I Am Trying to Be a Better Person

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,202 People

    I feel like I'm pathetic.

    I have a huge crush on my Econ teacher and is know I'll never have a chance. he's married, has children, and he's 43. I love him so much but why can't I be normal and like someone my age? *sigh*

    A Recent Conversation I Had With Myself

        I wish we could forgive each other.    You're better off without me, and I know it.    I'm so sorry it had to be this way :(   I thought I forgave you, but then I realized I am angry with how you haven't forgiven me.  Which...

    By This I Mean...

    Be The Best Me I Can Be. And The List I Came Up With 2 Do That.

    I find it so hard though.

    Sometimes I get so angry or depressed for no apparent reason. I start crying for no reason and I'm mean to people even if I don't want to be. Then when I'm back to my normal self, I feel terrible for what I don't but I have too much pride to apologize for it.

    I experienced a past

    that made me into an introverted and insecure girl. My dad did not have good parenting skills, and he would use aggressive and angry behavior towards me ever since I could remember. My mother was nice, but she never stopped him from hurting me and I sometimes I think about that...

    I'm not the most amazing person,

    I have my moments, I'm not an angel, but that doesn't mean I won't become one, we learn from our mistakes and I have, and I will make sure not to re make them, every saint has a past, every sinner has a future

    Today I betrayed someone's trust.

    I took a break from speaking to them for a long time and when we reconnected, I went back to my old ways. I am a good person and I will make better decisions. This person that I have hurt constantly tells me that I will never amount to anything differently but I know better. I...
