I 'd Like To Go Back In Time And Start Over

    So I could stop myself from meeting my boyfriend

    because I don't want this relationship anymore, but I love him so much. I don't want to be with anyone else and I don't want him to be with anyone else. "I am three oceans away from my soul"

    I used to think about this

    and wonder how life would be if I made different choices, but it seems like a waste of time now. There's still so much to do, so much to learn, so much to figure out, so much to experience. There is no going back. I can use the past inform my decisions but it doesn't help anyone...

    I despise the person I am.

    She's meanness, sarcasm, and cruelty disguised by a veil of smiles and timidness. I try to escape her; she's always there, ready to jump out at the "perfect" time. I hate her selfishness, her disdain of everyone around her. I wish she didn't exist.
