I Did Something I Said I Would Never Do

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 943 People

    When I was younger, I always told myself

    that I would never have any regrets. I was still living in that magical, delusive little world called youth, and I couldn't understand how adults ended up with regrets in their life. 'Why don't they just do what they want to do?' I would wonder, incredulously. 'Stupid adults...

    I cut myself. Never thought I'd do it

    We Really Can'T Understand It Till We Experience It

    I am talking about staying married because of the children. I didn't get married early or too young, I was very adult and mature, I wanted to have children, and I was absolutely sure that there's no way I will ever stay married if love 's gone or just because we don't want to...

    I first cut myself when I was 14.

    I had a few friends who cut themselves, and I always told them that cutting would not solve any of their problems, and in fact, just cause more problems afterwards. I always told them it's stupid and that I would never do it. But one day I started thinking that maybe it really...

    Here's One Everybody Does

    Here is one I would be willing to bet every parent on earth does. As a kid we ALL hated to hear the words 'BECAUSE I SAID SO". It was the worst. As kids whatever it was we wanted to do this was not an acceptable answer. We ALL said "When I am a parent I will NEVER say that". For...

    Me Also

    Yeah, I also said I would never get married. But I did it three times and now have realized that not only did I get married, I did it to the wrong sex of person. I have had enough of being a man I now hope to live with a man and have a nice romance.

    I had an affair with someone I thought was my

    best friend. I want to be with him, even though I know he will never treat me as a priority. Trying to talk sense into my brain because I know he is toxic.

    Years ago I promised I would never say "I Love

    You" without truly meaning it. And I did. I wasn't entirely sure, and it's still a complex puzzle, to what Love truly is... It's fickle and easily deterred.

    I told myself that I wouldn't self-harm - I did,

    and I just relapsed. I said I hated smokers - I started smoking and still do. I told myself I'd never touch weed - I did and still do, occasionally. I said I wouldn't steal - I did, and used to steal a lot. I probably did a bunch of other things that I said I wouldn't, but...

    I Did Something I Said I Would Never Do...
