    I feel so trapped in my own Life.

    I just don't know what to do at the moment, how can I be justified by my mistakes? A few months ago, I had used a debit card to make a few payment transactions. Unfortunately, the information of said card had been obtained by a stranger of some sort on the Internet, and he or...

    I changed grade because I thought people in my

    grade weren't loud and talkative, but it seems it was just because we didn't meet each others yet, but before I realized it, I asked my mum to talk to headmaster to switch me to other grade. Classmates here just take selfies, girls cling on guys and act soo popular and they all...

    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...

    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...

    I Don'T See How I Can Be Happy Again.

    Hi, I will keep the details vague. I was with the love of my life until about 3 hours ago when I confessed to having a drunken one night stand. This guy was the most fantastic and best thing to happen to me, I loved him completely and was preparing to move in with him. We had...

    I Am Just So Stupid.

    I am just so dreadfully stupid. I can't say what I did but it was just horrible. Every day that I make a mistake and it's everyday I lose some friends or, at least I feel like I do. I strive to improve myself but it is so ******* hard. The worst thing is that I don't...

    I suppose mine is different.

    I was actually called "the biggest mistake of my life" by the woman I wanted to spend my life with. I was always good and loyal to her, and never loved anyone more than her. And now it is over. I think my worst mistake was believing in her. It's a sad realization.

    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...

    The worst mistake I ever made was not running

    away from home when I was a kid and telling someone who would actually listen that my parents were physically, sexually, and emotionally abusing me. I had no perspective and didn't realize that this was not normal. They stole my self-confidence and turned me into a monster. I'm...
