet.
Dear Margie. After many many years I am writing you an apology. I am writing you this day begging forgiveness. I hope you can forgive me.
Lord, I have shed lots of tears and my heart would hurt inside. This incident happened a long time ago. Lord I pray your love and guidance as struggle. Help me with your love and mercy This hurt has been there a long time, And I am trying to understand Forgiveness. If this works ,I will understand That truly all things are possible with God. Thanks
Dear God, and those that have lost their lives in the Iraq War,
God, I need to ask your forgiveness for I have sinned big this and I feel so foolish, as well. You see, I was one of those American's that fell to my knees in fear, due to the events that took place, just after 9/11. I was glued to the television set every night. Yes God, I did forget to pray rightly to you or Lord, rather I begun to pray (in all honesty) that we'd "get the enemies" - the big, bad, terrifying and yes evil Bin Laden. Yes Lord, I became enthawed in front of that "tube" every night, and could barely breathe as I awaited news from those that were "fair and balanced," for the gun-slinging, bloodshed to begin, as our tanks roared into Baghdad. And with each night and day it was all I could think of. My president became my leader, the one I looked to for "hope" and "wisdom," as he "must be the chosen one" we heard and read about as kids and teenagers... I mean, the media was sending the message... churches were "backing it up." It had to be so... and of went out military, mightier that all - but alone. I was also for our president, like a faithful follower, I allowed him and his cabinet to lead me down the road of freedom, but as the months went I slowly begun to realize that it was our own being killed, night after night. And as the re-election debates began it was something in this leaders eyes, and the way he could not finish a sentence that made me ponder differently.
Yes Lord, it was during these debates that I finally awoke from this terrible nightmare I had been in. It was as if I had been brainwashed, placed in a trance. But I have found my back to you Lord, and I beg of you to please, please forgive me fore I forgot myself in this mad shuffle we call freedom down here. I'd also like to extend my deepest sympathy to you, oh lord, as it pains me to see my fellow American's act as they do, seething for violence, and not acting in a Christ-like manner, rather just the opposite. If it hurts me this mush, it must really hurt you, so for that I again as you to forgive me for my fellow Americans. I'll take their brunt, because I too was caught up in the madness of our leader whom I know now is just as evil, if not more then the Bin Ladens of the world. If you could forgive me, then maybe I can forgive myself because right now, I'm feeling really ashamed to be a "follower" of the "wrong flock" and fearing more for my lack of civil rights, god-given freedoms and liberties, then I do those that live across the ocean from me.
So with that, I ask that you forgive me lord, and while your at it - could you ask all of the men and women from America and other countries, that lost their lives fighting in Iraq to forgive me, and my fellow Americans, too?
Maybe if I had stopped and thought for just a moment before reacting so angrily, and giving too much empowerment to the one I thought was on your mission, I'd not be feeling so lousy right now. And the biggest forgiveness I need right now Lord, is for you to help me help others to see the wrong road we're taking here in America. Maybe if just one person in every state of our once wonderful united states reads this and feels the same way, each of us could spread the word. It's going to be hard, but I believe that once we forgive ourselves and admit we made a tremendous mistake, maybe then we can start anew and get back to the way our country once was - "liberty, and justice for all."
S.L. & D.L.-
I want to offer my sincerest deepest apologies for any tension, hurt or conflict I may have caused. My intent was never to hurt anyone. Unfortunately for all of us the situation has gotten way out of hand, and my heart and mind are telling me to resolve it. More than anything, our Lord is telling me and tells everyone in the Holy Bible that an angry heart is useless. Holding a grudge and carrying around this pain, anger and frustration is getting me no where, and is hurting our family. It is hard to forget the past, but I am more than willing to try. Please accept me for today and tomorrow, and even though it is difficult, put the past behind us. Life is too short for us not to forgive. You or I could die tomorrow and regret our behavior. Then we would ask ourselves; is it worth it? Was it really worth it to carry around that pain and anger? My answer is NO. Please let's move forward for the happiness of all around us, but more importantly for ourselves. May God Bless you and your family always. Even if you are not ready to forgive and/or forget, I will pray everyday for your safety and well being, and hopefully someday you will be able to tell me you accept my apology. -SLF
First God please forgive me of my sins, and help me to steer away from temptations that will lead me in the sinful nature we all possess.
