    I Feel Guilty For Existing

    I have a habit. A habit of apologizing over everything. I'm not the kind of guy who can say "**** it, **** the world, **** humanity" and live life without caring what other people think of me. I believe it's impossible to not care what others think of you because at the heart of...

    I Feel Guilty For Being Alive.

    It seems odd, an odd thing to feel guilty about, an odd feeling to have, but i have it. I feel guilty ever day I wake up.This guilt stems from a few different reasons and a mix of experiences (i think at least).My mom had me when she was very young, and even though she WANTED to...

    Guilty For Living

    As far back as I can remember - guilt, shame, and fear have run my life completely. Guilt seems to hit me the hardest the majority of the time. I get feeling guilty about every single little thing..... It doesn't help having a family that has always used guilt as a form of...

    I feel guilty for being alive.

    I feel guilty for being able to breath and walk and talk. I feel guilty for ruining my parents lives by being born. I wish they never met and got married, I wish they never had me. I feel so bad that they have to work to support me. They hate their lives so much. Today is their...
