    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...

    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...

    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.
