    Still Heartsick

    I feel so bad right now.  I wonder where she is now.  I feel so sad not knowing.  I told her we should give each other more time and space because for some reason she decided to bring up the same painful feelings I felt a month ago.  It hurts so much more this...

    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...

    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...
