My daughter is now almost 25 and she won't forgive me for acts in the past, what can I do?

I stayed with a husband that beat me for 12 years and thought my kids didn't know what was going on. I have since found out they knew. After he almost killed me I left him and turned to drugs for about 2 years. My children were living with my parents at that time. My daughter says she can't forgive me for staying with my ex and doing drugs. I have been clean for 11 years and have since changed my life for the better. I have apologized, she acted like she forgave me when she was in college so I would give her money but just before she graduated she told me she did not love me and she has not talked to me since. That was almost three years ago.
