Subject: Forgiveness

I need to be forgiven by the wives and families of married men I have had relationships with. I have been involved in relationships with four married men and I do not know how to make ammends or whom to ask for forgiveness. I was young at the time and needed attention and love and did not know where to find it. This is not an excuse, only an explanation. I am not the same person as I was in the past, but my actions still bother me. I feel tremendous guilt for the pain I may have caused these families and I can never take back what I did. I also need to pray for forgiveness for a child I conceived during one of these relationships. I aborted this child and will always regret this. I was never again blessed with another child. The memories of these times never leave me and I have little peace. I ask God for forgiveness, but How do I forgive myself?
