    Some mistakes are worth making.

    I sometime regret but then I tell myself " if there was no mistake in life , there would be no lesson, if no lesson no meaningful life".so we need a mistake to correct ourself, to be a better person.

    Yeah. I made a mistake.

    Once. It was back in '03. But it's even funnier than that. What happened was... I thought I was wrong about something... But I was right! lol Go figure.

    I have just turned 21 recently

    and I'm no where near where I visioned myself to be 10 years ago. Thanks to a critical mistake I made at the age of 20 I have literally hit rock bottom. I'm am so angry with myself.

    Have you ever had a conversation on here with

    someone and they made such bizarre statements you were intrigued? I just had an odd discussion, looked at her profile and the poor thing has declared that she is mentally ill. I would never have attempted to have a disagreement with her had I known that she was challenged...

    I Always Make Mistakes

    ...and I'm not ashamed to admit it, they have made me who I am today. They have helped me learn and grow in ways I wouldn't have if I hadn't made them.

    I've been working abroad the last few weeks

    and made disparaging remarks about my replacement to another colleague. I feel terrible as it was colossally unprofessional and my replacement is worthy of more respect.

    I slept with my ex. We just recently broke up

    and I'm not one to just jump into bed with a stranger so somehow I ended up going to his house and we slept together. It was a decent experience but I regret going over.

    Kids And Sex

    When I was a little child I knew some things about sex. At that time I thought men has to be always on top, and I thought women hated sex for many reasons… because they had to carry man’s heavy wait, they had to be kissed, they had to listen to dirty words. Women are weak...

    A couple weeks ago, I made a horrible mistake

    to my friend. I apologized the next day and she accepted the apology. It's been awhile since her and I spoke after that so today she told me that she really accepts my apology, I just shake my head and walk away. I feel like I made another mistake by doing that, I don't know.

    I fell in love with someone I shouldn't have.

    I keep going back to the moment when it happened to try and see if I could have stopped. But I can't find it. Suddenly he was in my heart, he left me no time to react, to think. His love makes me happy. But, it's also as a drug, sometimes it takes me high and then I go down...

    I made the worst mistake of my life. I cheated on the guy I really liked a lot, Chase, and he liked me a lot too I guess. But we weren't technically dating, so it doesn't actually count as cheating. But it still hurts. I didn't mean to, I was completely wasted and don't...
