Today’s Secret Regret

“I regret allowing circumstances of the past affect me today. Once my mother found my diary when I was around 12 or 13, while I was at school. When I came home from school, I was excited to put my new entry in, but I could not find it. My mother came into my room and scolded me telling me how horrible I was. It was deeply ingrained so I do not recall the details but I still vow never to write down my inner feelings ever again so someone may “open the book” and read them. It makes me feel like who I am inside is not good enough and needs fixed somehow. To this day I cannot seem to shake the idea that my inner feelings are forbidden or wrong somehow. I deeply wish I could find out how to release this and let it go.”

  1. It might be a good idea to speak to a professional therapist. By the way, your mother was wrong to read your diary and also wrong to put you down for your feelings expressed in the diary. Try to find a therapist who will help you deal with this , put it in perspective and move on with confidence.
