There is no such thing as a perfect relationship. It’s inevitable that we’ll mess up and do something to hurt our partner. So naturally, what we need to do is say sorry. Sadly, sorry isn’t something that’s easy to pull off; you need to back it up with the right words to say to convince your partner that you mean it and that you’re doing what you can to make sure it never happens again.
For those of you who need a little inspiration on how to write a truly convincing sorry letter that will have your guy craving to be back in your arms, here are some letters to help you out!
This is me swallowing my pride because I’m too dumb to realize that my pride is worth next to nothing when compared to our relationship. I know it took a while, but I had to muster up the courage to really mean it when I say that I’m sorry. Babe, you know you mean the world to me, and I’d do anything to make you happy. But there are times when I become selfish and inconsiderate. I forget to acknowledge how you feel. And that’s when I do something to hurt you. Babe, I’m so sorry for what I did. I hope you find it in your heart to forgive me. I want us to work on our relationship because it’s the best thing I’ll ever have in my life. Please forgive me.
There are times when I’m clingy and annoying. There are times when I bombard you with messages because I miss you so much. There are times when I get mad at you for not responding when I want you to. I know that these things drive you up the wall most of the time. And I know that I don’t always take it to heart when you tell me to just calm down and wait for you to respond in your own time. I’m sorry. There’s a part of me that wants to always be in contact with you every minute of the day, but I know that you also have your own thing going on. I’m sorry, I promise to do better.
I’m sorry I constantly want to talk to you. I’m sorry when you take too long to reply I get all sad and mopey. I’m sorry if I say things that drive you absolutely insane. I’m sorry if I come off as annoying. I’m sorry if you don’t want to talk to me sometimes because you’re busy with something else. I’m sorry if I think about you too much and too often. I’m sorry if I yap on about some pointless drama that’s going on in my life when none of it really matters. I know that you need your space, and I’ve smothered you so much that you want to walk away.
I wish I could take back everything I said. Sometimes I just get so worked up that I would say anything out of spite, even if I know that my words have consequences. I didn’t mean any of it. I just said what I said to get the upper hand in an argument. But I know our arguments are useless if it will end up with us not making up. You’ve always inspired me to become a better person and I swear I’m working on it. Whenever I say something hurtful, that’s the old me coming back. But because of you, I want to change. I want to be someone worthy of your love. I want to be someone who will never in a million years hurt you. I’m so sorry for what I did, please let me take it all back.
There’s a song that says that sorry is the hardest word. It’s actually not, because apologizing is easy. It’s owning up to your mistakes and trying to do better that’s hard. So here’s my apology – I’m sorry for what I’ve done. But that’s not all because I want you to know how hard I’m willing to work to make it up to you. What I did was wrong, and there’s no way around it. I want to take this experience and learn from it. I want to keep this in my memory as a reminder of what I should never do again. I want to etch it into my mind so that whenever I feel the urge to do it all again, I’ll stop and remember how it hurt you. I’m sorry that I hurt you, and I’m sorry that it took me so long to realize what I did. Let’s start over and make it better.
Won’t give up on us. Even if we fight all the time and have arguing matches that last for hours, that’s still not enough to make me want to give up. It’s the easy road to take, giving up. But I don’t want easy. I want to work on our relationship so hard that nothing can ever bring us apart. I want to be completely immune to pettiness and shallowness so that we can focus on what really matters – love and commitment. I want to take this moment to apologize for all the catty things I said and all the passive aggressive crap I did. It was childish of me, I know, but that phase is over now. I want to take this experience and learn from it so that we never have to fight over it again.
I’m sorry even though I know it’s not enough. I can’t change what I did, and we can’t change our situation. Words just tumble out, they escalate, and we end up on opposite sides. But I want you to know that I’m sorry. We’re not supposed to be on opposing sides of the field. We’re supposed to be working together to make a difficult situation easier. We’re supposed to be a team, and I’m sorry I’ve done something to make you feel like I’m against you. I swear I’m not, but I know that I can sometimes be shallow and self-absorbed. Please forgive me for what I did because I need you by my side like I always have.
Sorry is never enough, I know. I actually have to change to keep all of this from happening all over again. I know that I’m always the reason we get into a fight. I can be childish and immature, and you’ve always been the patient, level-headed one between us. I want to change who I am to be a better partner for you. I want to be the woman you want to be proud to call your girlfriend. I no longer want to be the shallow, superficial girl who only cares about partying and looking good and all that drama. I want to focus more on working on us and how we can build a future together. And I think the best foundation for that is through this sincere apology, and the promise that I will become better for us.
I’m sorry I always get jealous thinking that there’s someone out there who can make you happier than I ever could. Those are my insecurities coming back to haunt me. I know I’m not the perfect girl for you. I make mistakes, I say the wrong things, and I make bad decisions. And there’s a perfect girl out there just waiting to have the picture-perfect relationship with you. I know I’m not girl, and I’m not trying to be that girl. I’m the girl who will work up the courage to apologize each time I say or do something that hurts you. I’m the girl who will do all the research and the practice to make sure I can cook you a decent dinner, keep up with you in a conversation, and give you a back rub at the end of a long day. And in turn, I want to be the girl who shows you my world, messy yet fun as it may be. I’m sorry I’m insecure and jealous and maybe a little shallow. But that doesn’t mean I’m not doing my best to be the right girl for you.
I understand that no matter how many times I say I’m sorry, it won’t wash away all the pain and hurt I have caused. But here I am apologizing anyway. I want you to know how sorry I am for what I’ve done to ruin us. I’ll make no excuses or promises. I just want you to know that what happened will never leave my mind. All I can offer you now is an apology with the hope that maybe you want to give us another shot.
Always keep in mind that you should always mean it when you apologize. It’s the sincerity that will really make your apology touch your partner’s heart. We hope that these letters are able to help you reconcile with your partner, so that you can start off another better chapter in your relationship!
