    My boyfriend and I just mutually ended our 3

    years. I know it was for the best but I feel lost. We agreed to still be best friends though. I just wonder what the future holds for us. Only time will tell.

    Shared Something Today

    I shared something with someone today and I can't believe I admitted it ever.  I'm glad I shared it but it brought up all these ugly memories.  I know I should keep the past behind me but it is just too hard to overcome.  I once again feel lost and alone and sad...
