I Have Done Things That I'm Not Proud Of

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,690 People

    I am a breathing contradiction of myself all

    the time, a confused bundle of emotions laced with false demands and imaginary lines in the sand. Becoming myself is painful, but beautiful. I've let bad people steal my life, but I am no longer sleeping with the enemy.

    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...

    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.

    But it sucks a lot. I gave my virginity to a boy who told me we were getting married... stupid, right? Well I believed him. I got HPV from him, since he was sleeping with several other girls at the same time as our relationship. It ruined me emotionally and all I did was cry for...

    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...

    As an oldest sibling,

    I have found that parents hold us to a particular standard. And generally, younger siblings look up to the older ones, and parents tell them to be as accomplished as the former. However, in my case, that is not so. I actually overhead my parents telling my siblings not to grow...

    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...
