    My Biggest Mistake of Them All

    Excluding my past addiction, my biggest mistake was after my divorce wanting my children to have a relationship with their father.  I did everything I could for him to spend time with them.    I didn't have a relationship with my father and didn't want my...

    I feel like life takes us on a journey,

    whether a good or bad journey we are supposed to learn from. I have able to put things and people I perspective...until lately. I feel like nothing is working. Not my career, not my marriage, nothing. My children are all I hold onto with dear life. I've started chatting with men...

    Obviously- but lately I've been making a lot of

    them. Most involving love. Everything gets so complicated... it's no longer black and white- but shades of gray. No one even knows about them- and I can hardly admit it to myself.

    Too Many To Count

    A Huge Misunderstanding

    I moved to a new city with my husband recently...I love it here and all but I have very few friends. I was always use to hanging out and doing stuff with my girlfriends back home. I stumbled onto a website to make some new friends since it is a little hard for me to make new...

    Yesterday, I accidentally caused an argument.

    The story's too long to post here, but I feel horrible about it, and I can't get it off my mind. Mainly because two very close friends are disappointed in me. I think one cam't even look at me right now. I really didn't mean for this to happen, and I swear I'll never do it again...

    Lessons Learned

    As human beings, we are fallible creatures. My belief is that the mistakes we make along the way, will only help us to grow and mature. The important part, of course, is that we learn from those lessons that life has dealt us. None of us are perfect, far from it. I make mistakes...

    You just have to accept it. I know, easier said than done. I know it's hard to accept that sometimes, mistakes have to be made. No-one's perfect. But sometimes, you just feel like you have to be, even though that's impossible.

    Pretty much everything I do are mistakes,

    and I can't help it. No matter what, to the people that mean the most to me I just mess up.

    and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.” ― Marilyn Monroe

    It's my temper which helps me make my mistakes.

    The worst part is that I hurt the person who had nothing to do with me being angry. Cindy, I'm sorry

    We All Do

    Mistakes are bound to happen no matter how hard we try to avoid them. The best we can do it learn from our mistakes, and try not to repeat them. It's simple as that.

    When you get irritated with somebody you love,

    you can either ignore them or tell yourself that they don't mean it, cuz nobody is perfect so you just keep going cuz that's love, and you see past that so it puts all the pressure on yourself that you have to be perfect or else that person you love will get upset with you and...
