How do I get my girlfriends to get over me lying to her after I apologize?

You might find Stephen Covey’s book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People of interest in this connection, especially habits 4, 5, and 6. Link is to inexpensive secondhand copies.

How do I apologize after the same mistake?

Have you heard the expression "You can't unring a bell?"Some behaviors are unforgivable. If you are only in a relationship for a year, you are still on probation. You seem to admit to having a track record of making the same mistake repeatedly, and have been forgiven each time. You crossed the line and got another chance. How many times did you think you would be allowed to do this? You asked her for her trust that you would repair the damage, and she assumed this meant you would make a real effort to avoid repeating the mistake.The most important thing in life is relationships. Relationships with a friend or lover cannot be taken for granted like a family member. They have no obligation to you by blood relation (and even those relationships can be destroyed by breaking trust time after time).Let's say you make a mistake at work. How many chances would you get to rectify the error before you are terminated?This time may have been the dealbreaker for your girlfriend. You may need to take a break and demonstrate to her as a platonic friend that you have learned your lesson, can put her needs first, and restore trust by following through consistently.I feel for you. We all make mistakes and we all should offer second chances. At a certain point we don't like people wasting our time in relationships that are not going to satisfy and prove to be lasting.

What should apology letter include for falsely accusing family member for inappropriate behavior?

We have a blended family. I have 2 older children and my husband has 2. My step daughter told a lie about my son 4 years ago. She was 12 at the time and she accused my 14 year old son of son inappropriate behavior. She has always been very dramatic and constantly tell lies about even little things that don't matter. She told my daughter in confidence that he tugged at her pajama bottoms while she was sleeping. My daughter immediately came to me and told me what was said. When we attempted to sort things out it came to light that what she said happened could not have happened. My son was not ever in the room she was sleeping in. We explained to her that for everyone's best interest she needed to go live with her mother and she then said she must have been dreaming it and that it didn't really happen. There is no way I was going to have this child in our home with my son. She could have ruined his entire life with her lies. It was a heart breaking decision because I really wanted a good stable home life for her and I was certain she would not gain that with her mother.
She moved in with her mother for 4 years. The environment there was horrific. Often her mother would move from city to city and not allow her to contact us. She missed an entire year of school and when she was enrolled no one encouraged her to go or do work. We found her after several month and decided that she should no longer suffer in her current environment. My son has since gone away to school in another city. We went to court and got full custody of her and she moved back into our home. One of the stipulations to allowing that was she has to write a letter of apology to her step brother. I need help with a guideline for what it should have to include. Please make suggestions.
