I think everyone goes off their path a little sometimes. I am almost 70 and I know that in a lifetime you can stray many times. The important thing is to return to your spiritual path and make every effort not to stray from it again. I am not an expert on this but did read in one of my Buddhist books that one should try to concentrate on the present and not dwell on the past and this includes things you are ashamed of. As you learn and practice more and more the times you stray will become less and less. Does someone with more knowledge than I have a comment on this. Anyway I hope this helps a little.
