I Feel Empty and Lost

    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.

    After my supposed best friend for life cut me out of her life recently, I'm not going to lie, it messed me up big time. Whenever I am surrounded by my friends, I feel even more alone than when I actually am by myself. I feel empty inside and I hate it. I don't know who to...
