Please forgive me

Our sensitivity detectors sometimes get a little skewed in a breakup's aftermath.

We become experts in character assault, penning reputation-damaging blog posts and cryptic Facebook status updates.

When you're blinded by heartbreak, certain thoughts don't cross your mind. Among those: "Hey, his mom might read this."

Most of us end up regarding our breakup rage as a mere misstep in the journey toward love.

But what if you were compelled to ask an ex for forgiveness?

In this Double X essay, one woman details the guilt she felt after writing a column badmouthing her ex. Ultimately, that guilt was strong enough to make her ask for forgiveness face-to-face.

Would you ever do the same?
