    Yes, the longer we are apart, the more I know that this was a mistake.  It was a facade.  I spent the last year trying to squeeze you into the perfect mold.  I thought when my ex left the picture, we could really grow.  How could I be that wrong?  I know now why I was torn...

    Lots of

    I've made lots of mistakes. A lot because I experienced things by myself, and wasn't really raised, before the age of 12. So 12 to be raised, it's nearly ******. The hard way so. I learnt from it. To be careful. To forgive too, so it seems I'm able to love a little now. I'm still...

    Social & Relational, But I Knew I Would From The Outset.

    And it's all because I really do not understand people, especially women. My social development is way behind, partly because of isolation at key moments, but mostly because so often, I just do not get it. I fail to understand what people say, filter it out, or force it into...

    I Have Made Mistakes!

    I have made so many mistakes in my lifetime. I've said the wrong words at the wrong times. I've lied. I've made mistakes that led to people hurting me. I haven't been aware of all things that I should have been. I've made mistakes that have led people to being hurt, emotionally...

    Everyone Has

    I have made lots of mistakes throughout the course of my life. I believe there is no shame in this- the only shame would be to not have learned from those mistakes. And I believe I have learned from them, for the most part. That's not to say I don't have patterns I repeat that...

    Of Course I Am Human

    Yes I have made mistakes. Heaps of them in fact, some serious, some not so much.But I think the thing people need to realise, is that every single one of us makes mistakes. There is no point dwelling on a mistake I don't think, you shouldn't forget it, but you should learn from...

    A lot of them. Too many to count.

    I've lied to the people I care about. I've ruined any chance of having a normal life. I've alienated my friends. I have ruined two families. I've ruined a marriage. I've hurt people with my words. I've hurt myself. I've ignored good advice. What's wrong with me? This is therapy...

    Scully!!!

    You sound like a good person who has a conscience. You are probably too hard on yourself. We are human after all, and bound to make mistakes. I was an abused child, in more than one way, and I have made HUGE mistakes that I can never take back. But I've learned so much about...

    But A Mistake Isn't A Mistake Forever

    When you LEARN from your mistakes, they turn into a blessing, and then they are no longer a mistake. We HAVE to make mistakes, they are a blessing already even BEFORE we learn from them. Without mistakes, how could we learn anything?

    So, I made a lot of mistakes this year; I had

    cancer a couple of years ago, and it came after turning down the job I had wanted my entire young adult life. I spent a year saving up enough money so I could move back, or try something new, just to feel like I'd have another shot. Then I wound up dating a close friend, who I...

    Lots & Lots & Lots...............

    But that's okay.....I figure it just proves I'm human. Mahahahah! I know for a fact that I'll probably make a whole bunch more before I leave this world. That's okay too, as long as I don't keep making the same ones.... That'll just get real old, real fast. Mahahahaha!
