    Maybe It's Better This Way.

    About a month ago my bf broke up with me. I won't get into details but i can say he acted selfish and he took me for granted a lot of times. He didn't talk to me for about a week and then he texted me and said mean things to me and then he acted as if he hadn't said nothing...

    I Do It On Purpose

    When someone is unhealthy for me, I ensure that I they never want to weasel their way back into my heart.  For instance, when I broke up with my first "wife" I waited till we were trippin on Acid, then proceeded to point out all of her flaws.  Then I banged...

    If There's a Need

    i don't actually end something so precious if i don't see the need to do it.  i won't hesitate to burn bridges if i feel that it's totally broken and beyond repair.

    I Don't Burn Bridges. Those Bridges Are Burned For Me.

    I've never understood how friends can disappear so easily. I guess I am just one of those people who doesn't want to let go. I think I get more attached to my friends than they do to me. When friends of mine have disappeared, or just let go, it has always felt like a death to...

    Hit Delete

    I don't see the point in maintaining relationships that bring you down. I just delete people from my life that are negative.
