    No, not really. I’m no saint, but my past failures as a human being have helped make me into the decent person I am today.

    I was a bit of a bully in high school and I absolutely regret it. There was no excuse for me to be like that, especially since I’d been the victim of bullying as well.

    Yes, but usually it’s when I remember back yesterday and realize something I said sounded really rude, even though I didn’t mean for it to sound rude.  I am an idiot with my words!!

    @Bunny_the_Bride:  I don’t think it’s ever ‘too late’ to apologize – so, yes, IMO, you did the right thing!

    @Bunny_the_Bride:  I think you definitely did the right thing, I guess you could kinda say I’m in the same position as your old friend, waiting for that one true apology from my old best friend. Still haven’t received it, maybe one day. I don’t know that it would make us BFF’s again, but it would be nice. So good for you, that’s something most people would just brush off, and say “eh nevermind, it’s been so long anyway!”

    Also, as for that “other” inbox, I’ve had FB for like too many years and just like 2 days ago realized it was there, had like 4 messages from like 3-4 years ago in it lol. So you never know, she still might just not have seen it.

    @Laurenplusalex:  +1. There is stuff that hurts and stuff that I sometimes wish I never had to go through (or put someone else through) but I’ve learned from my mistakes. Experience is a tough teacher but usually the best one.

    I think it really shows of your character that you took the time to send her a heart felt message.  I’ve done the same in the past.  The only reason you are questioning it is because it makes you vulnerable but in all the right ways.  I applaude you!

    Not many, but i can think of one. When i was in seventh grade I turned down a date with a guy from school because I knew my friends wouldn’t approve because he wasn’t “cool”. In the next year or two I came to realize that being popular was miserable and I embraced my nerdiness. But looking back, that guy was totally my type. I chalk it up to young idiocy about wanting to be popular and caring what other people think. But at least I got over that pretty quickly after that!

    @Bunny_the_Bride:  I ruined a friendship, because I handled a situation with my friend who was doing drugs, with no empathy or respect for her as a person and a friend. I regret how I acted, and how the friendship ended, and although, I’ve not talked to her in more than a year, amd it’s only been in the last 6 months, I realize how much of a D-bag I was.
