    Usually I'm doing okay.

    I'm working at a job I enjoy, and I'm working on myself which is making me feel stronger. But I have to admit I'm lonely. I'm married, and I'm lonely. It's not something I'm proud of but there it is.

    Its weird. I don't know

    if anyone follows me on here, probably not, or knows of my past but for those who do, 2 years and a few months ago I was set to meet a guy I had been speaking to for quite a few months. At the last minute, he told me he had a BF and I was majorly pissed. He lives a while away...

    I had a 4 year relationship online

    that was very powerful for me. I knew at the time there were lies by him being told. But, I gave him the benefit of the doubt because I wanted to believe him ....and...believe in us. There were so many days where he would cut me down, tell me off and get mad at the drop of a...

    Last night as I was getting a hot stone massage

    I had no choice but to be alone with my thoughts in the absence of stimulation. I was disturbed when memories of everything I've done these past two months post break up surfaced. I've done so much and so little and never looked back until last night. It was creepy

    So, here I am, yet again,

    with another online relationship turned sour. I haven't been in one for a very long time, and this is why. I thought maybe...just maybe, this last one would have worked since I've known this person online on and off for about 15 years. It didn't. He knows me, and he knows my...

    Lets go back to the days

    when we were young and restless. Made us believe before built our defenses. I'll tell you one thing for sure, we'll never face world unless we do a head on collision.

    Just remember that someone's opinion of you

    doesn't mean it's truth. It's just their opinion and how they view things from their perspective.

    I get so caught up in bemoaning the fact

    that I can't seem to sync with others - meet them on their frequency or life pattern. Well, these past few days I've been having an epiphany of sorts: Maybe the point is not adopting the language of others; maybe it's more important to discover and develop my own expressive...
