Congrats on "signing the card"! A milestone in your life, even though actually becoming a Baha'i began when you accepted Baha'u'llah. Kudos and props!
Stuart, all of us have done things in our lives that we are most certainly not proud of. Things that we are ashamed of. We are all human, with many imperfections. Even the ones we aren't aware of...
But in the end, when we become Baha'is, and believe in Baha'u'llah, we also believe in Baha'u'llah's power to recreate us if we so let Him.
In fact, those events you aren't proud of serve as a reminder of where you once were, and where you are going. Trust me, I can relate to your feelings in my own way...
Anywho, congrats, take care, good luck, Allah'u'abha, and keep the poetry coming!
PS: Are you in the medical profession?
