I Make Poor Decisions

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 100 People

    I can't let the little stuff go.

    Today I was angry just because a driver cut me off and it ruined my whole day. I yelled at my boyfriend and made him feel worthless. I'm a terrible person.

    "Argh how am I going to pay

    for this!" - after I win something and feeling stressed. "I'll bid on this"- immediately after the previous and following through with a bid. I have such a low iq it isn't funny..

    I Do

    Sometimes I make poor choices and have to live my life dealing with the consequences of these. I think we all do this to some extent.

    Strangely looking back I'm starting to question

    myself. I threw my keys into the bowl though. Don't know if I care. I am feeling completely set free. Forget about my cards. Just come over. I'm waiting unveiled for the twist. No matter how it begins. I know someone taught me how. So in time it will destruct.

    Okay, Duhhh?

    I am an idiot, though! Nine times out of ten, I know the right decision! I will still make the wrong ones against my better judgement. I don't know if I'm just a glutton for punishment or what. Probably a multitude of reasons. One day, I may learn.
