BY ANNIE LANE
I was in a long-distance relationship with a girl for several months. The relationship ended at my insistence and in the most cowardly way possible: a text. I have wrestled with the shame of that for quite some time. I have also wrestled with whether or not to reach out to her and apologize. The biggest problem is that this was twelve years ago.
I don’t want to reconnect to try and get back together but rather to apologize for the immature, nay, dirtbag way I ended things. This has bugged me off and on for years. I did not give her the respect she deserved. At this point, is it selfish to reach out and attempt this? What I do not want is to cause distress or anger on her part. Last I heard, she was married and happy as far as I could tell. — Torn in the Midwest
It’s long been said that time heals all wounds, and after a decade-plus, I’m sure this woman has completely recovered from the damage you caused 12 years ago. That said, everyone appreciates an apology when they’ve been wronged. This has weighed on you many times over many years, and reaching out in the form of a letter or an email could serve as a final dose of closure for you both.
Poet Nikki Giovanni once said: “Mistakes are a fact of life. It is the response to the error that counts.” Keep any correspondence to this woman brief and don’t expect any sort of reply. Better late than never.
