I have a few things I still feel guilty about, that still haunts me. One and the most recent, I lost my job and couldn’t take my dog to the vet and he ended up dying. He’d probably still be with me if I could have taken him. I feel like I failed him, it’s only been a year but it eats at me at night and just typing this makes me misty eyed.
2) When I was a kid, mom told me I was in trouble when my dad came home. I said I hoped he never came home… not because I didn’t love him, not because I wanted anything bad to happen, I didn’t mean it; just didn’t want to be in trouble.
He either heard me when I said it, or mom told him but it really hurt his feelings and I felt terrible about it.
