Open Letter of Apology
To whom it may concern,
Dear neighbours, I am sorry for the times when I didn’t greet you from a distance. I am short sighted and didn’t see you. The world is usually blurry and hazy without those glasses. I do know how to greet. I’m sorry your misconceptions about me were never corrected.
Dear friends, I am sorry for the times I neglected you. I am sorry for the times when I acted as though I didn’t care. I am sorry for the times I spoke so blunt to you and hurt you. I am sorry for making you cry a few times. I am sorry I wasn’t the first person you think of when you are in distress. I am sorry for the times when my opinions mattered than whatever you had to say. I am sorry for making you feel as though I was better than the lots of you. I am sorry for not trying to keep in touch.
Dear past boyfriends, I am sorry for the fickle lover I was. I am sorry I couldn’t make up my mind on many things. I am sorry I made you feel like the center of my world when you really weren’t. I am sorry for the times I hurt you with my stubbornness. I am sorry about the times when I hurled terrible words at you. I am sorry for talking you down. I am sorry I ended the relationship most times without a meaningful explanation. I am sorry I couldn’t bare my heart. I am sorry I couldn’t let myself vulnerable in your sight. I am sorry I gave you a wrong image of myself. I am sorry for the times I pretended to be hurt. I am sorry for toying with your emotions. I didn’t really understand what dating meant.
Dear Siblings, I am sorry for the times I lied to you about facts you felt I should have knowledge about. My pride couldn’t let me tell you that I didn’t know them and so I fabricated lies. I am sorry for the times I mistreated you in the name of disciplining. I am sorry for the times I shouted at you and told you to shut up. You had a right to be heard too. I am sorry for all those birthdays I didn’t give you a birthday gift. I am sorry for the times I told you not to bother about me or my issues. I felt you were too nosy but now I know you were caring. I am sorry for the times when I did not let you borrow my things. I am truly sorry.
Dear Mama, I am sorry for the times I got angry at you because you were ever correcting me. I am sorry for thinking you are paranoid because you get overly worried about me. I am sorry for leaving you to do the meals when the kitchen conditions are not right. Now I realize how much you love me.
For these and many more I am sorry. Can you forgive me?
This is the hardest post I’ve written so far because it strikes me up close but I feel a lot better. Remember to tell me what you think in the comment box. I like feedbacks.
Until next time,
