I think most people have done things in their past that they wish they hadn't, I certainly know that I have. From what I understand it is best not to dwell on our mistakes but to try and forgive ourselves and move on and progress spiritually and as a person, that Kamma will 'sort out the rest' as it where.

You mean you only did bad things before you turned three?
