A good way to show him that you are sorry and that you will work on your own issues is to give him a detailed idea of what steps you are actually going to take to do this.
Simply telling him that you will do this won’t be enough to convince him.
So, you will have to come up with a plan. You will have to identify your pain points and list them down. Then you will have to come up with ways by which you will work on each pain point.
It is really important that you are as specific as possible with this.
Guys like to deal with actionable facts.
He will be more persuaded to stick it out with you if he has actually been made privy to your plan of action to tackle your insecurities and neediness.
Mending his broken heart will require that he sees you truly making an effort to better yourself.
Hence, you will have to take real action towards this goal.
Only then will he start feeling like he can rest easy and begin to open his heart to you again.
So, it is going to require action and consistency for this to work.
But if you work at it, there is a good chance that he will give you a chance and thereby you may be able to save your 3 year relationship with him.
