  1. Carol Miller – I sincerely apologized to my two daughters for having married their father. I told them I was happy they were here as a result but very sorry that he was so irresponsible, immature, immoral and unethical. I told them I only wished I could do it over and give them a father who they could admire, look up to and learn from. Even though I had divorced their father when they were quite young, I still felt I owed them this apology. nd concerned but they kept reassuring me how this would help my credit, as soon as the check arrived we would go to the bank and get the money owed to me. It ended up totaling $19,235.46. As time went on, I kept asking them about the check and they said it would be here anytime. One day I was helping her clean and I found a deposit ticket for $37,500.00. To make a long story short, I had to claim bankruptcy because they never paid me. I had to explain to Jeff everything. He was very hurt and upset. I wrote him several letters apologizing, I never wrote such a heartfelt apology in my life. I have never felt so terrible for betraying someone I loved. He accepted but it took a long time to earn his trust back. If I wouldve just told him, it never wouldve got so out of hand because he wouldnt have allowed it to. I am thankful he accepted my apology and we got threw them hard times, but I will never forget how gullible and just plain stupid I was for allowing that to happen to me.

  1. Anne – My sincerest apology (only apology) went to my mother. When she was diagnosed with ‘Cancer’ and was in the final stages of life, I felt that she had betrayed me, and was, once again abandoning me. I was sad, angry and rebellious. Denying every ‘good’ memory that she and I had ever shared in life. I was losng my best friend!! So on her ‘deathbed’, I asked her forgiveness for my being so awful to her in her time of need. I don’t imagine she really understood what I was saying to her, so I continue to, as life continues (for me) to ask her forgiveness and realize that it’s me who has to forgive myself, because, at the end of the day, I truly have to ‘let go’ of the past.
  2. Celia D. Scribner – My sincerest apologies were to those I hurt or offended while I was drinking. I have now been sober 2 1/2 years and a much happier person.
  3. Faith Faith – My sincerely apologize to my step daughter, I knew it’s very hard for her to accept the truth that her parents are divorced that Until now she didn’t meet me yet but I understand her situation because I know it’s very hard for a children to have a broken family and even me myself I don’t want it to happen. I want to ask an apology for marrying her father and I love her father so very much. I am hoping and praying that one day she will meet and talk to me.
  4. Natania – When I was 26 years old, me and Jeff had been together for 11 years, (we are still together, going on 25 years now.) Anyway we were very close, and so was our families. His sister came to me asking if I could help her get the kids Christmas gifts. She explained she had a $38,000.00 dollar check coming and would pay me back the day she got it. She even called with me on the line so I could hear the amount of the check and that it would take around 30 days to get it. After hearing that, I decided I would help, the only problem was she begged me not to tell Jeff, she said she was so embarrassed. I mistakenly agreed. As days went by, her and her husband asked me to borrow more and more. I didnt lend them cash, I let them borrow my credit cards. I was getting very worried and concerned but they kept reassuring me how this would help my credit, as soon as the check arrived we would go to the bank and get the money owed to me. It ended up totaling $19,235.46. As time went on, I kept asking them about the check and they said it would be here anytime. One day I was helping her clean and I found a deposit ticket for $37,500.00. To make a long story short, I had to claim bankruptcy because they never paid me. I had to explain to Jeff everything. He was very hurt and upset. I wrote him several letters apologizing, I never wrote such a heartfelt apology in my life. I have never felt so terrible for betraying someone I loved.

  5. DesiRae Stinson – My grandmother. She raised me after going to foster care at 12yrs old and foster care made me such an angry kid and not realizing it at that time…i made it So hard for everyone..especially ny grandparents. Well once i had my own child and was an adult looking back i apologized to that woman from the bottom of my heart and tried to make her understand my young emotions and wishing to God i could go back and be nicer. Listen more. Do more with my grandparents. Take pictures. Smile and laugh more. Just..be..better…and i know i can’t do that but thank God she’s still here now and moving forward i hope to never anger or disappoint her again because she truly raised me better!!!!!
  6. Cathy Deslippe – The biggest apology that took years to make was to myself. It was hard growing up, feeling like I was never good enough. In some ways I was told it was that I was feeling sorry for myself, in my heart I could never measure up to my sisters. Yet I was smart and could have gone even further in my education but the apology that I had to make to myself was it was okay to tell something, a secret that I kept for years, it was okay to reach out for help and it was okay to be me. After all if you can’t learn to love yourself nobody else will.
  7. DM – My son, after he took his life, I apologized to him for months. Not sure for what but I felt like I had to get it out.
  8. Caroll Souza – My mom because doesn’t matter how hard I try I will always want to make it better when we look at all she has gone through because of me.. not like I am a bad daughter but moms always suffer because of us
  9. Paul Clément – I had unreasonably criticized a young cadet member in our marching band at the local Christmas parade. My frustration got the better of me and she became an unwitting target of my ire. After reflecting on my actions, and because I had chastised her in front of the group, I proceeded to offer her my apologies, again in front of the group. I’m glad I did it that way because as a leader, it is important to set a proper example which I believe I did under the circumstances.
