Sorry Letter to Mom

Sorry Letter to Mom

Everyone of us seem to owe an apology to our mom at some point of our lives. A sorry letter to mom is the perfect way to express your apology, as words can reflect a higher sense of in-depth feelings as compared to any other way of communication.

The relationship that we share with mom is as pure, strong and meaningful as the relationship we share with God. She is the one who understood us when no one else did. She was the one who spent sleepless nights to make us feel comforted when we cried. She was the one who gave priority to nothing else when it came to us, and trust me, she is the only person who will be the happiest in this world when you grow successful and happy in your life, even if you end up staying away from her!

For all that our mom has done for us, do we honestly think that we have treated her the way she deserves? Well, a sorry letter can just be the beginning...
Many a time, knowingly or unknowingly, we tend to say or do things that hurts mom to a great extent. Although she doesn't show it, or react the way she should, but then, the one who taught us to respect others, has been disrespected by us many times.

Writing a letter expressing your sorry to her becomes a must when you realize how you have hurt her emotions while you were busy fulfilling the desires of others and/or your own. If you want to show your mom how much you love her and how much she means to you, write down an apology letter to your dearest mother and speak your heart out.

Dear Mom,

It's really hard for me to express how deeply sorry I am to have hurt you in the past. Words cannot describe how making you feel disrespected and alone has made me feel?miserable and guilty. I wasn't in my senses then, but that is no excuse! As a child, you always taught me to respect others, even if they were rude to me. How could I hurt you of all people? You, who never gave up on me, you who always saved me from dad when I messed up. You, who always made me realize how special I am when the world forced me to believe that I was worthless; you, who never left me alone when I was upset or afraid.

I remember the times, when no matter how tired you were, you always sat next to me to know how my day at school went, or maybe read out my favorite story. And now I feel horribly guilty of not spending much time with you, blaming my busy schedule as an excuse! Now when I have grown up, I realize the fact that no matter how hard you tried to comfort me in my pain, I pushed you away thinking that you would never understand! But I was so wrong mom. You knew beforehand that things were not right with me, you understood me before I could understand myself, that the path I took, did not have a happy end. I was too busy, and too much engrossed in my own world, that I forgot that my world is nothing without you! I realize that now, and I am terribly sorry for hurting you, for saying words that should have never even crossed my thoughts, for taking your love, your care and your concern for granted.

I am really sorry, dear mom! And what makes me feel more guilty is the unconditional love that you have for me, in spite of behaving in such a disrespectful way, your arms are always open to hug me and make me feel safe, secure and loved. Your smile still tells me that no matter what, you are always happy to see me, your eyes are enough to show the love that you have for me, and I feel I am the worst daughter, for bringing tears to those eyes. I love you mom, and I realize that I am nothing without you. Your love and your blessings are the most important to me in this world. I promise it will never happen again and I will be the daughter you deserve to have.

I really hope that you will forgive me...

I love you mom,
Mary
So, this was an example of how you can express your apology in writing. I hope this letter helped you, or even encouraged you to start framing your thoughts and feelings into words. Always remember, no matter how much you hurt your mom, her heart will always be full of love and compassion for you. She did so many things to help us grow into the person we are today. Just a simple sorry letter is no match when compared, but definitely a step towards making your mom feel loved and cared for. Keep her happy, there is no happiness greater than that. :)
