    Tired Of Feeling Guilty For Not Being The Perfect Mother

    I am tired of beating myself up for my decision to "give up" my first child to be raised by other family members.  It was a good decision then and it still is.  It does not indicate a lack of concern or love on my part.  It is time to let those feelings go. ...

    Guilty

    Original title I know... But it's guilt that has hindered most of my life. I grew up with an alcoholic father who was extremely verbally abusive, and a pot head mom who was there physically, and she would defend us against my dad from time to time, but it was rough growing up. I...

    My mom mostly just makes me feel guilty

    for being homosexual. Saying it's a sin, that its wrong. It makes me hate myself for not being straight. I feel like more of a disappointment because I like girls too. She's pressuring me subtly to change my orientation and religion. I'm thinking of just giving up and pretend to...

    For Doing The Right Thing...

    People are pressured NOT TO SPEAK UP, they often fear doing the right thing when the wrong is so widely accepted. I don't believe we should feel bad for doing the right thing, to stand up for what is right. We shouldn't feel guilty for speaking the Truth.... people who don't like...