Dearest Bernie, my husband, please forgive me of all my indiscretions. Particularly these that inflict you with the most pain. Forgive me for not always showing you the respect you deserve and loving you in a way that you can truly see.
To my sons, you are so very precious to me. Please forgive me for the things you do not understand. I love you unconditionally as I know you love me also.
To all the ones I've hurt, please understand and forgive that God does not make anyone of us perfect. He works to mold and shape us into what He wants for us but it sometimes takes us many times of trial and error to really see His path.
There are some I would like to share by name but can't just yet. For those of you that I have shared moments with, please forgive me for not being strong enough to resist the temptations and forgive me for any hurt that I may have cause you. God Bless!!!
Moma T, - I apologize that I cheated on you. You deserve better than that. I am sorry and it will never happen again. Somehow I will make it up to you. Please come back. bob
I need to forgive myself and let go of the anger I feel for my stepdaughter. She is only 14 and we don't even talk any more, we pass in the hall like strangers. My anger is really at my husband, her father, for not making her follow any rules and letting her stay away every weekend. I've directed all my anger at her and have been intent on making her life miserable, when I need to let go and realize her dad is'nt going to change. I'm raising a 12 year old boy in the same house and he has rules and chores. She doesnít. I havenít been able to separate the fact that she is just doing what she is allowed to do, as any teen would in this situation. Because there are no rules for her ,she just runs.I need to stop being angry at her ,when my husband is to blame. I've tried stepping up to the plate and taking over, but that creates anger, resentment, (your not my mom) and an unhealthy environment for everyone. I want to forgive her for hating me and myself for acting like a spoiled stubborn child. I feel I'm going straight to hell if I donít resolve this issue. Wicked stepmom
Luis, Iím sorry about what happened between us and our friendship. I wish we had left it at friendship and allowed it to grow as it would have done so, and wonderfully at that, Iím sure. I have apologized all that I can and I my words are sincere. I understand that you canít, for whatever reason/s, contact me again. And itís O.K. I wonít hold it against you. I will, however, wish you the best my heart can wish for you in everything that you do in this beautiful life. You are truly amazing. You are an Artist. You are the Writer of your story. Always do your best to make your story shine brilliantly so that when others read it they will feel inspired and blessed to have come across it. Use your integrity through your word and actions. Read that book I gave you, The Four Agreements, it resonates truth deep within that is hard to deny. Forgive me someday for the mistakes me made together. Forgive me someday for the mistakes I made all on my own. Have a beautiful life. Wake up each day and feel happy, no matter what your circumstances. Life is short and fragile and we must find the beauty in it even when things look bleak, and as you know, they will look bleak from time to time, but soon enough their bleakness will fade and after time you will find a feeling of strength come over you and you will know then that you are okay. And you will always be okay. You are an Artist. You are Amazing. Sincerely, Angie
I wish I could turn back time. It's taken me too long, way too long, to finally see how my behavior has affected others, and I wish so much that a close friend or family would have found a way to speak to me about how I was acting years ago! I see it now, but learned it the hard way. I've had a tough time letting go of everyday situations, relationships, work stress, etc., and spilled my guts to whoever was around. Who would want to be around that constantly? I've lashed out in anger to people, and they didn't deserve my frustrations to be pushed on them in that way. I'm sure that I've kept people from wanting to bring up certain normal topics to me, for fear I'd spend an hour telling every detail. I've annoyed others, and turned away perfectly good friends along the way. I'm sure I've been perceived as someone who can't "get over it", or "let it go". I'm disappointed of my past behavior, and am having a painful, eye-opening experience. Lord, I thank you for allowing me to see this now, and help me as I learn from my mistakes and stop feeling so guilty. I want to forgive myself, stop dwelling on how many relationships I've ruined, and focus on how to better myself and the future! I want to learn how to handle my problems in a healthier way without burning friendships, and start to see a positive change from this whole experience. It's got to get better. Alex
Dear Ann, I am so sorry that I hurt you. I know that we both did the best that we cold, and I regret the way my anger found its way to harsh and hurtful words. Please accept my apology for that, and for being so slow to understand that you and I are not meant for each other. I will always love you, and thank you so much for the gift you brought to me, for the opportunity to understand myself better, and to experience such deep love. I know that my words hurt you, even though you minimize their impact. Rather than saying that it was nothing, please give me a sign that you accept my sincere apology. Your forgiveness means so much to me. Please contact me someday, if only to let me know your forgiveness.
