    I feel like an idiot

    when I go out of my way to look after someone and then after they're happy and doing ok, they just ignore me. That's fine. Good to know what kind of person they are.

    Maybe I'm old school

    and don't mean to come off as judge mental, but whatever happen to things like commitment, honor and respect for the one you're with? Since when did things like cheating, affairs, one night stands and being with multiple people become such a hobbie or hot trend?

    I'm not sure if this falls into this category

    but today I told my best mate Michael about my ex. The first thing he does is search her name on Facebook, adds her then try's to get her number putting X's on everything he sent. Luckily she refused and sent me a screen shot of what happened. I was shocked. He went to a "no go...

    Sometimes you hold back from talking to someone.

    ..not because if your pride or because you fear rejection, but because you know deep down that if they wanted to be in your life, they would've made the ******* effort.

    When I was talking about losing a child,

    and the other person seemed surprised that I was ok. It occurred to me that as a society we don't talk about the **** we have overcome. Only the people that get caught up in their pain become the spokesman for life's **** cards. I don't tell people I've lost a child because I...

    The saying I grew up with is "actions speak

    louder than words, intentions speak louder than actions" to me it means that the reason Why you do something can be more important than what you did.

    I never want to give up on him

    even though if I get hurt so badly. But if he will be mine again, my boyfriend once again, I never want to lose him again because of some girls breaking us apart so they can have him. I never want him to be mistreated, used, and hurt emotionally. If him and I didn't break apart...

    Before you speak to me about your religion,

    first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, Show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm...

    If someone tells you they love you they should

    prove it through their actions, as for friends, if you care for me, call me more often and stop by to see if I'm doing ok.

    who says all the right things, falling on their sword, and then acts completely differently. Actions do speak louder than words. My husband keeps asking if I think he's crazy. I keep telling him "crazy" is not a clinical term.... But I told him last night that I do think he...

    You seriously can't tell someone they love you.

    Clearly he just doesn't know it, and it hurts me but I had to let him go so he can figure it out on his own. If he figures it out, he'll realize it, and hopefully he'll accept it and come back to me. I don't want to leave, but what other choice do I have? He feels like he...
