Good luck! (That’s only half sarcasm.)
You did the thing you NEVER thought you would do. The thing your parents told you to NEVER do. OR the thing your parents were guilty of the entirety of your childhood.
You cheated on a partner and it is the MOST devastating feeling for YOU — not to mention the one you love.
Well I guess some people do, but that’s not who we are talking about. We are talking about YOU and this was never part of your plan.
Whether you were in a bad place in your life when it happened or it was a SLOPPY weekend in Vegas. IT. HAPPENED. You can’t take it back.
No ifs, ands, or buts about it! And once you make that decision to cheat you immediately regret it. A regret that will live with you the rest of your life.
No matter the circumstances, drunk or sober, happy or sad, you made the decision to cheat and now you have to live with the repercussions.
Most likely, your partner is devastated, emotional, sad and more than anything else MAD. Which is entirely expected of them.
You lost their trust in you and you may never get it back.
But if you are lucky, they will listen to what you have to say. It may take 1000 text messages and a little bit of bribing but once you have their attention … it’s time to give it all you got.
They’ll listen to the apologies and the promises, but there is no guarantee they’ll EVER take you back. You will be lucky if they even want to be “friends”.
All you can do is try, be sincere, and be there to listen. Hear how they feel and meditate on that.
Listening to what they need from you is the only way to gain trust. You will have to work hard, but you would do ANYTHING to gain back their trust.
And if you need a little help finding the right words to day, use these apologetic quotes for a good starting point.

Will it EVER be enough?
“I’m really trying, but I’m not sure if it’s enough.”
It’s sad, but true. And I deserve that.
“I need you but you don’t need me.”
The evidence is against me.
“It’s hard to trust when all you have from the past is evidence why you shouldn’t.”
I’m sorry I wasn’t there for you.
“The people in your life should be a source of reducing stress, not causing more of it.”
It’s understandable you feel that way.
“It’s not the future you are afraid of. It’s the fear of the past repeating itself that haunts you.” -T.W.W.
I fear I’ll never hold your hand again.
“I don’t want to text you. I don’t want to call you. I want to be in your arms, hold your hand, feel your breath, hear you heart, I want to be with you.”
And I can hear it breaking.
“And I confess that I’m only holding on by a thin thin thread.”
I don’t deserve how you treat me.
“Thank you for staying by my side even though I tried to push you away.”
“I am so sorry to all the people I hurt when I was hurting.”
You are too good for me.
“If you cheat on someone that is willing to do anything for you, you actually cheated yourself out of true loyalty.”
A girl can only wish.
“Perhaps one day we’ll meet again as characters in a different story, maybe we’ll share a lifetime then.”
I’ll be here.
“Take your time, don’t worry. I’ll wait forever, if that is what it’ll take for you to forgive me…”
And I know I let you down.
“I just want to make you happy.”
It will NEVER be the same again. Will it?
“Trust is like a glass, once broken it will never be the same again.”
I REALLY do.
“I wish I could be a better me, for you.”
I hope you can believe me.
“I’m not perfect, I make mistakes, I hurt people, but when I say sorry, I actually mean it.”
