I Have Made a Mistake

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 247 People

    Understatement Of All Time...

    I've made so many mistakes they're uncountable...maybe for convenience I'll try to roll them into one big ball and give it a title. On second thought, not a good idea, there's probably some value to diversification. Just one might weigh too much....

    I said bomb on an airplane by accident.

    I was a little drunk. But luckily the plane engines were so loud no one noticed.

    I married my first boyfriend 3 years ago.

    even when I was walking down the aisle I felt like I was making a mistake. I'm not unhappy with him, I just feel like I was too young and didn't get to experience a lot of things that people in their 20s do, and now I never will. I feel a little trapped sometimes.

    One thing I really regret is pushing people

    away. I've realized I missed out on great opportunities and I may never be able to have another chance. My insecurities and my past convinced me into thinking that I'm not worthy of having friends...and because of this, I've learned to be content with loneliness.

    I earlier mis-stated the name of a rock band.

    I posted a response saying that I went to see a "Guns & Roses" concert. My mistake was that the name of the band is not "Guns & Roses, but "Poison". I was thinking of the song, "Every Rose has its thorn", which Vince Neil sang live in concert, and the band had the picture of...

    It's no fun to be reminded of the mistakes we make in life, but if we can look back on those mistakes and realize we have learned from them then it's easier to forgive ourselves.