Love, from the bottom of my heart, Maureen
To my God, my beautiful wife, my children, my parents
I am the most horrible sinner. I am selfish, mean, hurtful, and a liar. Starting with my God. Please forgive me Lord for all those years of foolishness when I denied your existence to myself and even to others. What a fool. I thank and praise you for keeping after me and sending me signs. I love you God. I love you Jesus. To my Wife. I cheated on you very early in our marriage, I was infatuated with a woman at work, we had sex many times for a period of over a year. I thought I was in love with her, I was wrong, I love you so much and cannot bear the fact that I did this, I am so sorry. The affair stopped soon after I found out that we were going to have our first child and I left that job. You are the light of my life, the most wonderful, honest and truly good person I know. You are the mother of our children, our beautiful, darling children. I know would probably forgive me this, or maybe not. I have chosen not to tell you because I do not want to hurt you and destroy the family we have built. The thought of being without you and the kids keeps this silent. I have been tormented by this for years and do not know how to forgive myself. I am also sorry for the names I have called you and the horrible things I have said in anger when we have fought. I am sorry that some times our children have heard these things, or gotten in the middle of it. I am sorry to you, my three wonderful kids, you are my life and I love you so much. I know I have said I am sorry before, but I am now fully aware that it does not matter who is to blame for our fights, or who is right, it is just simply wrong to treat any person, especially the most important people in my life as I have treated you at times. To my Mom and Dad. How I must have hurt you in my life with the horrible fights we had when I was a teenager. I lied to you, and stole money from you for drugs. Now that I have children and realize the power of the love we have for them, I realize how my words must have devastated you. Thanks for sticking it out. I love you both. To my brother and sister, I am so sorry for putting you through the fights and anger that used to be in our house when I was a teenage delinquent. I am sorry for the fact that we played games when we were very young that were in hindsight sexually inappropriate. I love you both an am proud of what you have become, and of the families you have made. To my friends, that life as an adult has caused me to lose touch with, I think of you with love often. To Lisa, whom I had the affair with. You are a wonderful person who did not deserve to have gotten involved with a selfish liar like me, I hope you have attained the peace and happiness you deserve in the many years since we last parted. I wanted to share these horrible acts with some one. It may be the cowardly way of confessing my sins, but it is the way I have chosen. Thanks for listening. Please forgive me.
To Dougie on Clarence Avenue in Lakewood, OH
You and I were only about 11 or 12 years old; neighborhood kids in Lakewood Ohio. You were trying to play with me and I didn't want to play. You kind of taunted me, a little bit rowdy, and would not quit. You were a cute little blond boy, thin, with green eyes. I had just found out your father died recently, and in my mean heart (I was never a mean person) the only way I could get you to quit and leave me alone was what I said, "I am GLAD your father died!" Well I am in my late 50's; a mother, grandmother, nurse, and still have my dad who is going to be 90 this year. He is a good man and still drives his car. He looks after my mother who has early Alzheimer's. After I was an adult I realized and have felt so terrible ever since, that it was the most horrible thing to say to you. You liked me. You were just trying to play or get my attention. I am sorry. When I said it so meanly to you, I remember how your eyes changed. They quit laughing and you looked back so suddenly and seriously. You did go away. You did leave me alone, then. I am so sorry. I am going to my grave with regret that I could have been so selfish and mean. I have prayed that God will clear that from your heart. Even that young, a person does know better. I wish I could take it back. I am so very very sorry, Dougie. I am sorry. You did not deserve that. I know you will never in a million years read this, but it had to be said outward to the universe....Linda D.
Even though we both have openly asked your forgiveness and you have refused it. I again, humbly ask for you to forgive us. I was very busy and did not have a chance to openly discuss the selling of the tickets to L and for some reason at the moment when you asked, he did not work out in his mind the logistics of selling the tickets. We humbly ask you again to forgive us as this was a mistake of judgment. I did not lie, but I did not have a chance to tell L my prior commitment to your wife about the tickets. Please find it in your heart to forgive me
To my friend, Peace!
