I am really confused. It's been seven days and my girlfriend of one year has not picked up my calls or spoken to me. Seven days ago, we had a major argument at her place and I had couple of drinks too many, then one thing led to another and I hit her. After I realized what I had done, it was too late. She had no interest in listening to what I had to say so I left. I am doing everything in my power to let her know how sorry I am, but she won't accept any of my attempts. My feelings of guilt and horror are unimaginable.
I know I will never ever do it again -- this experience completely changed me. I never could have imagined being such a bad guy. I am really down in the dumps and don't know where to go from here. Can I ever be forgiven and will I ever be able to forgive myself?
