    Moving On....5 Months In...Still Doing Fine

    Well here we are in November....and here are some of my insights. I still believe that everything happens for a reason, and that a person is precisely where they are meant to be. Saying that, I think that we all want a fix it now pill, I so wish that one existed. In the 5 months...

    He Will Never Know

    A guy will never know how much he will hurt a girl who loves him so much. He will never know the emptiness a girl would feel after he had left her. He may care and feel sorry, but he will never have the idea how deep the wound he caused to a girl. He will never know how that girl...

    Last week I came to the realisation

    that there was no salvaging my previous relationship... Too much had been said and done and I was too hurt and angry and despite still loving him it wasn't enough to keep being so miserable when he obviously isn't in the same place as me. So I deleted all his txts and numbers...

    It should have happened weeks ago. I should have been moved on then. I should have been the one to call it off. We haven't spoken for an entire month, yet I think about him every day. Mixed emotions. Half of me wants him back, and the other half hates his guts. Something inside...
