    Tough To Forgive, A Start

    After many years of hatred.... .. and harbouring the deep hurts, it is time to move on. I have written all that was in my heart of what I had gone through as a kid. I have suffered both physical and mental abuse at the hands of my dad. Over the past few months these things seem...

    The Road To Healing

    it always goes something like this: in the beginning, i dwell on the good, and i miss everything so much it practically kills me. days slowly weave together, and my longing transforms into anger, as past crimes surface and fill me with hate.  but nothing lasts forever, and hate...

    Tomorrow Is D-day

    Well, it's almost here. The divorce hearing is tomorrow. It's scheduled for 9:45 am. 20+ years with him is almost in my rearview mirror. Frankly, I'm a little underwhelmed by it. He moved out mid-July. For all intents and purposes, I've been single since then. But there's a...

    Calm

    or anyone. Our relationship was just a crutch for him. I will no longer be a crutch for anyone. I accept myself. I am afraid to be to alone and start over but I am going to. I'm not holding on to someone who was not there for me. There is no chance of reconciliation. He is not...
