    I have this really good friend

    and we always talk, even in email. I'm not sure if he think me as a friend or even a nice classmate now but I'm sure that I really care for him and he is one of my best friends. Two days ago, I emailed him that I need someone to talk to and something is troubling and...

    7.17.15... Can't believe you're gone.

    We literally just had ice cream for dinner just the night before. Laughing until we about threw up. Enjoyed our night playing our hearts out at a concert. How could this even be possible? You spent your last hours having the time of your life with your wife at a jazz festival...

    I wonder how much longer I can keep going this

    way. I set up my life to be married with kids. Now I'm divorced with kids and I feel like I'm still living in that controlled state that I had been in while married. I know I'm not happy and I feel like I have way too much to say about this then I can type. Guess I should speak...

    Ever contemplate suicide over dealing with a

    situation? Yeah that's how I feel at the moment. I wouldn't do it, I couldn't hurt the people around me like that and I couldn't let the nasty folk get the pleasure. Sometimes it just feels too alluring. I wish I had a cheat code for life.

    I'm going through a separation

    and it's so hard to not reach out. And yet I know it's for the best and that I need to let go of what I thought he was. I have children with this man and they are asking for him. Asking why he doesn't call or come see them. They are worried, I can see it. They realize he just...

    I feel like I'm missing the present moment I am

    in right now. I'm so busy preparing for the future, worrying about the future and thinking about it and yet I miss this present moment. I forget to appreciate what I have now, what a mess I made my life worrying about what's not yet coming.