I'm so sorry for being not true to you. i know that ever since you have been so honest and true to me and i wasn't. and i can't blame you to get angry for finding out the truth. but this time, i'm really being honest...let's start again, on a more honest and deeper ground. i know what i did in the past will never be erased but it could be filled with love and honesty. your true friend
Paolo - I had to say that I have many mistakes and short comings sorry for my unnecessary act. I completely lost in that time I don't no what to do because I am over familiar to you. paolo forgive me. I am older thatn so I must be mature enough to think what I will say and do. I wish that you could read my letter. I don't know how to say good bye but thank you for everything you share to me.
My Dearest Anthony: I don't know what tomorrow or the next day will bring. But I do know that if you are no longer a part of my life I am terrified of not knowing how I will ever forgive myself. You have taught me so much in the past year about how to learn, live, love and trust. Yet today I am faced with starting my life over without you. I cannot yet fathom it. I am sorry from the depths of my soul and only hope that within yourself you can find a way to forgive me. LLP
I have given you three years of my life and you have betrayed me. You hurt me more than any words can describe. You have crushed my heart and broke it into a thousand pieces and left it for me to put back together. You have been unfaithful to me though I gave you my full heart and my full trust. You have hurt me so deeply that the pain in my heart is present in my eyes. There are times when I don't know if I can go on.
I want you to know that I forgive you because we must choose to forgive in spite of our feelings. The Bible says that even though God is grieved and angered by our sin, He chooses to forgive (Eph. 4:32). And we must do the same with each other. Regardless of our feelings, we must choose to forgive whatever may have been said or done to offend us. What He desires is that we forgive sins committed against us the way He forgives our much greater sins against Him.
Please know that I will always Love You. Tina
I want to ask forgiveness from my mother law, and I do not really know why she hates me so much-but I know it has to do something with my husband-I want her to forgive me for whatever it is, I can't ask for forgiveness for things he lied about re: me-that would not make sense, but I do ask for forgiveness for being harsh, protective, angry, insecure, judging and for my personal flaws which also include that I have been married before-If I had the choice, I would have only married her son, and had HER grandchildren and been family with them. I love her. I love her son, my husband-and the rest of the family. I have a past that scares me to love any one. I have virtually no family-It is one thing I want and need. So do my children. I ask her to forgive me, for My husbands, ex-wife, tricking me into talking to her about our problems, I have tried to fix everything the ex wife caused, and protect my husband from the effects-but now he is gone, I a m alone, I am pregnant with multiples, I went into premature labor - alone, my husband didn't show up even tho he was told. I almost called her, my mothernlaw, but I could not deal with more rejection again. It hurts so badly. WHY cant she see God wants her to forgive me, for what ever wrongs she thinks I did, or sees, that I don't-I dont even mind a confrontation if it is a positive step. She told my husband that since i didn't have a mom she would be my mom too. PLEASE forgive me mom-n law for not telling you how much that meant to me!! It meant soo much! Now I have no one. What happened to Forgiveness teachings in your church? Don't they teach you to forgive? Why do you feel I am so horrible? I didn't cause RM problems, he had problems before me-I just thought that working through them would help-maybe i was wrong-I didn't mean to be. PLEASE FORGIVE ME, God allow her to forgive me, I need family, please work in her heart and constantly work in mine, allowing me to forgive her for allthe hurts and words. AMEm
I'm sorry I didn't understand, that maybe I continue not to understand.
