conspiracy

sorry i fired you tim my friend. please forgive me.

Oh dear…the whores back

I once got incredibly drunk with my friends boyfriend one night and we ended up having sex. I felt so bad that I continued drinking like some mental alcolic for the next few days until I confessed all my devious activity to my entire family in a drunken and highly emotional state until I passed out in my own vomit. Some would say I’m a pretty classy girl.

Unintentionally second-raping a friend

I repeatedly spoke about my experience of being raped-as a joke, at a bar, because odd as it seems, at that time, it was my way of coping and reaching out. What makes it a terrible action is that I did this in the presence of a friend who survived intense domestic violence and sexual assault and was still recovering. I didn’t intend to hurt her, nor did I ever refer to any other experience than my own but I should have been more considerate not to talk about it in front of her. Although I wasn’t speaking directly to her, I did make her depression worse and triggered her trauma. The worst part is that I didn’t even notice that I did this until I asked her why we seemed to be drifting apart, and she pointed out to me the emotional pain she experienced from my actions. We are colleagues, but we can no longer be friends anymore because of what I did-and I am too selfish to make the descision to move to another workplace.

Liar liar

I make up really awful and really bad lies about myself to be more interesting or get sympathy. Deaths, cancer, heritage you name it I’ve probably told it. It’s the thing I hate most about myself, its so so wrong, and some of the lies I now have to keep up with otherwise I would lose everyone in my life. I feel constant anxiety that the world around me will collapse, but it’s my own making.

The Patient, The Passionate, and the Cheater.

I once cheated on a man I loved who was steady and patient and kind with a man who was passionate and exciting and smelled like sage. My boyfriend forgave me for everything when I told him the truth. He still loved me in his quiet, sturdy way. I broke his heart a short time later. As anyone could have guessed, things didn’t work out with the man who smelled like sage either.

Secret Sex

I broke up with a guy & it devastated him. He said he loved me and was an emotional wreck when I left. The next day, I slept with his best friend. We continue to hook up all the time in secret.

The Shakes

While babysitting my siblings they were acting up and wouldn’t listen. So I pretended to go into a seizures until they were crying out of concern. I’ve never actually had a seizure.

Bye Bye, Daddy

I had a friend in the fourth grade whose parents were tax evaders and conspiracy theorists. One day, I decided it would be funny to tell him that I had invited him over as part of a government plot to get him out of the house so the government could take away his parents.
It was not funny.
I still feel bad about that.
