    I've had many boyfriends before

    and I thought I loved them but it wasn't until this one came along that I realized I've never loved anyone this much. I fell for him, hard. He was the most amazing thing I could ever ask for. But then out of no where he left without an explanation. I've been trying my hardest to...

    Today is the 3rd day of my breakup.

    I am still struggling with the pain. Goodbyes are so hurtful. I just keep missing him.

    You said you like me,

    you fight for me, now you betrayed me and leave me hanging? I've been heartbroken for 4 days because of you. I skipped meals waiting for your text. I'm tired, so I slept all days through.

    To Help Us Let Go

    I didn't write this. I wish I did. It's credited to lots of different people, most frequently someone named Reverand Safire Rose. Whoever wrote it, it's breathtakingly beautiful...so I wanted to share it with you. Without a thought or a word, she let go. She let go of fear. She...

    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...

    My husband left me. I miss him.

    I'm scared and broken. I can't get past the pain. I'm not living right now. I'm simply surviving. I never knew I could love someone this much. I never knew I could hurt this badly.