I'm sorry that I couldn't adjust to my strong sure friend becoming weak and
scared and seemingly full of excuses. I'm sorry I can't seem to see past my own pain at losing a friend. I'm sorry we are not in contact any more. I'm sorry that I have no idea how to fix any of this. I'm sorry you are hurting. I am sorry I am hurting. I am sorry. TBird
Please forgive me for not forgiving you, i couldn't do it at first you hurt me so much .over time i've been able to forgive but i can never forget, it's impossible that doesn't mean i don't love you i always will and always have we were always meant to be together ,but love means pain and growth and learning the pain is still with me and always will be with my earthly body when i die it will go but my love for you will always exist and for my children , i can't say these things to you, words won't be enough. like jeff buckley sung....'i love you....but I'm afraid to love you.' Forgive me love me and know i love you. Colin

I am so sorry that I was not strong in the right ways, and that I was not spiritually or emotionally ready for you. Please forgive me for the way I reacted to things, and for my inability to let go of all of my fears and hurt from the past. I admire your character and the fact that you continued to try to love me no matter what. I have learned so much from you, and although I cannot make it up to you right now, I will be making it up to you on an energy level as I learn to give the quality of love to someone, that you gave to me. I have always loved you, liked you, respected you, admired you and looked up to you. I am so sorry that in the end you did not believe that because of the terrible things I said to you out of anger. I was so frustrated because you were the one I was waiting for and I couldn't control what was happening and I felt like I was watching my dream slip away. I loved you so much and I was scared I didn't deserve you--these emotions were driving a lot of my behavior. I was so scared to lose you and now I have anyways. I want to tell you this in person but I'm scared you would reject me and that you don't need or love me anymore. I didn't want you to go that day. It is my greatest wish that I could undo the hurtful parts of our relationship, and restore us to the place on the floor where we me, and when our love was pure spirit, beauty and natural love. I didn't want you to stay if deep in your heart you really wanted to go. I have felt for months that you've wanted to go, and I'm sorry for hanging on. I hope that one day you can sincerely forgive me for my mistakes. Please know that I will always love and appreciate you, and that you'll always have a place in my heart. God Bless you. You were my Angel.
I need to be forgiven for not being strong enough to forgive my teenage daughter when she was being a teen age daughter and pushing me beyond my limits. I broke and sent her away out of fear that I would do her harm. She did things and said things that broke my heart, and I could not find the way to forgiveness through my anger and fear. Our relationship is estranged at best, and I miss her terribly.
I need forgiveness for not being a better parent. I just didn't know that a child could break you heart in a way that no one else could ever do.
To my daughter, please forgive me. I love you.
i'll surely be sent to the deepest depths of hell. i am only 20 and i am the guiltiest feeling person in the world. i've stolen from every one i know. money. my mother. i've treated her so so badly. calling her names. stealing her money.. even her bank card. i've cheated on every boyfriend i've ever had. all i care about is them caring for me. i'll never live all this down. guilty
I'm sorry for the anger and resentment I carried and express throughout our marriage. Rather than lifting you up, I brought you down. I'm sorry for all the mistakes in our relationship that I made, in hurt, anger, jealousy, resentment, revenge and sadness. All these things I did that seem to have destroyed our marriage. I pray I can be given another chance to be your wife and make up to you. I pray we can reconcile, please forgive me. Remember the love we have and know that I am working on myself and trying to let go. A.S.
LAP...those are your initials. If you recognize them know that I want to ask for forgiveness for having a sexual relationship with you which later on you and I both regretted. Even though you have never talked about it,I regret it and I apologize that it happened. I now know that you were uncomfortable with what happened. It also went against your beliefs . I have forgiven myself; I hope you can forgive me. sincerely Jose.
I need to apologize to my son for having him go through and see me go through the effects of drug use. Although I don't 'look' strung out or is always out in the streets, I truly believes he knows now and I want to say I'm sorry. I'm sorry for having him around it when he was little baby and neglecting him at times because of it. He is such a loving person who doesn't have a bad bone in him and loves me. I'm sorry from mom. Marcia
Hello, my name is Jessica, I really want to send my apology to my ex-boyfriend James. James, I love you dearly, and I miss you more then words can describe. I am really sorry for everything that I put you through. I really don't want to throw away a four and a half year relationship? But I guess we will figure it out when we will talk next week. I love you, baby!
I forgive myself for being so full of fear, doubts and insecurities that I have, at times, slipped away into alcoholic oblivion completely neglecting my loved ones, myself and the work that i believe my Creator has put me here to do. I forgive my government/the media for seemingly infusing the American people with trigger fingered fear. And I pray to God for the ability to forgive those who would and who have taken the lives of so many beautiful people. Hate is Love turned inside out and Fear is Love's polar opposite. Here is to The Love Revolution. Thank you Michael Moore. Steve P.
