Although some are surprised, there are many people who are unable to express their feelings and, many more, those who do not know how to ask for forgiveness.
It is true that not all damages can be repaired by asking for forgiveness, because there is irreparable love damage, but many times, when our partner feels disappointed, it would be enough to ask sincerely for forgiveness.
Why is it so hard for us to ask for forgiveness? Maybe we are afraid to recognize our mistakes and show our limitations so that a future is not used against us.
But that is a perspective of relationships based on the idea of a kind of war between two hearts, something that does not seem healthy.
That is why when we make mistakes and hurt our partner, it is necessary to ask for forgiveness, in the way that best suits us. And maybe a love letter is the best way to apologize to our partner. We write that love letter for you to ask for forgiveness.
Example of a love letter to ask for forgiveness
I’m sorry, my love,
Above all, I am sorry, and that is why I am writing this letter to you, because the apologies come out better on paper and so I assure you that you can understand everything, reading it as many times as necessary. I’m so sorry I disappointed you, that the truth is that I do not know how to give you all the explanations, nor do I know how to apologize.
On the other hand, I know perfectly well that I was wrong, that I had taken the trust you had placed in me and in our relationship and that I broke so many dreams and illusions. And that’s why I apologize. But I want you to know the reasons or, rather, the only reason, that led me to disappoint you. It was because of fear.
I was so afraid of the path my relationship was taking, I was so afraid of going too fast that something inside forced me to take a step back. I was aware of the damage I was doing to you, really. The truth is that it was something motivated by selfishness and fear and that’s why I apologize.
I have no idea what is the best way to repair the damage, but I am willing to work on this relationship and take care of it until I recompose it. Because if something is safe at this time, if something has been served my mistake is to know what I want and what I do not want. I love you and I do not want to lose you.
I’m sorry honey.
