    Have you ever felt, if you could somehow take

    back your words immediately after you made that foolish comment to someone you cared, said something to the one you loved or written to someone you liked? If you are unsure about it, our regret about it itself that always follows, as surely as the night follows the sun, is an...

    As much as I want to hold on to the truest love

    I have ever known I need to forget what that was or should I say *couldn't have been. Because if it was meant to be, it would be. We let each other go yesterday and I love him in a deeper way today than I did yesterday. The difference today as to yesterday, is that today I have...

    I used to leave notes filled with love

    for my boyfriend before I left for work. I would tell him how much I loved him and cared for him. He showed me love by lying to me and talking to his exes so I grew cold and distant. Now he asks what is wrong? Why I am sad, where the notes filled with love went. I don't know how...

    I had a dream we were more

    than that, but it was nothing more than a beautiful dream. It's now time to wake up, face reality and let go of the dream. Goodbye my friend, thank you for the dream. It was beautiful while it lasted.

    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...

    I am slowly letting you go.

    I think it's too much for us to handle. I am so sorry for what happened. I need to let you go. I have listen to you, gotten advice , and my feelings keep saying let her go, let her be happy again. I am so sorry.

    I have made this my time. My time to deal with all that is painful, examine it, and put it away.This is my time to heal, to face my demons and my fears. My time to remove those toxic people and circumstances from my life, and move on. Too much wasted time, too much wasted...

    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...

    in undergrad(unless I stay a 5th yr) I think it's best that I slowly start letting go of the people I know at school. I mean to be honest....a good majority of them I know I'll never see after I graduate. Once I graduate there's a good chance I might not come back since I live...

    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.

    Letting Go

    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...
