    It's strange? The feeling of doubt,

    to not be sure, to question, to not have the absolute that you need. I know it's over I know its a sickness for him. I know its unhealthy. I know its a sickness in me. A cycle that's finally ended, the back forth fighting the blame, the disagreeing on core values, the therapy...

    He left and I should be happy he left the state.

    The country. I should be happy but I'm not. He's been the cruelest most damaging human being to ever enter my life and yet I loved him . I had a child with him and I believed in him so many times despite what he said. I hoped for him to be better to not be so nasty and extreme...

    Leaving Last Year Behind

    I am leaving the last year behind. I will not forget it but it will not be intertwined with my daily self in this brand new year. I will leave the hurt and pain, the tears and aches; I will leave even all the joys. This is mostly because I cannot let myself compare one day to...

    I am in a dark cold cave on an unknown island.

    My surroundings I am not use to. Every single sunrise I am up and gazing at the rolling waves , the sun reflecting in my eyes . I know that soon I won't be here anymore. I'll be somewhere else. But not today. It isn't time yet.

    I have plans and I want to explode with excitement. At the same time, I'm a little anxious because there are some unknowns. I'm looking for work in a new state. I can't believe it! I tell myself that there will be more details than I realize to wrap up here, so not knowing my...

    This past year has been a tough one. I've been spending the last 4 months trying to dissect and figure out why my bf has moved away and broke up with me after all we went through but I am now done. No one knows why certain people move out of our lives and others come into our...

    Moving Forward

    I don't want to go back to the grim, old days when everything was so dark and painful. A scarred heart doesn't become stronger through time; it becomes weaker and more afraid. It becomes more cautious and doubtful. Time doesn't heal the heart. Time just makes us forget...

    because of you. It's been over two months and you have completely frozen me out. You were more than a mentor to me. You were my confidant, a very close friend. But my decisions, and pace in figuring things out were not good enough for you. Maybe it's that, or the fact that I no...