  10. Lindsay Poliseno – All of My family members, because I had a bad past and hurt them dearly and took special things from them, which was my biggest regret and most sincere apology! Luckily that’s all in the past now!
  11. Rebecca Cormier – My most sorry was when i was 8 years old. . .My sister and I had a sibling war, however this time, my sister threw a safe at my face. Stunned, ( One of our worst fights) I threw my first and still so far last punch i ever gave…it scarred me… Following the punch, I ran out of the area, entering into the kitchen next. I went In the furthest corner…i. Put my head on my knees and just cried, with my heart hurting so bad, i was litterally in my eyes, the worst sister in the world.. Haha i felt terrible about it.
  12. Camille Dzierba Kazmierczak – My husband took our 2 girls to an amusement park and had to come back home early because he received a phone call that his father had passed away. He called me and told me and I was just shocked and sad all at the same time. I ended up going on facebook posting for prayers for his Father. Then my husband calls me back yelling at me because his sister had called him and was so angry I posted this because her daughter did not know her Grandfather died until she read it on facebook. I was devastated and Till this day I get anxiety thinking about it. I know it was something I should have not done but I just figured everyone else already knew. I don’t blame her for being upset. I called her and she would not answer her phone. So I left a message and I literally beg for her to forgive me and the whole time I was hysterical and crying. I would never intentionally do anything like that to anyone . and it hurt that they were so angry at me. So I begged for forgiveness. She did call me back after she heard my message and we did talk but our relationship has never been the same since.
  13. Karen T – ❤Jesus Christ received my most sincere apology when I asked for forgiveness for my sins.😢 It’s hard to confess that I was wrong, (I’m still working on my list), but the reward is well worth the effort!🤗🕊💖
  14. Ray Ayala – My most sincere apology was to my basketball team in high school. With less than 5 seconds on the clock, we were down by 1 point. A teammate passed the ball to me for the final shot. It was on target and it actually went in the basket, but then it came back out. Then the buzzer went off and the game was over. I was known as a sharp shooter and many might say it is only a game, but when you are on a team, you want to come through with those big plays since they trusted me with the basketball in the final seconds.
  15. Teresa Rojas – I very sincerely apologized to my parents for all the bad choices I made growing up, and as a young adult that I know hurt them deeply. I wish I could change it all, but I can’t, so today I can just live by learning from my mistakes, and lead the best life possible.
  16. Anna Morellon – One of the places I sell things I have made is FB Marketplace. People contact me thru messenger when they are interested in purchasing. My skull table, to my suprise, got so many inquiries in one day that I sold the table to someone I thought was this other woman I had been messaging back and forth with. After marking the sale as sold the woman contacted me and was very upset. I did truly apologize and tried to explain that I got the messages mixed up, but I don’t think she wanted to hear it. I do still feel bad about it.
  17. Ken Grant – When I accidentally hit my friend’s car. He was very gracious.
  18. Sylvia – When I was a teenager I babysat for my neighbor and while cleaning up after dinner I threw all the food scraps into the garbage disposal except I discovered they didn’t have a disposal. I dumped all the food down their drain and clogged it horribly. I must have apologized for 20 minutes and felt not only stupid but upset that I was responsible for their mess.
  19. Karen P – My sister-in-law of 44 years, just last week. She accidentally knocked my screen door off the track while trying to shut it. Unknown to her, I had it slid back so as NOT to shut it. Old door, broken wheels, and torn screen. When she tried to shut it, as anyone would, it came off-track and fell off. I kinda got miffed and in a miff-huff went outside to put it back on. Felt terrible later and told her so with a heartfelt “I’m sorry”.
  20. Michelle Estes – I sincerely apologize to no one at all. Wait a minute now…don’t stop reading until you know why. Everything in our lives happens for a reason no matter if its the most earth shattering event of your life or the most miniscule fleeting moment gone completely unnoticed. Every person, relationship, chance encounter, deep connection made from the day we are born til the day we take our final breath has and will happen for a reason whether positive or negative. Some people you meet because you are supposed to help them grow into better people while others are put in our path in order to teach us a lesson and become wiser and hopefully not repeat the same mistakes again. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction is a rule of physics and that truth can be said about any and every experience we will ever have. I may not be proud of every single action and decision i have made along my path through life but I will not apologize for anything to anyone because whatever interaction we had whether good bad or ugly was meant to happen however it did and for some reason transpired whatever way necessary for each of us at that particular moment of our lives. Of course i try not to negatively impact anyone purposely but some lessons can only be learned the hard way and we all have to go through the ups AND downs. Trust me ive been “blessed” with the oh so lovely talent of not being able to ever learn the easy way. Lol. But even those of us with the dumbest luck or lack thereof should smile because its just another chapter of this wonderful journey of life and who wants to show up to their own death without a scratch, bump, bruise, tattoo, scar or any other sign to show that you enjoyed the ride to the fullest and came flying through the finish line with your blood on fire, heart pounding and tires squealing as you take a deep breath and smell the burnt rubber youve laid down and yell out “THAT WAS ONE HELLUVA RIDE!!! CAN I DO IT AGAIN?”
