    Pain&Amp; Guilt

    I've done things that have been regretful and have filled me with pain. Every day I wish I could take them back and start all over.

    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.

    Proud

    I believe everyone has done things they are not proud of. That is part of growing up, learning from our mistakes.

    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...

    I Have Things Im Not Proud Of, But I Am Proud Of Me

    I am a strong person. I am a survivor. There are plenty of things I'm not proud of. I have judged people, before giving them a chance. I have been a hypocrite and I hate them. I have lied about things I should never have. I have dug myself a few deep holes and had to figure out...

    Regrets

    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...

    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.

    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...

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

    How Far Can You Go In Order To Protect Yourself?

    I lied, I was wearing a mask, I pretended that I care about certain people in my life. It was not a good thing, and I knew it. And I am not proud of it. But it was the only way to survive against a severe danger. Some people say " better die standing than live kneeling". But...
