    Give me the strength to not lean

    or collapse. Give me the strength to not cave to my nagging heart, and to instead follow what I know is the better path.

    How?

    How do you say good bye to that person you truly love? How do you let go of them in your heart and learn to live your life without him? How do you live each moment and not remember those little things that he did that make you smile? How do you experience a single moment of joy...

    The Choice Between Two Worlds.

    Six or seven months ago, I "lost" my virginity. It's funny because I don't even know what the day was. I had never had a boyfriend before, or even dated, so I wasn't really expecting it to happen that way... one night I'm experiencing my first kiss, and the next I'm having sex. D...

    I have not yet moved on from the relationship i

    had with my ex. Hurts a lot to be betrayed and abused by the person you truly loved. We have a daughter and he just didnt fight for our relationship. Maybe it was just not meant to be. Lets see how things go for me. Life goes on.

    Respect Vs. Love?..... "Oh, No!"

    I recently answered this question: Loss of respect vs loss of love what would you choose? "if giving in meant loss of respect and being taken for granted and if not giving meant being lonely,what would you choose?" One should never have to choose between respect and love. Respect...

    She Called Off The Engagement, She Is Sure, But I Am Dying.

    After 5 years of being together, and living together, I thought she was waiting for me to propose. And I did. But a few months after the engagement she called it off and wanted to go in separate ways. I guess she always had doubts about me. I had my doubts too, but at the end of...

    How to move on: Fall in love with

    yourself–the whole of you, not a part of you, and fall out of love with the voices telling you that you need someone else to make you complete. You are all you need.

    Memories

    i'm tired, of missing you memories cloak me with insomnia. stain me with melancholia. and my eyes burn deep, remembering you. but I will forget not because beneath the cavernous wounds that will become magnificent scars [of you] is a beauty that lingers, lives, shines through.

    So I burned a lot of bridges recently with

    friends and an ex and the thing is that last night I had a dream that my ex apologized to me and it was so weird. I woke up and felt at peace, but then I realized that that would never happen in reality and that it didn't happen in real life and I feel unhappy about it.
