Dear {Mr./Mrs. Bossname}:

I am writing this letter to ask for a second chance. I know that my performance here at {Company Name} has fallen in the last {amount of time}, but my lackluster work has been the unfortunate result of extreme hardship.

On {date}, I {filed for divorce, was diagnosed, lost a family member, had to care for a loved one, etc.}. This unforeseen issue had a severe impact on my {health, finances, mental well-being, etc.}. It has left me stressed, tired, and unable to focus.

I know that personal problems are not an excuse for poor performance, so I have been {seeing a therapist, applying for loans, going back to school, etc.} to rectify the problem. I believe if you look at my work from the last {amount of time}, you will see the improvement that I am determined to achieve.

Please reconsider my termination. I love working here and contributing to the team, and I am working hard to get back on my feet after a difficult hardship. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Thank you,

{Sender Name}
