    Anyone ever try to find someone from their past and try to right your past wrongs? I have done this lately with someone from school that I used to pick on mercilessly. I'm telling you, we buried the hatchet and I feel ten times better (and feel there one less people to kill" list that I am on :eek3:)

    I was a really big prick back in the day, so I'm sure I've got a while to go before I've totally caught up, but it feels good im telling ya. Good karma beats dishing out shitty karma

    Same situation. Apologized to an old classmate a few years back for being a douche to him in HS.

    I was never really a prick in high school to anyone, but a few times when I've been drinking with the old man, I've came clean about some of the things I did when I was in highschool. :lol:

    I was an asshole in HS. But I'll probably never see them again, so that solves that

    Nope.

    I can't think of anyone that I should apologize to. :shrug:

    Personally, I see it as a selfish thing, kinda like telling an ex you cheated on them; you're doing it to get something off your chest and they've long forgotten it. :shrug:

    I dunno - I was bullied a bit in junior high. I wouldn't take offense to anyone apologizing, so I wouldn't see it as being selfish. It'd be kinda nice to know they feel bad for their past behaviour. Not in a revenge way of course...

    I suppose it depends on how much of a prick you were. Some things are probably best not told.

    "Sorry I pushed your mom down the stairs..."

    I was bullied all jr. high too. :(
    If someone apoligzed to me ... I wouldnt know what to say.
    Clearly they cant take back what they said about me, and made other think the same thing. It would deffanitly be something hard to accept frome someone who made you feel horrible about yourself.

    I think some things just have a way or sorting themselves out. A few guys i used to fight with all the time when we were younger are now real good friends of mine. My girlfriend and i fucking hated eachothers guts when we first met, i was probably more then the worlds biggest asshole to her and told her if she died in a fire i would lose no sleep. I think i may have tried to run her over with my truck at some point too.

    But.....here we are <3

    I can't imagine Goodie as a bully, especially after seeing the pic of him prancing along.

    Theres only one person I've ever been really mean to... and I was in grade 6, and theres pretty much no chance I'm ever going to see this person again. :(

    Most of the shitty things I've done, I've apologized and made up for it right away. I don't like things to linger :)

    I dont see it as selfish... its more of a "I was a fucking cunt to you for no reason and you didn't deserve it"... I mean, if someone hated me, I would think there must be something wrong with me, right?

    I was bullied from grade 4-6. If one of them saw me and said "hey, I was jerk to you. I'm sorry." It'd make me happy. I've long since moved on, but I'll never forget them or what they did. It'd be nice to know they remembered me and how they acted too.

    This reminded me of the opening to a song that I love.

    There's a couple of people I should say "sorry I treated you like dirt" too as well.:happysad: I think I will if I ever see them again.

    seems to be split on whether it's a good idea or not. I can see both sides of the fence, but I am on the side where I think "better late, than never"

    Someone did this to me yesterday actually! I had completely forgotten about it, but it was really nice of him to message me out of the blue to apologize. I haven't spoken to him in years.

    I was never mean to anyone in school. There were a few people who weren't the nicest to me in school, now they try to talk to me like we are best friends. :shrug:

    Same here. I was friends with a lot of different groups of people and can't say I have any enemies from when I was younger. But I had lots of people that were not nice to me or didn't even know I existed that now message me all the time or try to talk to me.
