An Apology From A Woman To Her Ex-Husband


I’m sorry things didn’t work out the way we planned. I’m sorry I could never be good in the ways you needed me to be. I’m sorry I got caught up in my life and myself and forgot to care for you in the ways you needed to feel cared for and loved.

I’m sorry for all the drunken nights and pitiful days, and broken promises and unspoken expectations and unresolved frustrations.

I’m sorry I didn’t fight for what I needed to be happy. That I bottle up all of my disappointments and let them self-destruct.

I’m sorry I’m a mess and I’m sorry I couldn’t be more open and honest with you. I’m sorry things didn’t work out.

I’m sorry I never believed enough or trusted enough or loved enough. I’m sorry we fell apart, and I’m sorry we still haven’t talked about it.

I’m sorry I can’t be with you today, right now, and always.

I’m sorry forever wasn’t forever.

I love you. I miss you. I’m sorry.
