Jon Gosselin wants to get some things off his chest.
After being a tool for much of 2009, the father of eight seems to have come to grips with his past actions and is looking to make amends and move on.

“I have apologized to Kate, to my family, and to my friends. Through counseling I have learned to own my actions," he continues. "My goal is to move forward."
Jon states that he posted a long note to his Twitter account Tuesday in an effort to “clarify a few things” and relay the negative effects of fame on his kids.
