    I hate myself. I reject gods forgiveness.

    I have made a lot of mistakes in life , from 6 yrs old onward. Family is distant. This saddens me and further confirms I should hate me.

    That moment when you remember something you did

    or said and just want to hit yourself. Hard. With a brick.

    'instances' are from relationships or from relationship attempts?

    Isaac Newton

    Doesn't do to spend too long dwelling on past

    mistakes. Just say to yourself that there are some situations where you need to ask for help rather than go blindly along.

    Actually, ...

    ...when I really stop and think about it, I'm amazed I'm still alive, have kept most of my body parts, and am able to use all my senses. If I ever had a teenage daughter who I ended up finding out did some of the things I'd done, she'd have given me a massive coronary.
