    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.

    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...

    alot of close relationships and friends that I had in the past have kinda of reached a point where there is no going back. I don't know why but I always feel like that every strong relationship Ive had with a person ends badly and then the "bridge is burned" to where I can't...

    I Do Not Forgive And Forget.

    I have burned bridges with people who have wronged me, including family. Its been a few years and some old faces resurfaced. They hoped enough water had gone under the bridge. It doesnt work that way with me. You burned that bridge remember? Since I live this way, I tend not...

    Spiral Steps To The Heart

    I've Burned a Few In My Time...

    I have burned a few bridges in my life - quite literally in one case where my ex-home was gutted by a fire started by a cigarette left in an ashtray by my first husband.  I've left countless belongings, books, photographs, mementoes, house contents on several occasions. ...

    Hit Delete

    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...
