    Don’t try too hard to bring the old romance

    back. It’s not worth it. Love should be effortless and mutual, and even if you try to force it, it’ll just slip away again, causing you more pain.

    Sometimes the person you fall

    for is not ready to catch you. When this happens you should be have a safety net ready otherwise you wind up like Humpty Dumpty. Why do we let ourselves fall even though we see the red flags? I read something “We accept the love we think we deserve” and I think by accepting...

    She Almost Killed Me

    I had a crush on this girl for a bit of time and finally got the courage to tell her how I feel. She gave me her number, we texted everyday and we were at the stage that's not officially boyfriend and girlfriend. We were sort of feeling it out. We talked more and more, had lots...

    Why do we fall for people we can't have?

    Even worse when you are so right for each other. So tired of feeling so alone.

    And it is ok. I just need to remind myself why.

    So: 1. I love myself more 2. I am a priority in my life. 3. You are very bad for me (even if you are a good person) 4. Hanging around you made me delusional. 5. I care for myself and for my needs 6. I want to enjoy my life too 7. It is not the end to lose your company (which I...

    but it hurts when someone goes from "I love you" one day, to "we shouldn't be around each other" the next.

    for 5 years and good friends for 1 year. He was smart, nerdy like me, and we enjoyed doing a lot of the same things. He has a three year old son who I loved and treated like my own blood. I planned on marrying him and being a family. I found out by one of my close friends that...

    Life doesn’t always introduce you to the

    people you WANT to meet. Sometimes,#life puts you in touch with the people you NEED to meet to Help You, to Hurt You, to Guide You, to Leave You, to Love You, and to gradually Strengthen You into the Person You Were Meant to Become.

    As I sit here and cry this has to be one of the

    hardest things I've ever dealt with. The love of my life and I are over and I couldn't be more sad. We have tried to make it work but he has grown so distant from me and is now saying he is unsure if he wants to be with me so I walked away. It hurts so much because everything I...

    The perfect girl you

    once loved is gone. Her faith is broken. Her body is covered in scars that will never fade. Her heart is locked up in chains so tight, even Houdini couldn't escape. Her crystal blue eyes no longer shimmer like the sea. Her smile is plastered on like a tattoo, so no one can see...

    Why does life have to be unfair?

    I fell in love with a guy that I though will love me the same way I love him but I was wrong. Ever since we met I've been so cruel to myself. I've been forcing myself to him even if I know that he don't truly love me. I did all my best only to find myself alone at the end.
