    i was on pinterest earlier.

    I love that site because I usually find something that explains how I am feeling at that very moment, when I can't find the words. Today, I found the perfect quote. It read, "It's time for me to let go of what is gone, enjoy all of what remains and look forward to what is...

    I recently broke up with my boyfriend over a

    year because we both dragged the relationship on longer than it needed to go. Losing him was hard at first but now I believe I have found someone who actually cares about me.

    But I keep collapsing.

    There came a time I stopped thinking about my friend. I could go on for days and weeks without feeling anything. Then I suddenly collapsed. Maybe because of stress. I think of him more and more now. Instead of forward, I'm taking steps back. It is strange. I'm not quite...

    Its hard to let go of things that

    once meant so much to you but life goes on and you have to find the courage to move forward because you deserve better and you may be missing out on wonderful opportunities.

    I can't seem to move on.

    No matter what it is, even if I forget it, it always comes back to haunt me. It's so stressful for my memories to come and get back at me, I don't want to remember the wrong things I've done, I just want to skip past it without it coming back into my head.

    I'm gonna really treat myself.

    I'm taking myself on a road trip, just me and me. I need to get some perspective in some things, start something new. It'll be good for me. I'll be driving 1400 miles to Portland, Oregon. Get some fresh air, time away from people, and maybe will I know what I wanna do.
