    I Should Have Done It Different

    I fell in love at 15 years old with a man that was my soul mate - I may not have known it then, but I do now after years of searching.  I am 53 years old and have never loved another like my first love.  I am not sure I can.  He is still me, my life partner, father...

    I Still Love Him

    Hard to believe that its been fourteen years since I left him. He never knew me. I was afraid that he wouldn't want me. I wad more afraid of knowing myself without judgement. Many tragedies occurred during our nine year marriage. All to me and my family. He stuck by me, but I...
