    Change

    The time for change has come. I ended a seven year relationship with a very bad boyfriend who I now realized manipulated and abused me to the point, I had no self-confidence and was honestly contemplating suicide. The heart break still hurts. I miss him like crazy, but I would...

    It's better to forgive through the tears, breathe, be still, take many small steps, and give - even if I may be getting nothing back.
