    Welp after a year I guess I made the right

    choice to move on.. So many "I love yous" and "I've never felt this ways" and after just a couple days I find out you're on multiple dating sites already.. Makes me question if anything you've said during that year were things you felt or if you just wanted to play house.. I...

    With lots of hope and resolutions,

    a New Year is coming once again. We say to ourselves this is going to be the year, where we are going to achieve our goals. Still when the year comes to an end, we start analyzing records, our achievements and failures, only to realize that we have not achieved most of our New...

    After a talk with a few of my EP friends (You

    know who you are) I feel as though I'm ready to put my ex's suicide behind me from now on. I can't keep wasting my time hurting myself over something that I can't fix. From now on, I'm going to remember the time we had, the happy times, the loving, happy and caring person he was...

    Slowly Loosening My Grasp On everything.

    I'm sick of being afraid. I'm sick of ruminating about my past. I'm sick of putting myself down for not being perfect. I'm sick of feeling sorry for myself, sick of always fighting society for something that I think I supposedly deserve. I'm sick of checking if the door is...

    I have missed your voice,

    your lips, your laugh, your touch, the gentle look you give me. Your silliness, your mannerisms, your attitude, your raw energy. But I also miss me. This is not the person I want to be - the one that waits, and yearns for you and forgets how to be happy on my own. I love you...

    Lately I haven't felt well.

    I'm realizing it's time for a detox, get rid of the toxic things in my life. I can't continue to feel this way, it's making me lose interest in the things I'd enjoy prior to my unsettling mood. I haven't been sleeping properly, but I spend my days drowsy. What I'm trying to say...

    TOMORROW, I will set you free.

    Clear you from my mind. Tell my heart it's OVER. My heart will understand it needs to stop crying over you. No matter the feelings in heart, my mind needs to make my heart understand you're gone. I can't lose anymore sleep over you. I can't keep hoping today will be the day...

    When we undergo a crisis in our life,

    we feel threatened and out of our comfort zone. We consider the new situation, whatever it may be, as an enemy. We declare a revolt against it, hoping that our struggle would ultimately somehow make us victorious over it. We resist the changed situation it has brought along...

    that was on me. Letting go of unforgiveness, letting go of the past. Going through a spiritual cleanse by CHRIST. Want to start healing others including my mom, preaching, hearing GOD better, want visions and being able to prophesy etc.

    Our stressful, pain-filled experiences are not

    Of all my memories, my stories,

    things in my past. These are things that people do not know about. On the exterior, they see a highly ordered person who is efficient and dependable. There is really nothing wrong in that. It is enough for one to get by every day with that facade.

    doesn't mean two people stopped loving each other. Sometimes, they just stopped hurting each other.

    "Be with someone who knows what they have when

    After I wrote my recent story, "the affair", I felt like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. I reclaimed myself by taking those hidden diaries out. I let go of the secrets and the shame, the hiding of things, and the pretense of a good marriage. All those things made me...

    I guess the only time you let go is

    when your life is about to change, I think that moment is coming for me finally. If I ever see the girl I'm trying to let go again, I don't know how il feel but she's pushed me away too much for me to even be bothered at this point in my life.
