“I’m sorry,” just isn’t going to cut it. These are the five apologies you wish your ex had given you that may have changed things (or at least ended the relationship on a better note).
It’s my fault
Ah yes, the sweet sound of your ex admitting they were wrong (and no gaslighting in sight)!
I wish I had been more considerate
Of your time? Of your emotions? Frankly, it could be an infinite list, but being considerate of your partner is part of Relationship Rules 101.
I took you for granted
An ex admitting how good they had it with you validates how great of a partner you were …even if they weren’t.
I wasn’t as open as I could have been
Did the relationship end because of a lack of honesty? We’ve all been there, and it’s nice when your ex can admit that.
It’s not me, it’s you
This can be a tricky one based on how it’s worded, but it’s essential nonetheless. Sometimes it seems like relationships end for no good reason, and that’s because the reasons we are often given are total BS. It’s important to know exactly why an ex wanted to part ways – it may become an important life lesson for your future relationships.
