    i think the reason I like you

    so much is because you've been there the past nine months. you're the only stable guy in my life. it's like dr. jekel and mr. hyde with you, I never know who i'm going to get. sometimes you make me so ******* happy and I try to tell myself that you're not that person all the...

    It's inevitable... There comes a point in your

    life when you painfully realize who matters, who never did, who won’t anymore, and who always will. And in the end you learn who is FAKE who is just USING you, who is TRUE, and who would risk it all for you.

    I think logically, and the only real emotions i

    have are frustration and compassion. I get really frustrated when people are stupid, but I also worry about people when they're sad and I value the humblest people the most. Despite this simple outlook, sometimes i just don't feel at all. I can be a machine sometimes, spewing...

    who is head over heals in love with me, but I dont connect with him on all the same levels that he does with me. Each day he pleads for me or hints that he wishes I was with him, but I just know that it would never work out. Whenever I talk to him about my day (or whatever the...

    When people ask how I'm doing,

    the genuine response I want to give is "I don't know." I'm considered successful to most people and am grateful for all I have, but I can't shake this emptiness. I don't want to be known as an "old soul." I crave for meaningful connections to people who are similar minded...

    I'm feeling numb. I'm going through life atm

    without feeling a thing towards my husband (cheated on me) It's as if I'm going through the daily motions until we are able to separate. I do not feel anything towards him. Is anyone in the same place? Or has been??? Does this mean my marriage is really over?
