So he left because he saw the real you. I'm sorry to inform you, but people like that don't end up well in life. You need to think of other peoples feelings too . Lieing and stealing leaves you with nobody to lean on when you need help.
Yes it was wrong. If I could go back in time I would never have done it. I do not steal from people and I try my best to make good decisions and be a darn good person in this world. I am not perfect and while I took advantage of that guy, he got what he wanted out of the situation which was to date me. He gave me the money to keep me away from my ex, who he was afraid I would have gone back to. So he had his own ulterior motive for doing what he did.

I did not feel bad at the time, but after the fact I had to come to terms with the awful thing I did and I had to ask the universe for forgiveness.
Nevertheless, it is water under the bridge now. I have given things to people who have taken advantage of me and I let it go because what goes around comes around as it has for me I'm sure.

People make mistakes. It's those who don't learn from them or claim to be perfect and all mighty who really don't have much to offer.

It is hard not to judge others with a story like that. But you have made your apologies to the universe and have paid your dues. I respect that.

Everyone does things that are wrong at times. I feel guilty about things I've done though....but if they were things I did back when I was immature (like say in highschool) I tend to cut myself a little slack in recognizing that I'm not perfect.

I try to learn from my mistakes and not continue to beat myself up over them as much....life is too short.

Heck, I've made mistakes I recognize over recent years although unintentional in nature, I have my regrets. I try to do better and yes in some cases I feel guilty and in others I recognize that I just made a mistake...didn't do the right thing but well....I'm trying.

There's a lot of truth to that.

Yes, the universe with it's grand karma forgives.

High and mighty I am not, but I've had some seriously wrong sh*t said/done before, I hardly think they ended up in traction. I don't recall winning the lotto recently after either..Wrong things are done by people, rationalized away, usually with ongoing rewards in reality. I like those that actually feel guilt for doing them, rather than just saying 'they had it coming'. How exactly do they know, did they live the other's life? *shrug*

I'm so going to need more barf bags.

Thank you. Even a degenerate like myself can find redemption. :-)

Hm... I found out my ex husband was cheating in the worst way.... I was reading the newspaper at work one day, and was reading through the birth announcements published there (hey - it was a small town) and I came upon an announcement with his name and my 15 year old neighbors name.

He has a very very unique name.

So...

After I removed every single bit of his posessions out of the house, I folded them neatly, put them into trash bags and boxes, and called his father to come get his stuff (apparently everyone in HIS family knew about it except me) I changed the locks, had his name removed from the lease, etc.

Then... what I do not feel guilty about to this day - I called his younger brother over to finish a bottle of Jose Cuervo Tequila Gold with me.

Yep.
