    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.

    Almost three years later.

    I got dumped by a boyfriend who I thought would never even consider the idea of leaving me. I have developed severe anxiety because of it and am on prescription medication. It is hardly helping. I feel an immense amount of pain every day. I still feel to this day that i am like...

    Going On Nine..

    Years with the same person. At first I thought I had it all and it could never go away, then it quietly slipped away leaving my heart like a ball of unraveled yarn left for me to pull back into my body. I naively ignored the clues and tried to hold it together like glue. It wasn...

    It hurts me to say, but I was right.

    Right about everything. It was too good to be true. And like clockwork, just like everything else, it ended. I stood there, frozen, as I watched the floors underneath our feet crumbling, the walls we built together tumbling. And I still stood there holding up the roof, because...

    Why am I heart broken

    if he's my ex and I'm in a relationship? Why does finding out that he's finally in a relationship so devastating when I was the first to move on? You see this heart of mine it confuses every neurological vein in my head. I just want to be happy and not hurt. I miss him but why...

    I hate you making me feel this way.

    .....why you give up just because of the distance. We always say to each other that someday we will be together and it will be worth it. You said you love me and still think about me everyday. But where are you now? You are with someone else, because she is there and you want...

    It sucks doesn't it? When you blindly love

    someone and you're definitely willing to do anything for them, but they don't even see you? Like you're invisible? And when you try they turn you down. I fell for that girl, i had never fallen in love like that before. When I see her it's like no matter what my day gets better...

    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...

    Today I found out that I was "the other woman".

    I went to bed last night, celebrating the one year mark, and woke up to a very different reality. How does a person hide their wife and two children from you for a year? How can a person be so selfish and cruel? When I met him, I was very afraid to allow myself to fall in...

    I sit here alone in the dark surrounded by

    haunting visions that rip at my heart and soul. Screams echo in silence. Tears fall while demons scorn. Why must the pain flood? Why must I live without ever knowing what it is to be loved? Why must I only know fear and pain? Why? Why? Why was I born? Childhood dreams lie...

    The worst feeling in the world

    for me is having no where to turn to. Feeling so lonely. Feeling so small. My ex bf made me feel worthless, I just would love to feel important to someone- that the idea of losing me is terrible. However I have always felt like it was so easy to let go of me then months later...

    I'm pretty positive it's been shattered.

    Will you come steal me away, my love? I'm already so done this arrangement. Not with you, surely. But damn it. This is it. I shouldn't even be doing this. I need you to come squeeze my broken pieces back together.

    It's always the worst at night.

    All I do is think about him. He's in my every thought and I'm so tired of crying. The worst part is the memories I have and the plans we had. I don't think I will ever love another the way that I loved him.

    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.
