    Love Vs Hate

    I made the mistake of letting someone who really loved me go. I messed up so much with him that he won't even be my friend. Each word that I read from his letters are like knives. It's been years and yet, I feel like it's still a fresh pain. I don't know what to do and I wish...

    ...but Not For the Reasons You Might Think.

    I cried when I read the old emails because I realized he never loved me. They say hindsight is 20/20 and I guess that's true because in reading through the emails all of the signs were there that he was cheating. That he was "just not that into me" that he was going...

    Must I elaborate? ....... Well duh of course!! haha .... I didn't so much cry. In fact I don't think I can over him anymore. I did however get a sense of depression and I suddenly snapped out of it and closed the book in which they were placed. It read something like "you are my...

    It Had Only Been a Month...

    ...since my boyfriend broke up with me via email.  Well, according to him, we'd broken up before that, but we talked it out and I THOUGHT we'd decided to stay together.  But I went home one weekend and there it was - "I'm sorry, but I can't do this anymore.  I...

    From D

    I found some this morning, ones that I had saved, and old messages from him. It reminded me of how bad it used to be. How I wanted to hate him but couldn't and how much I loved/love him. There was one in particular, where he told me how guilty he felt for being with me. I...
