    Staying positive and thankful

    for a relationship that ended, this should serve as a life lesson for me, this will only make me stronger. I am letting my mind take over for a while and not let my heart rule, at least until I fully recover from this heartbreak.

    you're not good or strong enough needs its lying *** kicked to the curb. Listen to the bigger stronger voice who knows you can and will. Headspace is limited and nobody has extra room for nonsense.

    When I was in my early 20's, my friends would tell me that I was "so strong," but I didn't really relate to that. Honestly, though, I hadn't really faced my own feelings yet. I'd been through some rough things as a teenager (and younger, really), but I was always the type of kid...
