I Have Regrets

    My boyfriend and I broke up a few days ago

    for two reasons (should be one though). The first reason is that he treated me like shiit and accused me of cheating. The second reason is because I believe he was a catfish. Now, I have my reasons for thinking he was and I just couldn't continue that relationship; even though I...

    We were young and I was too dumb.

    I couldn't see past my own limits and preconceptions. Looking back I probably didn't think I was good enough. And now, she's just a memory, far away, the scent of her hair lost forever to me.

    I Regret This.

    When I was 12, I told my grandmother that I hated her dog and that her egg salad was gross. She never recovered.

    Like everyone else. But I don't want to fix

    them, things are the way they are now. Even if my life turned a little chaotic, since it's been several months, it's not so bad any more, yet a lot of things aren't getting changed for the better, I just have to accept that. Even though many things stay the same, some change, in...

    I had been living on my own

    since 18, and at 19 I was ready to buy my first car. I had a couple thousand saved, but not quite enough for the car I wanted. My mother told me that my uncle had set aside some money for me, and that I should reach out to him. I was never really close with my small family...

    I was just thinking about my regrets.

    I think the best thing I can do is to continue to live a good life and stick with people who will treat me in a somewhat normal and predictable way. I don't want to step back into the spider's web just because I feel guilty.

    My twenties could be considered my wasted

    decade. Well, not the whole decade but the first half of it could be said to be a loss. I was aimless and lost, turning inward. It was the age of chat rooms and I frequented them to help me feel like I was alive. During that time I ended up meeting a girl from Florida who...

    them. I think the generalized sensation of EP is that there's a trace amount of hope that stirs up when you see a few ridiculously funny posts here... And you think "This is what I was looking for! A place to chill!" But as it stands EP is hardly that. To be yourself you must...

    into a frenzy like you did. You are dead to me now. Thank God you let me go. I can honestly say I wasted two months giving myself mercilessly to you. Thank you for the lesson you taught me and I release you with love x

    My beloved grandma passed away yesterday

    Sometimes, I feel like I just wasted my life

    as a teenager. I never did things normal teens do. I'm the kind whose life just revolve around home and school. Acads was my priority which is not bad, actually. However, I wasn't able to do many things because I would just choose to stay home and study rather than to go out and...

    It's funny how one little mistake,

    can impact the rest of your life. It's even more funny, when that so called, "mistake", shouldn't even have been a mistake in the first place. Such an innocent thing, getting twisted and made into something horrible, by someone else. It isn't fair, that I'm stuck with a...

    I have many regrets of several situations

    and interactions i had with people during my years of life. Mistakes, regrets, things I wish I had not said or done. Most of those regrets are petty small things, but I still remember them. One flaw I have is that I am very unforgiving with myself so letting go those regrets is...

    When I was in my 20's,

    I was reminded today.

    ..that sometimes the hardest thing a person can do is to forgive themselves. It can be easy to have regrets and hold on to them...even for what seems like good intentions. And it can be easy to hold on to the feelings of guilt and shame and worry and everything that goes with...

    I have regrets but none more

    so than not dressing more when I was younger! I can not properly express how much I regret this. It seems like it is with me all the time. So many things make me think 'what if'. I don't like feeling like this, not at all, but I don't know how to break it/fix it/come to terms...

    Regret is one of those things most people have

    whether it's over eating or spending too much money, but has anyone ever had a regret that is so powerful it haunts you almost endlessly? One that just crumbles the very foundation you use for support and just makes it feel like you are walking on a sheet of thin ice and hoping...