I cheated on my
wonderful wife. I love her more than anything, and I did not think of the
consequences. She does not know, and I don't want to tell her. I know she
would forgive me, but I also know it would hurt her
Dear Jen, It has been over 2 years since I have seen you but I think about what happened everyday. I am sorry for betraying your trust when you gave it to me. I was confused before and was very immature. Since then I have changed a lot and although you might never see it, I do believe that I have. I look back on the things I did to you and to our relationship in shame. I cheated on you. I can say it because its something that I did and I have fessed up to it. Our common friends know about it and the one who I am in love with now knows as well. I don't want you to think that since we are miles apart and time has gone by that what I did was forgotten. I am sure you haven't, but I hope one day I will be given the chance to be forgiven. You were the one who I honestly thought I would spend the rest of my life with and then I shattered it. I am sorry. I know you will take no comfort in knowing that by hurting you I have changed back into the person you asked me to be a long time ago. I hop! e one day I will see you again so I can prove it to you. Larry
Dear young Black woman,
know your name, but I owe you an apology. I was 19, bald, angry, lesbian
feminist and (I thought) anti-racist (though white). You were promoting
your church on the
I am sorry that i searched the internet to find out about my ex-partner. at the time i just thought i wanted to find out how she was doing and that she was okay, but i found a university assignment of hers and it really felt like snooping. i am extremely sorry about this intrusion because i am so sorry about how i hurt her when we were together. i loved her so much, and i took advantage of her, and i know it caused a lot of damage. and i will always care about her and be sorry for what i did. be blessed, MB. lynda
I am in need of your forgiveness for the things I have done. I am an ever changing man, trying to make himself better because of your love. I will be taking one day at a time. One step forward in the dark, always looking to the past for some light of guidance. Using past mistakes as a road map to finding happiness, hoping that one day my love will bring you back to me. With all that Love that I have - Your friend, Josh.
God knows how sorry I am for making such a mistake in hurting you. But I am sorry. I know I've broken your heart, but if you are willing, please give me the chance to help me mend it. I cannot take back the past, but I can do better in the future. Please forgive me. I cannot live without you. I need you so much. I know I should have thought about this before, but I didn't and I'm sorry. With all of my heart I am sorry. I will do anything and everything it takes for your forgiveness. Please. Please believe me. I really do love you. Love, Cherie
Please forgive me for upsetting you. I never intended to forgive you. You make my days brighter and you are light up my life. Marjorie
When we first met, I had the courage to introduce myself to a very beautiful woman whom I thought could be the missing light in my heart. My days and evenings were filled with the thoughts and dreams of your presence, and I thanked God for the privilege of knowing your name and being up close to your wondeful smile. Alas, my heart broke when I accidentally found out about you and a "special" person in your life. Since then, you had noticed I had been avoiding you and my words, even my hellos, were silenced without explanations. How can I be wrong about how I feel about you when all this time, crossing paths with you should have not happened. I chose silence and eventually distanced myself. For this, I ask for your understanding. For being an interruption to your life filled with happiness, I ask for your forgiveness. I gained a heart when I met you, Anna, but most importantly, I hope my sincere apology will be enough to strive for your friendship.
I am sorry for what i did to hurt my family. I truly let them down. I know that they will be forever angry with me. I cant blame them. I hope in time they can forgive me, and that i can forgive myself as well.
I am sorry from the bottom of my heart for hurting you Marc. I haven't loved anyone like I have loved you. I took for granted the love that you so freely gave. All you wanted in return was time spent with me and I played this terrible game. Please forgive me for not appreciating you. I would do anything to have you back in my life. I promise I will no longer cater to my ex-husbands hurting emotions. I divorced him for many reasons, one being that I don't love him anymore. He hurt me so many times in words and in actions, yet I felt so obligated, still after the divorce to be there while he was hurting. Please forgive me. I need you oin my life. I just can't imagine it without you in it. Come back...please. I love you, I love you, I love you. Joyce
My g/f lied to me too many times. I don't want to say what she did, because then i would be getting whoever that is gonna read this involved. All that i want to say is that i forgive her. thanx..... Wil S.
I am sorry
for lying and cheating on the girl that gave me her full heart with full
trust, a tender and precious gift whose value I did not recognize. I am sorry
that I slept with prostitutes at risk of getting diseases that may have
damaged her health and put her life in danger. I am sorry that I tried to
cover up my lies and deceptions because I was too afraid to face up to the consequesnces. I am sorry for the pain I have caused. I
am sorry for manipulating the situation in order to gain control. My fear was
that I would be deserted. That I would be abandoned if I shared my truth. Now
I am on an island. Alone. May someone find my message in a bottle.
The bottle being me. I desire to shine in the truth once again. I am so so sorry.
