View Full Version : If only I could take that back...

Have you ever said anything to someone, perhaps after losing your temper, that you see tears their feelings into a million pieces, effectively causing you to wish you could take back what you said as soon as you say it, but know that you cannot?

Saying to my mother that I feel endangered at her house because sometimes she gets into little rage fits and throws things at me.
She was kind of depressed after I said that, but the next day she was fine. I wish I hadn't told her, because lately she's been even meaner. :\
And I do love my mom, but she needs to know that I don't like it when she throws fits and launches half of my room at me.

I wished I hadn't told my best friend about previously being a "cutter". That was the first time I've ever seen her so upset. So calm, but obviously was not happy with me. But everything is cool now- she actually is more affectionate for some reason -so I guess it's fine that I told her.

I think our mistakes sort of make up who we are and I've never anything so bad I wish I'd taken it back.
"Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien" xD

Far more often than I should, I say things to people that end up hurting their feelings. I think I notice when I do it fairly quickly though, and I can't stand to not resolve any problems that I've created. For that reason, there are very few things that I've said that I wish I could take back.
It sounds silly and melodramatic, but the only things that I would take back are the things that I can't fix. Everything else is kind of like a learning experience.

I can honestly say that this has never happened to me. I've lost my temper but even in a fit of rage I could never say something to somebody that's so bad it would make them cry. I'm always hyper aware of other people's feelings, even when I've lost it.

I used to have more of a temper a long time ago, but after just kinda breaking a sandbag I decided that I really needed to learn to control it...
I never really get angry any more, but on rare occasions i'll get into this weird cold hearted state of mind. :l
But to answer the question at hand no I don't. Cruel things are always said at one time or another, I try to learn what I can from them, and then treat it as it is - history.

I will occasionally lose my temper and say things I dont mean. I would take them back because I didnt mean them and I never intend to hurt others.

I tend to say the worst things at the worst time.. but what's bad is that a lot of the time, there is some truth to what I say so I don't think I could take it back wholly. I've never purposely said anything to try and make someone cry, though. I guess I just usually just end up voicing my pent up frustration, however, I don't think I've ever regretted anything I've ever actually said.. we work it out in the end because that's what people who care about each other do.

I'm one of these people that when I say something wrong, that I cannot repair the damage. There's always gonna be feelings broken and other things, and not once has anything worked out better. It's like setting fire to something, with me.

Kind of. I've said something that I needed to get across but needed to embrace them getting really upset afterwards. However, both occasions where this happened I was able to repair them the same day they happened.

Hm. I didn't say it directly to them; I wrote it in my diary, which was soon discovered. I regretted having a diary, ever since that day. I wish I could take back what I did -- what I wrote.
I even made a teacher cry.
