    It Happens

    Often I do but maybe it’s because I expect too much. Like when my family forgets my sons birthday but I always remember theirs. He doesn’t know any better but one day he will just like my oldest notices.  I guess I expect the call to come in and when it doesn...

    You told me you loved me,

    I wasn't sure if I could give you my heart. You want me to notice you, but take no notice in me. I'm not looking for another horribly unbalanced relationship, but my feelings betrayed me. Here I am, about to be free from the past; and you won't offer me a future, but wish me to...

    My True Love Shattered Me.... He Let Me Down

    I first saw him when I was 13 years old.  He walked into the Mosque and it was as if a glow was around him.  I had a strange feeling in my heart that he was the one.. I had no idea what his name was or how old he was, all I knew was that this was the man I was suppose to marry...

    Over A Cancelled Date

    On a scale of 1-to-10, where 10 is very let down and 1 is just a little, this experience doesn't rank higher than a 5.  Nonetheless, it feels significant enough to share. One of my private enjoyments is watching WWE Wrestling.  Around one-and-a-half months ago, I...

    Why Don't Friendships Always Last

    This happened to me a while ago this year, but I've been thinking about it recently for some reason. I sing and play guitar, I write songs too, and I was looking for someone to jam with and write some stuff, maybe do some recording. After much toil (musicians are a funny bunch...

    About a week ago I had a friend ?

    say that they no longer wanted contact. After 15 years of almost daily communication, there is such a void. It is difficult not to want to text them in a moment of weakness but I know it's not the best.

    24 hours later. So I guess that's it.

    I put myself out there. But he hasn't responded back. Not only do I feel completely blindsided but I'm so confused why he hasn't contacted me, how could it go from being good to nothing in a matter of days. I don't regret reaching out to him, but I can't believe he hasn't had...

    Sometimes we all feel let down, either by a situation or person. When you are down, the only way is up. Think positive, even if you cannot see a way out. It has happened to us all.

    Why is it that when I try to do something fun

    (like go out for Happy Hour with the girls) and I come home at 10 pm. There's always someone around that makes me feel that I did something sooooo terribly wrong?
