    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.

    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...