I lied to my ex boyfriend and I really did not think before I did it. He broke up with me but he really did not want to. I told him I am so sorry but he is still very mad. I know he needs time to heal but I can't really even talk to him because his parents said we need to wait for awhile. I am so miserable and do't know what to do. I want to be with him and take back my lie. What should i do?
I made a
terrible mistake on leaving my 19 yr. old immature daughter in NY state while
her father and I moved to
I apologize for stringing her along for 6 years. Not telling the truth ignoring her when she was loving to me. Staying out all night and never calling like I should. For picking fights with her and not fighting fair. For having other women call my cell phone and page me whenever. For taking her life and toying with it and no longer treating her to anything. For being angry at her and jealous of her at the same time. For leaving her and miving out of our home and not calling her when she was alone. For disregarding her feelings and ignoring the fact that she went to church therapy and read information to help us on every level. I apologize for hurting her so deeply that the pain in her eyes if ever present no matter how she tries to hide it. For times when she wanted my help and i knew it and i procrastinated and stayed away on purpose. For critizing her family friends and co-workers. For saying mean and hurtful things to get her angry. Never giving her a straight answer no matter how much she begged. For being cold and uncaring and keeping secrets. For the affair with Reina and never being able to get over the resentment I felt for her finding out. For taking trips with friends and excluding her because i knew she really wanted to be there. For not being able to step up to the plate and be the man she trusted me to be. For wasting 6 years of her life and knowing that as smart and good looking that she is she would have found someone better than me. For breaking up with her over a question she asked me and telling her I was seeing someone else because I wanted to hurt her and make he cry. I hope she will forgive me and accept my apology. I feared intimacy and closeness and feared she would leave me so I sabotaged every attempt she made to have a normal and regular life with me. I know it will all come back to me.
I cheated on my husband. We've had problems....I got frustrated. I feel horrible about it. I just want forgiveness. I am so sorry. I am so sad. We have been married for almost 15 years. I got bored with our relationship too, but excuses don't mean a thing. What I did was wrong. I need to be forgiven. I asked God for forgiveness (yet, again) and I'm sure he's forgiven me...I need to forgive myself. Thank heavens my husband didn't find out about the infidelity. I just want to bury myself and cry.
I want to apologize to my ex-husband for never saying I am sorry. I always blamed our living arrangements, financial, sex life on him and never felt that I had a part in it. If he made me angry about something I would not speak to him for days, I apologize for that. I would not be intimate with him for weeks, months at a time because I was still holding grudges, I apologize for that too. I felt misunderstood a lot of times but my actions still were wrong. I wish I could change things but I can't. I just want to say that our failed marriage was part of my fault too and I apologize for that. Sad thing is that I love my ex-husband not in a lustful way but as a person. I am glad that he has remarried. He always apologized to me but I did not believe it was sincere so I did not receive it. I am doing this because I would like to remarry and I know forgiveness and reconciliation is part of marriage and I do not want to bring any negative baggage to a new marriage and I am seeking out ways so I can learn how not to hold grudges. I forgive my ex-husband, myself and God. L. S
to my beuatiful alessandra i am really sorry alessandra
I am asking for forgiveness for hurting someone because of thoughts of infidelity.
have been wondering about forgiveness. I want to apologize to everyone I have
hurt or harmed. I know I have done some pretty terrible things. Thank You God
for helping me find this web site! It feels great to get this off my chest;
it is like a huge weight being taken off of me! I am so sorry to all the
people I have made fun of, lied to, talked about behind their backs. I know
how much it would hurt if someone did that to me and I am sorry. Please
forgive me~!!! I love you guys!!! Kristen
I've been facing a dilemma. Should I confront people that I have ridiculed--
but behind their back? I asked God for a sign, and I think I got it. So I
would like to apologize, and I know that because I am human, I will leave a
lot of names out. If I have sinned you in any way, I
am sorry and humbly ask your forgiveness. For everyone I have ever lied to, I
regret it. For everyone I have ever made fun of-whether you knew it or not- I realized how cruel that is. I especially want to
extend my apologies to Don Farmer, Julie Skadsem,
Britney Gore (I am sooo sorry I lied to you about
ASFA!!!), Mrs. Knott, cheerleaders, Ms. Wicks, Chris, my parents, and Ryan
from West Blvd. I am so thankful for a God that gives infinite
I want to say how very sorry i am to my family, but especially to my two precious sons, Cody, and Alex, for being mentally ill with this horrible bipolar disorder. I am so sorry for making their lives so hard from all my selfish suicide attempts, all my mixed episodes filled with so much mental and verbal abuse, and sometimes neglect because of deep deep depression. I am so so very sorry for passing this disorder on to my son Alex. I am just so sorry, please, please, forgive me for being sick, my heart hurts so bad. I don't want to hurt my babies anymore. Melinda

I had just got back together with my girlfriend. We had just gotten in our frist fight. I love her so much, and argued about something stupid. I miss her so much, and I hope she forgives me... Kevin
I need to
apologize for the terrible thing I have done. I stole a great deal of
money and have caused my husband and children and parents much pain. I
am having a hard time apologizing to the people who I stole the money from, my shame is so great. I can never repay it
and it will always hang over me like a stone.
