I Have Done Things I Am Not Proud of

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 31,758 People

    In elementary I always tried to fit in with

    people that looked like me rather than with people that I actually connected with on the inside. For this reason I never found my true friends until this year. Unfortunately one of them is leaving and I'm worried I might fall back into old habits if i can't see her everyday:(

    And I don't like to think about it.

    Those things are best kept buried deep in my brain.

    My first time, when I tried skipping class was

    just a few weeks ago and it ended very badly. Me and my friend were both very upset and it was second period, PE. We decided we would stay in the public toilets section of my school until class was over but after some girl from my pe class saw us we decided we had to move from...

    Drugs was the major thing I'm ashamed of.

    Almost anything you can think of, I've done it. It all started with my douchebag uncle who let me try meth when I was only 13 and ended with my weird addiction to Morphine. It's been a rough ride, but I'm 8 months clean and never been happier.

    I saw a woman today at the bus loop having what

    looked to me like an intense, violent flashback. I heard her say "Not here" and start to squirm uncomfortably. I watched, along with all the other bus riders waiting, her whimper and clench her teeth and eventually start sobbing into her hands. She looked so pained. She was...

    I have done a few things in my life

    that I am definitely not proud of. The biggest thing was when I got pregnant as a very young teenager. I knew better but just could not control my female emotions with the opposite sex. I thought I was in love but found out I was not but just horny.

    Yes, I think everybody has done something

    that they are not proud of. It's often hard to look back on mistakes and be proud of them, or times of embarrassment and feel happily about them. But I *can* find pride in the fact that I learn from them. I can be proud that I'm able to get over my mistakes, and take them with...

    I used to self harm. Not

    for attention. Not because I'm emo. It gets your mind off the emotional pain. I would've rather felt physical pain than emotional. My legs are ruined now, if you are hurting yourself... You will regret it when you get older. Everyone hurts sometimes, someone always has it worse...

    When I was 14 I went to Turks

    and Caicos for spring break with 3 of my friends. We were freshman at the time and met a couple junior boys from New York. That night we met up with them and they had bought us a handle of vodka. I had not eaten all day and started drinking a lot. My friend caught me and one of...

    I believe that it is human nature

    for us to sometimes do things that go against what we know is right. Even though I strive to be a good; moral; ethical person, sometimes I just can't help myself. Does this make me a bad person? Or just a normal human being?

    but in comparison to these experiences, mine are relatively trivial. You've all made me feel a lot better. Thanks.

    I've done things I'm not proud of,

    lied, cheated, slept with married men, been the mistress; the kept woman. I was a product of circumstance, stuck in a loveless, sexless, marriage. A product of a short first marriage that ended because of his infidelity. A second marriage ended because of resentment on my part...

    for an 8ball of coke. I am trying to get sober now because it's to the point I'm turning to prostitution for my habit and it scares me. :(

    I had no friends from 7th to 9th grade; I was

    bullied during those years, and the "popular" thing to do was to either make fun of me, or act like I didn't exist. I was like a scapegoat for everyone else's insecurities in that time. There's a lasting kind of pain that comes from that kind of loneliness. In the 9th grade, I...

    I guess. I mean, when I was in 9th grade I used

    to shop lift with my best friend. (She got me into it). I wasn't as bad as her though - she stole costly things like clothing, jewelry, etc. and she did it more often then me. I only took perfumes, makeup and hair accessories. I took a friendship bracelet once for a different...

    Things just kept stretching out

    and getting worse, less connected, infinitely more harsh. It was obviously lacking in love and all the while so desperately in need, and in need of a connection. A person can only take so much before the body autopilots and drives through the storm at high speed, all primal...

    I met this man on Craigslist.

    He says he is willing to pay me $2000 a month to be his girlfriend. This would mean companionship and occasional ******** and sex 2-3 times a week. based on his personality, I can tell he would want constant phone communication from me by calling and texting. It worries me how...

    I'm not gonna deny that I was a horrible person

    in the past. I've made someone very close to me think that I hate them. I've bullied, I've manipulated, I've lied, I've broken friendships and bonds, I've been selfish. But these mistakes have made me become a better person today and although I am not proud of what I've done, I...

    I think we all have done things we aren't proud

    of at some point in our lives. Whether we make these decisions out of passion, lust, poor perception of the situation or we may genuinely believe we are doing what's right in the moment and realize later we were wrong it still doesn't change the outcome. I've done things I'm...

    I do admit to myself that I'm not the perfect girl in the neighbour hood, I do admit that I've done things that I'm not Proud of. It's in our nature and sometimes in life your forced to do things that you don't want to do. Example, at school, I was smart, I was a bright student...

    Remember at the end of life,

    people tend to regret the things that they have not done, rather than the things they have done. So experience life. Regret nothing.
