I Have Done Things I Am Not Proud of

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 26,506 People

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

    most of the time it's just me being dared to do something stupid cause I'm shameless and other times its me doing something stupid without even realizing it and immediately regretting it later.

    I'm trying to be a better person,

    the hardest part is forgiving yourself the damage you've done to yourself.

    I have done several things I am not proud of.

    I have hurt people and almost ruined most of my life. I was here before under a different profile. I had a book I was promoting and I ran a private club. Now they are all gone. Losing them brought me more happiness than I could ever have imagined. I become involved with...

    I have to quit smoking weed today.

    My dealer is being sentenced for almost 3 months. What's sad to say is aside from my coworkers he was the only person I talked to. He's the only text messages in my phone and he's one of the few contacts I have. I didn't maintain a friendship with him it was always just business...

    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 am not perfect. I face regrets.

    Every. Single. Day. I am a person who has hurt many people simply out of ignorance. I try every day to learn from these mistakes, but sometimes it is just too overwhelming, all this unintentional hurt I've caused.

    I was made redundant last week

    and asked the man I have been seeing along to my work drinks. He used to say he didn't want a relationship but get drunk and we would kiss and have sex. It was like a relationship bar the occasional protests. Recently he decided that we should be just friends so he came...

    Emotionally Hurting SO.

    Everything is usually fine until I've had a few drinks too many. Which has always caused us problems. I don't want to nor would I seek to hurt him in a normal mind state. But something snaps when I get like that and I blackout and start doing horrible things. I'll usually say...

    Sigh. Haven't we all done things were not proud

    of? It's human nature. It's what we learn from. However, these things can haunt us forever. Sometimes we do what we are not even aware we are capable of, only to leave us guilt ridden and shameful. I have done many things I wish I could take back, but, those experiences made me...

    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'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...

    I think my friends found out about it today.

    They didn't say anything but it's written all over their faces. So, chances are they're going to start avoiding me. I would be lying if I said that I don't care what they think of me. I do, it's bothering me a lot and it's making me feel anxious.

    for no reason at all, makes me want to not be anti-social sometimes. It's not social anxiety, just a feeling of self-regret."

    Yeah. But the past is the past,

    and what's done with is done with. Don't forget about the past, but learn from it. The past is what made you into who you're today. Focus on who you are today, and worry about who you want to be in the future.

    I used to self harm. Not
