Hi there, I don't know if this is the right board for this. It's kind of a dumb problem but for some reason lately it's been getting me down. I've been feeling really guilty and depressed about teasing someone throughout primary and high school, and I'm in college right now. I never used to feel that way. I always felt bad that I had did it, but I've felt really terrible the last few days.
Basically it all started when someone pulled a prank on me a few days ago at college. It got me to thinking, "what did I do to anyone at college to deserve this prank?" The prank didn't really upset me, but I kept wondering if I had done something to somebody once. Then I started to think back earlier, and remembered teasing a guy throughout all my school years and I felt terrible that I had made his life harder than it had to be. So I guess what I am asking is how can I deal with these feelings of guilt and depression that have all of a sudden hit me..over things that happened almost six years ago! The thing is too, in our later high school years, we never bothered this person, and we all became pretty good friends. I haven't talked to him in three years, but things ended on a good note....However I still feel horrible about having been a jerk for so long. What can I do to deal with these feelings???!! Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!!!
Theres not much you can really do unless you know his where-abouts. And if you do then simply call, write or drive to him; what ever. Explain to him why you feel so horrible, and appologize. If the 2 of you ended on good terms, then you dont really have to worry about him blowing up in your face right? Good Luck.
