Can I tell you a secret? Will you promise not to say anything? Or tell anyone?

I made a mistake. It's been three years, and I still remember it. I still feel guilt and fear.

Young people should not be on the Internet and I learned that the hard way. I was lonely and naive. Chatty is harmless enough, but when you believe someone's lies. When you allow yourself to get lost in a fantasy. You can get hurt.

Nothing had ever happened. Nobody found me, I wasn't stupid enough to give my real name or address. But still the thought of my stupidity still frightens me.

What makes is worse is the movie The Net. I saw it right after my mistake and it scared the hell out of me. I'm watching it now, and I have to keep reminding myself hat I won't lose my identity. I won't get harmed. I'm ok.

The past is the past.
