Eating my words

I said bad things about some people a while back and I regret it. What I should have done was take deep breaths and maintain a better handle on my emotions. I’m sorry for everything. It’s late. The damage has been done. I’m not asking for anyone to be my friend. It would be nice if the people whom I hurt forgave me but sometimes there are things that can never be forgiven. If they want to forgive me or not, it’s their choice so I’m leaving the decision up to them.

So you’re posting this on an anonymous forum instead of actually talking to them directly? If you’re truly sorry about something then you should make a sincere apology to them directly. There’s no guarantee they’ll forgive you, but that’s not the point. It’s up to you to acknowledge what you did and apologize for it.

in my case the psychopathic manager deserved to be bad mouthed but dumb me forgot the two wrongs don't make it right rule. For years they tried to undermine me at work after office stoolie spilled the beans. I played dumb to managers counter attack because I can't stand office drama

Forgiven but not forgotten

I know of someone much like you. I forgave them, but they'll never know it because they were never honorable enough to do the right thing. And no, I would not be interested in any kind of relationship with them now. I wish them all the best, but I only allow those that I know I can trust to be part of my life. These days having people you can trust around you is now more important than it ever was.

Good confession

At least you're not ashamed to admit that you were in the wrong. It takes a lot guts to do so and I think you're the bigger person. Take it from me. I got into a thing with someone on Facebook. At first, I was adamant and thought everything I said was correct. But then I realized that I crossed a thin red line. So I apologized to that person. No response. That person obviously hates me and wants absolutely nothing more to do with me. Nothing more I could do but simply accept the situation for what it is and move on. It doesn't matter if the person whom you've hurt doesn't show any forgiveness because you'd be very surprised at how you feel a weight lifted off your shoulders. I hope my word of advice to you helps you even the slightest bit. Take care of yourself.

Not sure who you’re trying to help with this. I think, just yourself.

I find your work around for apologizing revolting. I hope you find warmth in your pretend apologies.

Best to have a conversation with that person face-to-face. Be compassionate but do it with no expectations: forgiveness or not. Practice the law of non attachment to outcomes.
