    The Worst Mistake Of My Life

    was leaving behind a woman I truly loved for a job.  I really thought she would follow me, but she didn't, and I don't blame her because I handled it badly.  Now four years have passed, I'm 40, and I'm all alone and still miss her terribly, but she has moved on, and she...

    Letting Her Go

    I should have never let my ex girlfriend walk out the door. I deserved for her to leave me. I didn't deserve her and sometimes I still think I don't. I've spent the last 2 years replaying that night over and over in my head. Between the alcohol and lack of sleep I should have...

    Worst Mistake

    The worst mistake I made was the one night I cheated on my boyfriend. We probably weren't meant to be, but I am the biggest coward and feel so much shame for doing that. I should have not done it. There's no excuse, even if I was drunk. He'll never be the same, I will never be tr...
