    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...

    Who hasn't ..........

    I regretted them. I owned up to them. I never ran from them. I tried to make amends when I could. I took full responsibility for them, even if it wasn't all mine.

    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...

    So, I'm new to this whole thing.

    But, I may as well get the big one off my chest first, huh?: I struggle daily with an addiction to ***********. I have since I was about 10. Even when I had a girlfriend who gave me all the love any one person could possibly muster, I jerked my way off through it all. And it's...

    When I was 12 years old I met a guy through a

    online game. Let's say his name was Eric. Eric was 17 years old, programmer and he was very nice to me. By time we got closer and closer friends. One day he asked me if I had snapchat, snapchat wasn't that popular in this time so I told him I didn't have it. He told me to...

    So I acted insecure around my girlfriend one

    night and ended up calling her like 40 times and of course the next day she came and got all her things and left. Dunno, hard to feel proud about how I acted especially due to the consequence. Would like to take that one back if I could.

    I really don't want to say much about my

    experience. I was in United States Air Force and almost created a international incident. This is back in 1999 I was having a conversation with a Turkish sergeant in the army/Air Force on the main gate. And he was asked me a question. Why is the military here. And this guy has...

    car with people who are also drunk. I didn't know what happened at first I just saw everyone hurt and the car totaled. The car had flipped and I wasn't wearing a seat belt, the only reason I wasn't hurt was because my boyfriend held me down to make sure I was safe, I feel like I...

    Despite doing things I'm not proud of I can't

    say that I regret doing them because these things made me a better and stronger person because I don't believe that you are learning if you don't make mistakes :)

    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...

    If it's something we have done

    or said, we all have things we are not proud of. What matters is how we deal with the consequences. you can never change the past.

    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...

    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...

    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 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?

    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.
