    My Biggest Regret

    Just before my 10th birthday, I hung out with my two closest friends. One was my best friend and we had done everything together, since I moved there. We were even neighbors and could walk in and out of each other’s front door at any hour of the day. The other was kind of an...

    It was early 2010 and I lost the love of my

    life. I was just transferred to another store to work at and I guess you could say I was in a position of power (over most) and needed to get to know my fellow associates. While getting to know one of them, she was flirty and apparently recognized me from high school though I...

    I Lost Myself Along The Way...

    I have spent a lot of time over the past few months reflecting on how I managed to continue to stay in a relationship that in hindsight made me miserable and how I managed to give up so many pieces of myself in the process. And I say I gave away specifically because no one can...

    I used to have really bad anger issues

    and was very cruel to my boyfriend. I got shitfaced drunk all the time, a lot of the times I wouldn't remember the night/day before. I've hit him, pushed him, thrown things at him, grabbed him by the hair and was so verbally and emotionally abusive to him until he cried. The...

    I have done things I regret

    and I don't know if I can ever make it up. Sometimes I feel like there is something in me that is truly evil. v.v But I am constantly in internal conflict between good and evil, and I have trouble making the right decisions. I just needed to get that off my chest. Thank you...

    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...

    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 :)

    Do not enter a romantic relationship with this

    person. I am a sculptor chiseling and polishing, gouging and carving, shaping and naming. I will create a product fit for my consumption rather than bear the alienation encountered with mankind. I am clandestine indecision. I am phantasmagoria. I am a coward..

    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 have had two abortions.

    First when I was 19 and thought I was in love. He dumped me as soon as he found out. Second when I was 25 and he begged me to keep it. I was scared. Please don't judge me. I know I'm stupid and don't deserve to get pregnant again.

    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.

    I was raised in a small rural village in the

    50's. In my late teens and early youth I had no respect for "different" people. I mean, effeminate guys, disabled kids, ill mental elderly. I confess I bullied and harrased those people. I truly regret it now. We were so stupid then , thinking we were tough guys.
