With the huge phone bill my family member cost me and Christmas just happening, I've been short on money. I was in desperate need of groceries so I stole a few things from the store. I never do this but I was in need which doesn't excuse what I did. When I got to the til they asked me to remove everything from my stroller. I was so embarrassed. I apologized and explained why u did it and promised it would never happen again. Oh my gosh I am so embarrassed. I almost started crying. I am such a horrible person. I should have never even thought about doing that. I feel so ashamed .

Can you access a local food charity act44?:nod1:. It's humbling to have to use them but at least you will have food to get you through. I couldn't survive without my local food bank and it free's up money for your other shelter bills.

Thank you I will look into that. I should have thought of that. It would have been a great deal less embarrassing . I am so ashamed . I never want to step foot outside my home again.

Dont beat yourself up people do this for what ever reason, you made a bad choice but you know you wont be the first or the last and you are obviously remorseful. I did the drink-driving thing real bad drove over middle lines went through 2 red lights ....but I am remorseful i pray i will never do it again.
Sounds like you well as i know from your posts you are certainly a decent person who made a mistake.
There are sadly people who will keep on doing what they do with no remorse at all.
Most people do things like this for a reason you were desperate doesnt mean you are a bad person at all.
take care of you ok.

Also yes try the foodbanks or could you ask a friend to help you out?
I hope it goes ok

According to your post (OP) things didn't work out suitably enough for yourself.
If I was the one working there I probably would have let you get away with it.
