    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...

    "Which is the heart that would not wish to

    possess virtue! It's what everybody desires. But how few are those who accept to fall, to be weak, who are content to find themselves down and out and have others find them in that condition!" - St. Therese of Lisieux

    You

    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...

    Truth & Reconciliation

    About a year and a half ago I got my heart broken. My first real heartbreak in my life. Being only fifteen years old at the time I wasn't really sure how to deal with things and naturally I basically lost my mind. I had to face the girl that had basically stomped on my heart with...

    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?

    I remember it well. I was my old Drmusic2

    Missed Oppurtunity

    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...

    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!

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Last year really in the year I went to the

    hospital for chest pain. I was there for half a day. They couldn't find anything so towards night they tried one last thing. They gave me a ct scan and said I might have a blood clot in my heart. I probably was never more scared. So I started dieting the next day. Fast forward...
