    I Feel Guilty

    And all the more since i joined ep. i would live to vent and feel sorry for myself and probably wallow in a pool of self pity. But then i see all these people here with their problems and how much more they are going through annd feel ungrateful for venting. I wish i didnt feel...

    I'm a very secretive person.

    I love my family and friends very much, yet there are things that I just don't share that I feel I should. But we all have the right to privacy, right? However, this week...something life changing is happening. Something really big, that I've had planned for a long time but...

    My grandfather is 78 years old.

    His wife died at age 46, they had four sons. He was always an alcoholic and didn't treat her the best but loved her. She never lived to see any grandchildren. He has felt guilty about everything since she died and I've seen him cry over her when he was drinking, which apparently...

    Ending It Like a Firing Squad

    I was talking to a friend/teacher of mine recently about some guilty feelings I have been having lately about a friendship I ended. It was kind of a toxic relationship, and I was very unhappy, so I ended it to save myself a lot of pain and save her the difficulty of...

    Fighting Guilt

    I am not going to spend my life feeling guilty over something in the past that I cannot change, and I'm not going to spend all my time doubting everything people say and whether or not what I'm doing is the right thing. If I make a mistake, I am going to learn from it, not wallow...

    This is something I am going through right

    now and, frankly, it is eating me up inside and I don't know how to handle it. I will share it here from the beginning. When I was still in school, around 15 years old, I was friends with a guy. We were very close friends and, perhaps, had it continued longer, it may have...

    Doing Wrong And Getting Away From It

    As you can probably already see, I'm 13 years old. You would probably think a 13 year old wouldn't be able to be this bad, but, I am. I'm not sure if I'm proud of it. Anyways, it started when I began playing an online game called RuneScape. You can chat other people and add...

    I have to get this off my chest.

    I'm feeling horribly guilty over something I didn't do. At my low-residency college program, I live right down the hall from this really good acquaintance. He has been nice to me from the first day, and that's not always easy since I'm socially inept. We've sported beards...

    I should feel guilty.

    My stepdad died on the 10th at 3:20am this June. Exactly five days before father's day & two months before his seventh year anniversary with my mother. Aside from the grief, there are two things that are both equally a big portion of my pain aside from his sudden & unexpected...

    How can one tell when they've gone too far?

    Is it the way the knife feels in their hand, is it the pooling blood. Is it the fact that none of this was worth a thing? Why must we suffer for the ones who are really at fault? The ones invisible to anyone but those who have felt them, heard them. They live on the inside...

    I feel sick and anxious daily. Empty. Evil. Numb. I want to cry but I can't. What would it matter anyway? The past can't change. The guilt and worry won't disappear. It hurts so much to look him in his beautiful eyes. To see his soft trusting smile. His happy glow which...
