I hope this piece is helpful to those of you who struggle with saying I'm sorry.
There is strength and character in an apology.
With The Heart in Hand, I am truly sorry. With humility, I apologize for my actions and the hurt they may have caused you. It was never my intention to hurt you, and I deeply regret my mistakes. I was angry with myself and I took it out on you.
My love for you is genuine, and I am fully aware of the pain I've brought into your life. I now understand the importance of seeking your forgiveness and the significance of acknowledging my faults. I hope that my sincere apology and my willingness to make amends will demonstrate the strength of my character. I promise to learn from this experience and work tirelessly to become a better person, both for you and for the sake of our relationship.
With all my love and humility.
