When necessary, just say you're "sorry" and it'll bring you peace . . . you don't know what you're missing from someone you've mistaken or hurt, and there could be a true friendship waiting to blossom . . . or respect from an acquaintance, worker, anyone . . . life is too short to have regrets or miss good opportunities because your ego gets in the way.
I take EVERY bit of blame for what has happened and I hurt you unnecessarily. You were unaware of any of it. I'm sorry, I will always be sorry for getting sucked into it ALL. I hurt, we hurt, a lot of people and ruined friendships. You're never going to forgive me but I am truly sorry.
