    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...

    Sometimes I Don't Know How I've Survived

    I can think of a whole lot of things that I have done in my lifetime that I am not proud of doing. Some things, I am completely ashamed of; others, I just have to look back at and laugh about, because God only knows what I was thinking. To this day, I still wonder why I did them...

    My Take.

    i shared this already as a comment, but it really sums up how i feel on this issue, so i figured i'd make it my story. if you've never made mistakes then clearly you've been living your life too tentatively. and if you can't acknowledge that you've made mistakes then your head...

    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...

    Very long story, short

    when my grandmother died, she didn't have any life insurance and my mom lost the house. I had told my mom and uncle for years to make a plan, save some money, (they would find and spend any that I tried to save for them), and eventually we all had to go on our ways. My fiance...

    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.

    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.

    Only if you knew some of the things I've done.

    Surely they never hurt anyone, but it doesn't mean they are something to be proud of. We all have skeletons in our closets that, if seen, would greatly disappoint the people who love us.

    Yeah I have. But to be honest they are all

    learning opportunities for the human experience. They have helped to shape me into the individual that I have become today. So proud or not I wouldn't trade them for anything and would most likely repeat the same experiences. Actually I know I would.

    Everybody has done things they aren't proud of.

    Personally though I wouldn't change my past experiences because they have shaped me into who I am today. They have taught me what not to do and I have learned from them. I imagine that is just a part of growing up :)

    My Biggest Regret
