    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 Am Just So Stupid.

    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...

    First off, I am not trying to justify what I

    did. What I did was 100% wrong and I will completely take responsibility and accept any consequences. I am just trying to tell what happened from my perspective. So my mom has been purchasing cocaine for quite some time now, I know this because she told me & trusted me...

    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.

    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...

    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...

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

    I feel so trapped in my own Life.

    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...
