    I Caused Trouble And Hurt Feelings At The Store

    It's the weekend and on my list of things I've for sure got to do next week is to go apologize to a lady who works in a store. I am pretty disgruntled with myself because I think that I was short with her. It's a store where you can buy a drum of mayonnaise and everything comes...

    This Feeling Sucks....

    I have not only hurt myself to the point where I don't think that the damage can be reverese at this point, but not only have I hurt myself beyond I can put into this story, that is not what I care about. I could care less about the pain I have brought upon myself, but the very...

    As Is Quite Fitting, And Right.

    I know that there is a segment of the human population that feels no sorrow or regret and have no compunction with hurting others. I am very fortunately not among that ilk. When I've hurt someone, it plagues me until I've made it right or at least sought that person's forgiveness...

    Need To Escape

    So, question. Has anyone ever seen that movie, "Sleeping with the Enemy"? Well, I live it and there is no escape. I don't know how much longer I can deal with this.

    Telling my family and friends what they don't

    want to hear as apposed to what they want to hear, hurts me way more than it hurts them. What kind of person would I be if I can't be honest to the people I love more than anything in this world?

    I feel as if all I do is hurt people.

    I feel so bad and guilty when I hurt someone. I tend to hold onto my guilt and in the end it hurts me more than when I hurt someone. I can't ever say sorry enough

    I Am So Sorry.

      I try very hard not to hurt other persons and I try to get close to persons without them getting too close to me as I never want to hurt anyone’s feelings. I am sorry if I have hurt you.

    It's too true! If I can tell

    that something I said has emotionally effected someone in a negative way. I want to die. I want to go back in time kill myself before I hurt that person and just be dead so that I never hurt anyone emotionally again. Unfortunately that isn't the case and I have hurt people in...

    I have once broken down

    since I made my friend feel disappointed and sad. When I knew that, I couldn't stop crying. And the next few days, I felt so terrible. I felt so guilty and sad. Then, when I met that friend, I told her that I cried a lot and I was so sorry for that. She was a bit surprised. I...

    For A Long Time

    I always feel like crap when I hurt someone, even by accident. It probably takes me longer to get over hurting someone than it takes them to get over it. I still find myself beating myself up over pain that I caused years ago. Don't get me wrong, I will defend myself even if it...

    Karma Chameleon.

    Pain is never nice. To feel you are giving pain to someone by accident or in deliberate cause, is wrong. Understanding each other is what will make us better. We will move along the road, and lessen the affects of our own karma by being aware of pain and avoiding its uglinesses...

    updated; Anyone Who Feels Terrible When They Hurt Someone Is Very Special In The Eyes Of God.

    Believe it or not those words have more meaning than the vast majority in this world has any understanding of because of there spiritual meaning in relation to the only true God; and care to know why? What fully determines who a person is genuinely is what can only be seen by...
