    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...

    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.

    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....

    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 have made a big mistake ,

    I wrongly used a word that was not at all appropriate . It may have caused hurt , if it did I am truly sorry. I hope you can forgive my poor choice of words.
