Did something really bad

Postby bbright » Thu Sep 28, 2017 6:21 pm

So basically I f***ed up. I did something that i don't remember when i was drunk, but I was told in the morning what i did and its just awful. Im going to lose my girlfriend, lose my best friends, lose everyone (hopefully family will be there for me... i dont know yet) which i deserve, and I'm in a foreign country for the next 3 months, so i won't be able to talk to anybody and have no one that I know here (not that that matters because no one would talk to me anyways). Im getting some pretty shitty dark thoughts at the moment, but like I dont want to act on them because I want to grow up and have a future with a family and kids and stuff. I dont want people to feel bad for me, because what i did doesn't deserve sympathy. whether i was drunk or not.... doesn't matter it still happened. I guarantee no one will want to see me ever again from who i know at the moment. Should i start fresh and move away from everyone? (I'm 19) or what should i do... I just have no idea.

People have literally killed people and moved past it to become respected members of a community. I doubt you murdered anyone.

You are 19. You think you will never do something you regret again in your life? Is that how you plan to handle regrets in life, by running, hiding, and "starting fresh" each time?

Running is an option, but learning to ask for forgiveness is the better path. It is the more difficult path, but the path that will lead you to a better sense of self, of being a stronger person that is capable of managing regret in ways other than running away.
