    A Rejected Goodbye..

    The response to these words I wrote was silence..nothing.. And I feel like an idiot for ever writing this. For ever sending this.. What did I really expect from him anyway? But, it was honest. What else can I say? When I fall, I fall hard. "I love you and..." I love you and...

    "When people walk away from you.

    .. Let them go.... Your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you, and it doesn't mean they are bad people. It means that their part in your story is over."

    Watching stars and airplanes.

    Having trouble letting go of the past and what I thought my future would be. Realistically I know and understand this is the best ( the only way to preserve myself) but it's hard to let go of what was and what should have been.

    And the only reason I think would be more valid

    they any others I have is. Having no one to confide in and each bad event erupting so close to each before my wounds had time to heal damaged me. And took away my coping skill ability to let go and accept it. Second thoughts?

    Guard

    If there was ever a fault in me, it would be that I suck, really suck ,at letting go. It started when i was young and it wasnt with people. It was with things, leaflets I used to pick up at the supermarket, stones I used to collect in the garden. I just wanted to keep it all and...

    I can't trust anyone anymore

    because of you.You knew I had trust issues in the past and now all of a sudden you want to stop talking to me. God I trusted you to the point that I would take a bullet for you any day. And now I'm here alone thinking to myself how am I going to get over this?

    ... Of People I Care About

    I am the kind of person that likes to create bonds in a friendship. I do not let go of people I care about easily. I sacrifice a lot for those I care about. I have been rejected as a friend before, but it was because they thought I was stuck up and full of myself. This is not...

    The Family I Left Behind

    The family I left behind was an unhealthy one, since I ended up wasting much of my adult life on someone who never gave back. It was a one way relationship. I'm not good at letting go either, and wasted years on people I only thought would change, (but they never did). God...

    I Am The Worse...

    At letting things go. If it means letting someone go, or letting an incident go i don't know why but God it kills me to move on. If i get into an argument with someone that argument will sit with me for days, and i will still most likely be mad later. If it means letting a person...

    I knew this girl and she was kind of there

    for me at a very hard time I say kind of because I don't think she quite understands how much she helped during that time. Although she act's pretty heartless like nothing bothers her, she's sort of ignorant and rude and lately (not to me but to other people) she's been gettin...

    I wish there were words.

    I long for a way to express the things that are bouncing around in my head. Instead, they are trapped inside the cage my skull has become. The English language is not sophisticated enough yet to have shaped letters into a form that could adequately paint the images I can’t...
