Apology to brother - things said under stress

Personal Letter

Dear …

I have been thinking about you a lot lately and I wanted to send you a note to let you know how bad I feel about the way things have been left between us. I love you as my brother and I can no longer stand back and leave things the way they are between us.

I know I have not been myself this last while and have lashed out at you badly. I’ve said some things to you that I didn’t mean, __(Name)__, and I am sorry. The tremendous amount of stress I am under right now has been affecting me in negative ways at times, but that does not excuse me. Please forgive me for being so careless with my words…I wish I could take it all back.

As I reflect about this path that I`m on in my life, I think about the sacrfices that I, and those around me, are making. I just wish there was a way to help you to understand what I am going through and why I keep pushing ahead with this. The most important reason is because __(describe why it’s important to do this)__. At the end of the day, I really am only trying to do the right thing.

There have been many times I have thought of calling you, especially on those days when I am feeling tired and discouraged. More than anything else, I would welcome your friendship to see me through these tough times. I need you in my life, __(name)__, you are my brother. You are more important to me than you know. I’m just asking you for your patience and understanding during this critical time in my life...it really has not been easy for me.

Knowing that you are there for me would make things so much better. I hope that we can work through this as brothers and even better yet, become good friends. I would really like to get together with you soon to talk, if you’re willing.

With all my sincerity,
