"thanks again- i just can't find it in my self to feel worthy enough to get over it. I feel as if I am a terrible, awful person. I did not mean anyharm and was not tryingto do anything to exert myself over anyone,I was simply lookingfor an experience- I know you may think otherwise but I know deep down this is the case, even if I can't fully acknowledge it."
happycaption says:
" Thanks for your response- I appercate it, though at this stage I'm not sure how to improve the way I feel about myself. I don't have a habit of acting in a way that is great uninhibited or at least to a point where it would cause any problems in 99% of the situations of going out and drinking I have been in. Certainly issues of self esteem and self perception are at the root of this, but I am getting tired,even with the help that councilling has provided me, of going on with my life in this manner. This seem utterly hopeless for me to improve this situation."
