    Right, thanks :) Even if other people can't let me live down my mistakes, I know God always will. That's much more important. Thanks, both of you :) I really needed to hear that

    Yeah Leblonk, you're right. Completely. And totally. Right.

    All God asks for is for you to say you're sorry, and boom, you're forgiven, like that. Even if you fail a second time, he forgives you. And if you fail a third time, he forgives you. I could go on infinitely. But I won't because that would be too long of a comment.

    There's a bible verse-gosh I forget what it is and the exact words-and in it Jesus says something to the effect of, "So I say to you, do not forgive someone seven times, but seventy-times seven." At the time, seven was the ultimate number. So Jesus was talking about infinity times infinity essentially. God follows his rules. Just remember that :D

    Don't feel like you're overreacting, you've really helped me out several times. Thank you, it means so much to me.
    I try to just stop and pray and repent whenever I feel this way, because I know God has forgiven me for everything, but sometimes I just get dragged down again. Like in that song Slow Fade by Casting Crowns- "be careful if you think you stand; you just might be sinking." I try to stay in control but it's hard. I've been asking God to take control and keep me on my feet, because I know I'll be fine, I'm just frustrated when I keep choosing wrong.

    Look, we all have regrets. I've had hardly any opportunity to screw up, but I still manages it. It just happens, because we are basically sinful, and have no good of ourselves alone. True to form, Here's a link to a song, which addresses that feeling. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FWMebzGZGZc
    There is no such thing as too many mistakes for God to forgive.
    There's a section in a book called Screwtape Letters that says the safest road to Hell is the gradual one--the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts. It's when we don't notice that it's the most deadly. When we do notice, then the devil weighs in on us with despair (trust me, I speak from experience). God does not call for despair. If you are convicted of your sins and mistakes, and it leads to repentance, that's fine, it's of God. But Guilt is from the Devil, and is used to create a wedge between us and God, because the guiltier we feel, the less we are going to want to confront the God of justice.
    That went on a bit longer than I meant it to, and I'm probably overreacting, but I hope you see the point.

    I wish that was true x) It's like I'm barely fit to exist, like I'm just expected to be as dumb as I am and no matter how much I believe in myself I get proven wrong. Like I should've known better. I just have a hard time forgiving myself, I guess. I just keep flashing back to things I wish I could've changed throughout the day and it doesn't help.

    Awww...well, sometimes it's hard for me to get over mistakes I make. That's what I get I guess.
    Aww, I'm sure you don't mess everything up!

    I know, but...do you ever feel like you've made too many? Like, more than almost anyone else?
    I just seem to screw everything up. It's really frustrating.

    Well, I figured it all had to be about something X)
    Oh. Well, we all make mistakes. We're human after all. Human's make mistakes.
    Well that's good. I was worried there for a moment :D

    Yeah, each of the stanzas are about completely different things x)
    I've just been regretting a lot lately. I've made tons of mistakes the past four years (at least). I'm just it a bad place right now. I'll be alright though, we all get down sometimes :)

    "Huh? Wait wait wait, wha?"
    That's what was running through my head as I read that.
    Are you okay?
