    There Are Days I Wish

    There are days that I wish I could erase all the bad things I have done in life that hurt people. Not the things I did with a lot of thought before acting, but the things I did without any thought to how my actions would impact their lives. God sometimes give us a second...

    Regrets

    There are a lot of things I regret doing in life. The thing I regret the most would have to be the drinking, though. The first time I had beer was in kindergarten although after that first time I stopped until I was twelve. I drank occasionally until I was thirteen when I...

    Who Hasn'T?

    In my younger days, I was even stupider than I am now. I loved the thrill of danger. I did a few more drugs than I probably should have. The same applies to women. It made me who I am today. Without that life, I wouldn't have my kids, though. God truly can use evil to show his...

    Why Did I Do Those Things? To This Day I Don't Entirely Know.

    When I was in my early twenties I was in a dark place…a mental wasteland… because I allowed myself to get involved in situations in which I was sexually and mentally abused. I have never been really able to say why exactly I behaved that way. I was not abused as a child...

    Let Them Go

    I have done so many bad things. They make me feel dirty. Tainted. Worthless. I hate myself for doing them and I still havent forgiven myself. I don't know if i ever will. This is something i will carry, as a way of redemption. As a reminder of how ugly I can really be.

    How Can I Be So Stupid?!

    Back when I thought I knew everything and didn't care about all of it. I used to let people take advantage of my body. I don't even care if we just met or if they've been a long friend of mine but for all I care is that I don't. I don't even want a serious relationship before...

    Of Course, Many Things.

    Who hasn't? I dare you to find one person who hasn't ever looked back on something with regret and shame. I'm not going to delve into my mistakes right now (it would take far too long). But I will say that guilt is a double-edged sword. When wallowed in, it's a pointless emotion...

    I have done A LOT of things i'm not proud of,

    but the thing i regret most was being blinded by love. I loved someone too much that I would do anything for her, ANYTHING. Now that I look back I can't believe how taken advantage of I was.

    As an oldest sibling,
