    Confused

    When I first met my boyfriend, we were crazy about eachother. Every guy I had been with before him was abusive, a liar and a cheater; he was very sweet and romantic. Everything went great for 8 months, I had a great relationship with him and his parents and he asked me to marry...

    Well. Things are just officially over now.

    I'm just done. I've never been so hurt before by it all but there's nothing I can even do anymore. I'm going to still care about him just the same I know it and that's what really sucks.. But I'm done and have to now force myself to move on. Every second is literally agonizing...

    What Hat Am I Wearing Today?

    I tend to be a very emotional person, I know this about myself. I'm very sensitive and unfortunately, it is easy for me to become overwhelmed and have to give myself a 'time out'. Like most other people, I play many roles, wear many hats. I'm a wife, a mother, a friend, a...

    It hurt when he stumbled across me.

    
It was like broken glass all along the floor. 
But it was beautiful and he looked at me and all he could see was pain.

 And yet my eyes were still hollow; like the life had been sucked...

    I don't know if anyone feels this way too

    but does anybody feel as if they physically can't talk to people no matter how hard they try. I often find myself craving some sort of social attention for I am Lonley and somebody asking as simply to borrow a pencil can be the highlight of my day.
