I Made a Big Mistake

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 196 People

    I once went to P.F. Chang's

    for supper with a group of friends. I had a really good time there, until I had driven well away from the restaurant. That's when I realized I forgot to give the waiter an extra $5 for the tip. I felt really bad about it, but it was too late to do anything. I also feel like I...

    I Wish I Could Take It Back!

    I quit softball today and now I feel like crap. I blew a once in a lifetime chance, a freshman on a varsity team. I felt out of place, I felt like I didn't belong. I wasn't ready for all the hard work that comes along with being on a varsity team. I didn't have any actual friends...

    Be Careful What You Wish For.

    I asked God to send me someone to love.   And he said yes.   This was possibly the worst mistake of my life. But I learned a valuable lesson: Never wish, lest you get what you ask for.

    I hate feeling shame.

    I hate feeling like this. I don't want to be judged. I am already judging myself but I don't know what else to do. I need to get it out somehow. I have always had feelings for this guy. It has never been the right time. One of us would be in a relationship and vise versa...

    The Worst Mistake I Have Ever Made...

    March 15, 2011. I decided to make a fake account on the internet with a fake name, age, and life story. Biggest mistake of my life. I lost my relationship with God because of it. It was less than a week before I was baptized, and I lost my relationship through sin. I don't know...

    The Best Policy

    Figured I would give this a shot. I would say this is a recent experience, but it is not. It happened a few month's ago. I am kind of getting over it. Just distracting myself. Anyway enough of that. When it comes to relationships honesty is the best policy. Seems like common...

    Yeah.. I know we all do that

    and that's why no one is perfect.. I screwed everything up. Just when I finally found someone worth living for, I choose the wrong way. Lying? Acceptable in some cases, but if you're aware of it and someone gives you a chance to "reveal" it yourself then you should take that...

    I was reading something online

    and I was engrossed in its contents when someone came in. I hate being interrupted while reading, plus the TV was on high and I hated loud noises. I ended up being in a bad mood quickly and yelled out "I Don't Care" to their questions.

    Too Big To Fix?

    I'm an avid blogger; I usually write my thoughts and feelings publicly. This one, however, cannot be as "public" as the rest. No one knows who I am, here. No one can point a finger and say "I told you so." Four years ago, I let go of my husband, the man I loved more than anything...