i am sorry for causing pain to various partners in my life
i want to apologize to
you thomas, i know you
might never read this but it needs to be said. you
had told me not to tell anybody about what you were going to do, but i couldn't cope with it. i said to debbie because
she is my best friend and i knew i could trust her. it turns out
you were lying all along but now looking back i see
telling mrs.connor wasn't the right thing to do.
Frank - I am so sorry for hurting your tender heart. You must know that I love you more than I can ever express and I am both embarrassed and ashamed that I don't always treat you with the gentleness you deserve. Please forgive me. Love, Wil
for not listening to myself. Untold damage is done all the time when I
ignore my inner voice which never fails to guide and direct. I am sorry
that at some level I hate myself. The drive for perfectionism in all
things leaves me tired and out to dry.
I want to apologize to the most amazing girl in the world. I am completely and totally in love with her and I hurt her. Worst of all I lied to her and betrayed her trust. I don't expect her to ever forgive me and that is really hard to deal with. I just want her to know how sorry I am for everything that has happened and that I will always love her. I pray that someday she will find a way to forgive me. I also want her to know that I am still the same person she fell in love with and I would do anything in the world to get her back. Sweetie I am sorry from the bottom of my heart. Please forgive me. I love you monkey. Steve

I take full
responsibility for all the pain and suffering that
I want to apologize to my EX wife and kids. I was not happy
in our marriage and the last two years of our marriage I found life to be a
chore. Nothing fun and no rewards, Just work work
work. I did not plan the course
I am on but when I filed for divorce I should of been kicked in the
teeth to get my attention. I blame my EX for not wanting to change and for
not being there for me. I still feel in my heart that she has some
blame to pull for our divorce but I am the one that filed. She did not
think I would go thru with it. I did. She refused to take me back
a few months later when I asked her if we could make another go of it.
So I married someone else. That was 18 months ago. We are expecting a baby
this October. My children hate me and won't talk to me except on rare
occasions. They do not like my wife. They do not want to claim
this baby. They are ashamed of me. I am ashamed of myself but
what can I do about it now. I don't sleep well with all of
the guilt feel!
is eating me up inside. My daughter who is 23 yrs has not talked to me
in over 1 year. She and I always used to be so close. I don't
know what I've done. She told me to never contact her. We took a
I would like to apologize for all the mean things I've done this week to all the people I know & don't like. I'd like to say I'm sorry for being a bitch when it was totally unnecessary. Katie-Kates
So much for second chances... I hurt a girl very dear to my heart
because I didn't understand forgiveness. I love Rebecca more than life
itself and she has showed me a happiness in life I
never knew possible. She took part in some innocent, but damaging,
activities when she was younger and I judged her like no one should judge
Love my Life,
Please forgive me for my gross ingratitude, greed and sloth. I will try to be thankful and useful. Forgive me of my foolishness and my hatred. I will try to overcome my sins. Help me to help others and sustain me until i can manage to do that. dave
miss I am
really sorry for I have hurt you

All I wanted to do was show you how nice and tender I could be. Please
forgive me. I know sometimes I might makes mistakes.
But I come to you asking you, please forgive me. I just want you to know how
I feel about you. So I come to you asking Please
I am so sorry that I upset you, that I made you so angry and so desperate that you left that message for me. MMT, please forgive me and phone or write to me like you used to. Greg
