    I can't physically or mentally move on with my

    life. I've tried so hard to stop talking to this girl who's made it clear we won't be together, but I can't help staying and continuing to try. I know it won't happen but I'm so unhappy when I'm not with her or talking to her that it genuinely hurts. I'd rather be single and...

    I have tried so hard.

    His name is the last name I think of before I go to sleep. I don't want to think of his name. It has been so long. I try so hard not to. I try so hard. I don't know what to do. I don't know. I am hopeless. I am pathetic. I can't do it. I have tried. I am so critical. I think of...

    Trying To Let Go....................

    What if you could pick one day of your life, and everything would stop changing, every day would be similar and comparable to that one day, you'd always have the same people with you? If you could do that, would you do it? Would you pick that day and make that choice? We crave...

    I don't know why buy I can't seem to move on

    from my ex. It's been years since we broke up and the relationship we had was not really deep at all. However, I can't seem to fathom myself why I can't forget this person. I thought being forgetful was enough for one to completely make the feelings for a person be gone, but I...

    Battling The Truth

    Me and my ex-boyfriend who I had been off and on with for three years broke up two months ago.  I find out about two weeks ago that he has a new girlfriend, the worst part was that I have been waiting by the phone waiting for him to call. It is terribly hard for me to...

    Sarah. She would constantly mention her ex-boyfriend. When she would drive, she would purposely pass his house. I didn’t understand her obsession, but now I do. I recently got my heart smashed by this boy, Danny. Now it seems that I can’t get him out of my head. When I’m...

    I'm in love with a guy,

    we kissed once, but we talked the morning after that, and he explained that he doesn't like me that way. It was a few month ago, maybe 2 or 3, and I can't move on. He's a friend of mine, but most of all he's a really close friend's best friend! So, we see each other, and hang...

    An update from my drunken outbursts the other

    night: I feel better today, but I must admit that much of what I said had some truths to it. I do randomly think his name before I go to sleep. I don't think of him, I don't picture his face. It makes no sense to me why my mind is conditioned to say it. I get frustrated with...

    Never Good Enough

    I think this guy knows

    that I have feelings for him and uses this advantage over me. Little stuffs, like depending on my class notes and asking me to sign his clearance. I hate that after all this time, he still has a hold of me. And I can't get him out.
