Apology Letters

   Apology For Giving Up

Dear {Name},

You’re right. I gave up. I simply could not {action/responsibility/etc.} anymore.

I could argue that there is value in knowing when to cut one’s losses, or wax poetic about sunk cost fallacies. But the truth of the matter is, I was just done.

What I regret is not looping you into my thought process sooner. I understand that my decision to end {project/affiliation/relationship/etc.} resulted in significant fallout to you, and for that I am sorry. If I had it to do over, I would have communicated better.

Thank you for hearing me out. I wish you the best in the future, and I hope you feel the same about me.
