I would like to make a public apology to someone that I was a jerk to.
I have been under a lot of stress lately, and unfortunatly I took it out on the person who deserved it least of all. Someone who has meant so much to me lately, and who has changed my life in so many ways. I am ashamed of myself for my behavior, and I want to fall on my knees, bow down to you, and tell you that I'm sorry here on DU in front of everyone.

If any of you have ever done something extremely stupid and hurtful to another human being, then I ask you to please keep this kicked so that everyone can see it.

I'm so sorry. :loveya: :hug:

I was wrong, and I risked the best thing that's ever happened to me.

10. on a serious note
It is obvious you are sincere in making amends, and I have no doubt you will be forgiven if you ask.

Looking at your arc of behavior over many months, an aberration is obvious, as it is not a pattern with you.

Everything will be okay, my friend.

18. I've done more stupid and hurtful things to people who meant a lot to me..
...than I can readily recall. In fact, I may even be doing something like that to a wonderful person as I sit here typing!

My dumb ass. :( :cry:

20. You have earned my utmost respect....
it takes a unique individual to admit they were wrong, and an astounding person of courage to do it in public.

Regardless of whom was the target of your malfeasance, I hope and pray that individual accepts your apology and life will move on.

One thing I have learned over my 160+ years plus on this planet, is that forgiveness is total; there are no strings attached, and the board is erased. If you are forgiven, for whatever you've done, consider yourself fortunate. The second part f forgiveness, is to never do the same thing again, learn from mistakes and avoid the same ones at all costs.

Finn, you are one of the finest people I've come across, and I wish you all of the luck in the world. I have nothing but the highest respect for you, and with luck, our paths may someday cross... O8)

21. Wow Finnfan.
That is really nice. Whoever you are talking to should be so flattered. I read a lot of what you post and can't imagine you doing anything that would require this but then I am presently very drunk but still impressed.

22. Thanks.
I did something that required this, trust me. I won't do it again, though.

And trust me, I know how you're feeling right about now. :toast:

23. Our true friends love us in spite of who we are.
We all have days--but the real people who love us understand that and love us enough to tell us when we need to pull our head out of our backside. At least that is how I feel about it.

Finnfann, you may be a butthead about your Fantasy Football teams, but you have never been mean to me... :)

25. Our true friends love us BECAUSE of who we are - bad and good, its all us
Edited on Mon Jul-26-04 12:34 AM by Selwynn
Who we are includes our ability to admit mistkaes, which is an awfully lovable trait. :)

27. At least now...you are smiling.
One time here I put somebody on ignore. And it bothered me all day so I took them off ignore. And yet I still felt so badly about it, that I felt I should apologize to them. But really, if I had done that the person ignored would have sent the white coats, eh?

FinnFan you are a wonderfully wonderful person, and one I am glad to know. I do hope all is forgiven for you!

:hi:

30. It takes a big person to admit when they're wrong....
Being abot to say you're sorry also shows that you are sensitive to others' feelings.

I'm sure your friend appreciates it.
