    For the past year and a half I have been in a

    roller coaster of a relationship. Some days were wonderful, some we're awful, some were just so confusing. I cried a lot because I just wanted things to be right. We broke up last month after months of strain but I just can't get over him. Isn't it funny how when you break up...
