I Hope You Can Forgive Me

by somebodysmom

"I hope you can forgive me."

God, I hate those words.

I'm hurt and I'm sad and now I have to worry about being an asshole if I don't. You sounded so sincere. It would have been easier if you hadn't asked.

Because the thing is, somewhere along the line these words stopped being an apology.

Somewhere along the line they become a way to weasel out of whatever it is you did. Whatever way you hurt me.

It was never really about forgiveness, was it?
