Do you still know the password? If not, we can't do very much here, as LibreOffice now uses pretty strong encryption.

There is no known vulnerability to the algorithm used to encrypt OpenDocument files.

So when you saved with a password to a OpenDocument filetype, then the only way to gain access to the document is by guessing/remembering the correct password.
