Woman Writes Open Letter To Her Husband - 'I Am Sorry'

A freelance writer from New Jersey wanted to apologize to her husband for how she had changed over the years. In the candid open letter, the wife pours out her heart in a way that will resonate with many women.

Laura Birks tells her husband that she's sorry she's 'not the spontaneous, beer drinking, sexy bad girl you met way back when.' She apologizes for seeming to neglect him and his needs, for being too tired and too busy to make him a priority anymore. But she claims she has good reason for the change in her and has no regrets.

Birks explains that with 4-year-old twins, her brain is constantly in 'mother mode,' and it's exhausting.

"I don’t want you to think you aren’t as important as you once were," Birks explains to her husband. "I couldn’t live this life without you and I wouldn’t want to, either. But the simple fact is, you’re an adult and you can do things for yourself. You can vote, so you can make your own lunch. You are legally able to drive a car, so you can figure out how to make a doctor’s appointment."

She also explains that she puts her own needs even further down on her priority list than his. "Who do you think gets ignored? It’s not you. It’s not our children or our pets," she explains.

She tells him that she has a 'never-ending list of things I will feel guilty about when I am trying to sleep tonight,' but goes on to say she's not blaming him. In fact, she praises him for being so hard-working, caring and loving. It's her, Birks explains to her husband. She's changed.

"I am not the person you married 11 years ago. I have changed and evolved into a wife, mother, friend and keeper of all schedules. I am a party planner and a personal shopper. I am a chef specializing in chicken nuggets and pasta. I am a housekeeper that can’t keep a house. I am the cheerleader and the librarian. I am the night and the day nurse," Birks writes. She concludes that she wouldn't have it any other way, but that he needs to understand why she's different.
