    Amen!

    I've been through so much transformation, the past doesn't even feel real. I dropped any and all people who insisted on mirring themselves in their or my past. Sometimes, you just gotta start afresh. We only move one way --- FORWARD!

    I don't really see myself having a future anyways, I live no I breathe and dwell in the past. That's while several of my relationships have ended. I can't let go. I can't.
