I stole money from my father

Almost nine years ago, when I was desperate for money during the summer break and had no job or a savings account I took a dark path and stole money from my father's wallet. At first I just started taking only twenty dollars, but after five weeks or so, the situation began to become worse as I started stealing more than just twenty dollars. When the summer ended, I totaled out the amount of money I had stole, and it rounded out to $132.34. I never told him or anyone what I had done, but I thought once I got a job for the weekend that I could pay him back the money. After a while I sort of forgot about it and just went along with progress. The cause of this coming back to haunt me was that today I started thinking to myself of all the things that I have stolen over the years. I ruled out the money stealing as the top five on my list, the other four was me stealing loose change from my best friend's bedroom, stealing a fresh ticket from his backpack, taking one of his movies without permission, and lastly embezlling twenty dollars from work. I know that stealing is one of the prime sins of the ten commandments, but I have been setting myself on a path to correcting my livelyhood, and the first step to that is paying back my father the money I stole from him nine years ago, then repent for my sin. Thank you for reading my confession.

  • I used to steal all the time what a rush, I still do at times but I've gotten better at controlling myself now. Just try not to, think of all the trouble you can get into.

  • Stealing is like an addiction. . .when you get caught, you will stop. . .I did!

  • If you find that you can't directly pay back the people you stole from, at least donate some money to charity. Then at least you'll be helping people who are down on THEIR luck before they get desperate enough to steal from others.

    And I hope that I can be a good enough father where, if my son ever needs money badly, he can at least come ask me.

  • You're welcome. And er... I think confessing it to the people you stole from shal relieve you too.

    Have you asked yourself the question: why do I steel al this stuf? (What do you get from it while it makes you feel so bad?)

    Good luck!
