If only I could go back in time, I want to redo many things. When you left ten days ago, it was as if time stopped. Did it really happen? Why hadn’t I foreseen those things? Even until now, I still find myself staring at the door, deeply longing that you’ll once again walk through it. Sometimes, I sit silently, wishing to hear you inside our home, but I could not hear anything. And finally, I understand why you had to go.

The reason, I believe, is my nasty temper. I have always tried my best to control it, but I’ve failed for so many times. I know that in most of my rants, you were hurt the most. This made me aware that I cannot tame my temper alone. When you left me, I realized that I have to make a difficult decision – I have to find professional help. Starting next Monday, I will start with my counseling sessions with a very good counselor. I know that my denial of the situation I am in caused me to lost the most important thing in my life — my relationship with you. I promise you that I will keep on with the counseling until I have learned to master my emotions. I will do everything to change myself and to preserve our marriage.

I am thankful that you were always patient with me. I remember the times you stood by me even if I have hurt you. I have been given thousands of second chances by you, and now I need you to give me another opportunity to make things right between us. In the present situation I am in, I need you so much more than ever. You’ve always been the strong one between the two of us, and now, I am hoping that you’ll continue being the strong one a little longer just until I can be emotionally strong enough to work together with you in our relationship. I believe that I can change things for the better if and only if you are there for me. This will be a very difficult road to travel on, but I’ve committed myself to this path even if takes forever.

I truly love you even though I am not really good at expressing it at times. I miss you deeply. I hope you see that the behavior I’ve shown you does not define the deep love I have for you. You’re the only woman in my heart. Please give me the opportunity to prove this to you.

Can you please see me again? We spent precious moments at Bob’s Restaurant. I don’t mean to be presumptuous, but I am hoping that you would agree to have dinner with me, and so, I already made reservations for us this coming Saturday evening at 7:30. I hope you will give me this chance to verbally express my heartfelt apology to you, and to talk about my counseling schedule.

Missing you a lot.
