I've always been great with children. I used to nanny and do summer camps etc. however when I got my first job in a preschool things were out of control. we were under staffed and I got EXTEREMLY overwhelmed. I was so stressed and overstimulated. Most of the children were great/ easy to work with, but these 2 problem children drove me crazy. I engaged in power struggles with them and would sometimes be stubborn or insist on the rules rather than be gentle and allow this little overwhelmed child to have some control over their environment. I would get angry and after asking them multiple times I would just snatch the toys from their hands. I would glare at them. I used my firm voice alot. One of them he would get angry at me and cry and I would just stare at him. Thankfully my coworker would always jump in to comfort him. I keep replaying these moments and thinking about what I could have done better. for example allowing him some space and time to transition to other activities while the other children went ahead. It was a bad time in my life, I was not eating at the time FOR 12+ hours ( I had an ED) I had major issues in my own life and I got so overwhelmed with everything. I never got a break. but also its not fair to a little child. For the most part I liked that place because the other children were great and I did try to do better everyday. Hearing them laugh when I organize a game for them always warmed my heart. I did put alot of effort in their activities and games. I used to buy outdoor toys from my own money. But god that period of time was alot for me. The memories of the bad times made me feel like shit. I feel so gross and disgusted with myself. I am embarrassed of myself. it makes me ashamed to look at my coworkers. it makes me not want to work with children ever again. I cannot stop thinking about it. it keeps me up at night
I was horrible to children at my first preschool job

Hello everyone, I'm probably going to be made a laugh of but here goes nothing, I'm into girls but I crave a companion ship with a guy, I've never gotten a boner to a guy basically, in school I had no friends not even anyone I'd hang out with, anytime I see two dudes playing games together or just shooting the shit i fantasise about hangin with them, god that sounds pathetic to say, I just really want some boys to chill with, most dudes are fantasizing about getting with a girl and here i am fantasizing about drinking skate boarding and just doing mischievous things with a group of homies, I haven't even lost my kissginity yet (is that a word?) And I haven't even processed that yet because I've missed out on the most normal part of being a teenager, I'm going to be brutally honest here and I'm not trying to sound edgy but the only guy I talk to on the regular is my plug, that's it ig, thanks for reading.
I have 0 friends and now I fantasies about having friends

My son is 20 and he does have a sex life. I ask him for details about it and he says "I would rather not tell you details about my sex life just know it is enjoyable and I am using protection." But that wasn't good enough for me I had to know the details. My husband said "You should mind your own business he is an adult and I personally don't want to know what he does or what happens to him." But he's my son I have to know the details. So I went into his apartment when he wasn't there and installed a video a camera and a bug so I could watch him. I saw that he has a 46 year old girlfriend for FWB partner and they were having sex and she was saying "Do you like it when mommy does this" and he replied "Yes mommy I do please dominate me mommy" It grossed me out! I can't get it out my head. I told my husband and he said "You brought this on yourself I told you you might find something out you don't want to know." I feel like I may have invaded his privacy a little, did I?
I set up cameras in my son's apartment and watched him have sex?

I did one of the most immoral things that I could ever be ashamed of last May and that was driving while still a little faded from smoking marijuana with some friends. I always promised myself that I would never drive inebriated and that that was a terrible thing to do, but I thought I felt sober enough to drive but I don't think that I actually was. I pressured myself into leaving because I thought my friends would wanted to go home. My reaction time was poor and I almost bumped a parked car on the way home. I'm trying to settle this in my head, I feel so terrible about it. I know that I'll just do everything in my power to keep this from ever becoming a possibility in the future but I still feel awful that I did it. One of my SO's friends and her little brother died when she got hit by a truck driver lighting a bowl and I feel like I betrayed her. I'm so sorry, I feel like I let everyone down, her down, and myself down.
I drove while a little high and it's something I always promised myself that I'd never do.

So for a long time I had a problem with stealing money from my family. I stole $70 from my dad just to add money to my school lunch account in middle school,$20 from my little brother to go shopping with my friends, and about 4 years ago I wanted to go to the mall to go shopping at my favorite store. But I was broke. So I went into my sister’s room and went into her bank and grabbed $200 worth of dollar bills from her piggy bank that was shaped as a crayon. And I moved the rest of the money left around to make it look like nothing was stolen. So after I stole it and went to the mall I bought a lot of things. And my parents were suspicious of how I was able to buy all of the items seeming as to how expensive that store’s items are. Since that store always has some sale/deals going on, I used that as an excuse to how I got all of the items. Making it seem like it was cheaper than it was actually. I used the “do you want to see the receipt for proof” so they would believe me. Then when my sister was going to take her money to buy something she noticed how she was missing some money, and I was questioned about it and lied again. Using the same excuse. She was so upset and my parents were furious and I was so afraid of my dad that I did whatever I could to seem innocent. Even saying how bad I felt for her and how horrible whoever stole her money is. I want to tell her but I would rather not have to deal with that. I stole$200 from my little sister to go shopping and lied about it

In the early to mid-1990s I worked for a family owned company, everyone was really nice, great place to work. However, at some point, one of the owners got married to a woman who was really nasty and they decided that she should work for the family business. While she technically had no authority, she was just bitter and mean. She'd would make arbitrary office rules that nobody wanted to challenge because, we'll, she's an owners wife. Being a generally unhappy person, she seemed bent on making everyone miserable. She was also quite heavy, and it was during the liquid diet fad phase so she would pound these chocolate slimfast shakes all day long before having her one real food meal at home later. I was a just a slim teenager trying to lift weights and get huge, so I would drink mass gainer shakes before bed (also big in the 90s). One day after she called the staff out to the main room and screamed and spit at us for something inconsequential, my buddies and I made a plan to slowly cut more and more weight gainer powder into her slimfast cans to the point where it was 75% whatever carb-loaded chocolate sugar powder I was drinking. She loved them. She could also be overhead complaining about gaining weight no matter what she tried for the next several weeks. The reason this is a confession and not a revenge, is that 15 years later she reached out to me on social media and we started chatting. This time, she was remarried and no longer mean. Turns out she was in a bad marriage with the owner, which she was taking out on us being a bit immature in her 20s. I being older and wiser myself, realized that as a teenager all I saw was angry bitch, and I was the asshole. So... confession to you all, but she'll never know. Edit: Changed months of complaining to weeks, we pulled this all off in a single night and ton of containers she kept at the office. She must have gone through it after a good month, we didn't keep track of how fast she drank it, but she always seemed to have it in her hand. Edit2: Thank you for the award!
In the mid 90's I might have made my "boss" extra fat.
