    For All The Broken Hearted

    I just want to share a quote that helped me get through the day. Hope this would help. "I was, but then I realized that I was holding onto  something that didn't exist anymore. That the person I missed didn't exist anymore. People change. The things we like and dislike change...

    7 years... You were my first at 17.

    I was so clueless about being in a relationship. I took the risk and let you into my life 3 months after we laid eyes on each other. Your "bad boy" side attracted me.. But it was mainly your personality. You made me laugh, you made me blush, you made me open up more, & you made...

    Me and this guy have been talking recently

    and with the way he was acting I thought he liked me. Every time I'd look up at him he would already be looking at me and smiling. He'd tease me and touch my shoulder. He seemed to get nervous around me sometimes too. He has a girl friend of two weeks and he still does this...

    So very deeply. You have moved on to a great

    life and I am left to pay the price for both of us. I just can't get over you. I am afraid I will live in misery for the rest of my natural life. It is impossible to put you out of my mind. My life was good before you, but you made it amazing. The cuts are so much deeper now...

    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...

    My mother is an alcoholic.

    But has hidden it v well. She beat me up last night. Stood on me. Pulled out clumps of my hair. I hit her back. I never should have. No one believes me. Because who would hit their mother. She is a pathological liar. I can't compete with her.

    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...

    Even when i realized i could not trust you,

    i still could not stop myself from loving you. Even when i realized you don't deserve me, i still felt like i deserved you. Because i had already given so much of me, and invested so much time and energy, that it just didn't seem fair to have to walk away with nothing.

    that last night was the Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse. It started at 1:48 am and lasted until 3:00 am. I watched the moon shadow over by the earth and slowly turn a deep orange. It was beautiful. I starred out the kitchen while occasionally glancing over at you sleeping. I wanted...

    Not So Happy Ever After

    I started dating when i was sixteen years old and was in a relationship with him for about twenty months (we'll call him Chad). I broke up with him because we argued too much and we just were not getting along anymore, which happened in October 2012. I started a new job in August...

    I feel so hurt and broken inside. My boyfriend left me 3 weeks ago and instead of letting me move on he keeps getting in touch with me for various things and this just destroys me. And everytime he says how much pain he's going through but when I ask why he left me then he says...

    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 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.

    other days I just can't handle all that feeling of loss. Sometimes I just wish I could turn it off

    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.

    I am losing you, your warmth,

    your embrace, your smile. I have nothing left, since you turned your back at me and declared your lost feeling for me. This pain....is so exquisite I thought I could die from it.

    for my ex. He may be has a slight shadow of feelings in return but is seemingly fighting them and so probably doesn't want to get back together. However, to absolutely be sure, I ask him directly: do you want to be with me? He beats about the bush, doesn't say 'no', doesn't say...
