I know you probably don’t want anything to do with me, but I’d still like to say I’m sorry. I know I’ve said it almost a thousand times, but I still can’t stop feeling guilty for how badly I hurt you. I’m sorry I broke up with you for someone else.
I’m so sorry that I spent the whole of the three years of our relationship loving him. It wasn’t my intention. Our relationship was supposed to be a rebound and you were supposed to help me fall out of love with him. I was supposed to forget about him because of you. That was the plan.
However, the plan didn’t work. I tried and tried to love you more than him, but I could never stop hearing his voice in my head and seeing him in my dreams. I could never stop wishing for him and praying for him to come back. I wasn’t trying to hurt you, but getting over him was impossible for me.
I’m sorry for making you compete with him, because it was a game you had lost before it even started. I’m sorry for comparing you with him, but his love was unique and there was nothing you could ever do to match up. It really wasn’t your fault, so you can put the blame on me.
I’m sorry that I cheated on you with him, and I’m sorry that I broke up with you because of him. I know sorry doesn’t do much, but it’s the best that I have to offer right now. God knows I never meant to break your heart, but I was selfish, and for that I sincerely apologize.
I hope you’ll find it in your heart to forgive me someday, and I hope you find a girl that will make you as happy as he makes me.
Take care of yourself…
