    I'Ve Missed Out On Everything Called Relationships.

    During my entire life I've all ways thought doing something cool, would lead me too the right girl. I know now that I am the one too blame, but I can't find a girl anymore that searching for the same. Have I gotten to far, so far that I don't even have time? We can do the short...

    Water

    When me and my twin brother were about 14, our parents sent us to Sea Camp. This was on Catalina Island, just off the Pacific coast. The whole point of going to this camp was to learn how to SCUBA dive. But, on the first day of camp, we learned that our parents hadn't paid the...

    I hate being shy. It's a terrible.

    I've missed out on so much because of it. I've missed out on friends, and other social things. But part of my loss is not my fault at all. My dad isn't around much and he never lets me travel. We just sit at home doing nothing, and I end up wanting to kill myself (for other...

    I'm almost 22 and feel like I barely lived

    except work and study. I have no real friends and feel my self confidence has let me miss out on experiences. Sometimes I think when I'm old, I won't have any great life experiences to remember. I want to enjoy life more.

    And It Leaves Me Wondering...

    I don't really feel lacking in my childhood.  Growing up, my family wasn't the richest on the block for sure, but I was mostly happy.  I may not have had the best clothes or the newest toy as soon as it was released, but I was ok with it.  My missing out comes...

    My parents, being the Catholics they are (I am

    too, but they took it to the extreme) prevented me from watching Harry Potter and going trick-or-treating. I've also never been overseas or on a plane.

    I somehow feel I missed out on life.

    That in many times, situations and places I just missed out on something terrific through fear. Fear of what? Failure, ridicule, exposure, being hurt, etc. So for most of my life I've played a straight bat, a boring line. I've not run off into the sunset, jumping on an...

    Missing Out

    I feel like I have missed out mainly because I am shy. Also because I have been left out by people a lot. I hate feeling like I've missed out.

    when I was younger. I'm 17 now. I've lived a secluded life and I'm so sick of it. All I want to do is learn how to fight, like Tae Kwon Do or Karate, maybe boxing but not a lot. I've wrestled with my cousin a few times but I sucked. So I want to get better at that too. All my...

    It's My Own Fault

    I have missed life experiences because I wouldn't allow myself. For example, I didn't go to a friends Halloween party one year because I was feeling very insecure; I just made up an excuse not to go. Now they all discuss the memories and inside jokes from that party. I ...

    Missed Out On Life

    I am 22 and lack any basic life skills. What should I do? I went to high school and college, but somewhere along the way I ignored things like learning how to cook, hold friendships, interact with others, and not be selfish. I have B.F.A. but don't even think I could hold a...
