    I said bomb on an airplane by accident.

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

    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 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.
