Mistakes Were Made

Sample Letter #1

When we decided not to continue our relationship, it was the worst feeling that I had ever had. We both tried to go separately on our own paths, with only an occasional phone call. Mistakes were made and we both agreed that we each made some. Now we are both trying to make it work, hoping that this time it will work, because love and caring seem to be returning.

I believe that the love that is blossoming this time is different, because we recognize that mistakes were made, and we have agreed not to repeat them. I, for one, appreciate and respect our relationship more than I ever did in the past. I know now what it is that I have, and that I've been given a second chance to hold onto it.

The only thing that is important now is that we have a meaningful relationship. We should not take it for granted, and we certainly should not take each other for granted. I love you with all my heart. I always have, and I always will. I plan to work hard for what I believe in. Please know that I believe in our love.
