I Feel Guilty About Everything

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 178 People

    I often feel guilty in relationships

    even when I've done nothing wrong. I feel a strange need to tell the person in dating every little thing they might possibly get a little upset over because if I don't I'll feel like I'm hiding something and feel terribly guilty. It's so weird

    The Slightest Falter Or Mistake

     The slightest falter or most minor mistake will set me off on a guilt trip, a very unnecessary one.  Like today, we were putting on the driveline of this loader we've been working on trying to get back in motion all semester.  I found the fitting underneath on top...

    My Guilt.

    I feel guilty about everything. The truth is, do lie quite a bit and I've realized I do it without thinking about it now. One of my friends asked me to do a piano piece for her (she didn't expect it to be good or anything, I'm not that good) but I ended up just splicing together...

    I Think It's In My Genes.

    I always feel guilty. I feel guilty when I have to cancel on someone, or when I don't have the time to hang out with a friend, or when I screw up at work. It bugs me. I don't understand why I do this. I swear it's passed down to me from my family!

    Mini Me? (actually, He's 6' Tall And 190 Lbs...lol)

    I often feel guilty about many things, but specifically, I feel guilty that I favor one of my children over the others. I love all three of them more than anything, I would die for all three, without hesitation. However, I feel closer to my son, who happens to be the eldest...

    I had my dog put to sleep. She couldn't walk anymore. But she trusted me. It has been 3 years and I will miss her forever!

    Feel Guilty About Everything......

    To Emma I can't live with all the guilt.

    Sorry if you expected me to and I have been inadequate as a 'friend'. Sorry for not being able to protect you like a good 'friend' should. I'm sorry for underestimating and I'm sorry for being small-minded. I'm just sorry. I wish you could be sorry back. I'm sorry for being so...

    Maybe Not Everything

    I end up feeling guilty about a lot of things.  Even the ones that aren't my fault.  Through some sick reasoning I'll convince myself that I probably could have done something to prevent whatever the problem at hand is and then I start feeling guilty.  It's...
