    Every time I ask my parents

    for something I feel guilty. I'm very frugal because my teachers once told us that children where very expensive to take care of, as a result I was scared of spending too much money and making myself more of a burden than I already am. My mom and dad would always joke around...

    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...
