Confessing is possibly one of the biggest obstacles in anyones life they need to face and admit. I confess I'm not prefect, I confess I could do better as a human being, I confess that I could have been a better brother, son, boyfriend, friend. I confess I have done things that Iam not proud of. I confess that I in the past had made my drinking and partying a priority instead of my family, job, friends and my kids. I confess that I have done things that I have brought shame to my family, my father and mother and siblings. But as I look back at each stage of my life, I have grown, learned and moved on. Yes, I ashamed of many of my acts and incidents, but those acts and incidents have also shaped me to be a better man, father, son, brother, lover and mentor. I have long way to learn, but I have time to do this. I take day by day, minute by minute and enjoy it as much as possible. Being ashamed and doing things that are wrong and sometimes embarrassing are times in our life, and possibly the most important parts of our life that make us or break us. So yes, i have embrassed my most embarassing moments and most shameful incidents and have GROWN to be a better human. I dont know of anyone that can say that they have not done something, said something, though of something that has been wrong. If you do, please let me know so I can take notes from them and learn. Why is confessing such a problem in our life, maybe 'cause we dont take the time teach our kids how do this. We are too busy with our problems and questions that we carry. And possibly quite frankly, we dont know how to confess beause we have not learned to forgive ourselfs. So one piece of advice, if I may say it. Please before you confess to your deed, always always forgive yourself......

    Some very wise words and I totally agree with you here. No one is guilt free. Everyone has made mistakes and done things we are ashamed of but like you said it helps to shape who we are today.

    And being open about those things can only allow us to learn even more from them. :)

    Very true, you can't forgive others if you can't even forgive yourself !!

    We are our own harshest critics, aren't we, darling? It sounds like you've learned a lot from the life you've led so far. Your essay makes a great deal of sense.

    I agree................We must show our kids how we handle things to be more forgiving, loving, apologetic, appreciative, considerate, etc............... We should show them how we can take responsibility for our actions............ and if we teach them to LISTEN really listen to others and to say "I'm Sorry!" they would be in such a better path in life.

    Great confession. Nothing is so cathartic and cleansing as the release that we get when we let it all go in a rush of heartfelt honesty and remorse. That's why as a Catholic, I so value the sacrament of Reconcilliation. I bare my soul, receive unconditional love and strengthening graces, and head out that confessional door resolved to make amends.
