    I finally made the decision to cut all ties

    I Said Goodbye to My Best Friend

    I didn't want to, but I just felt I had to do it.  It's a long story that goes back 6 years ago, but would take too long to tell it.  But for the past several months everytime I talk to my best friend she sounds like she has not interest in me or my conversation. ...

    Letting You Go Was Harder Than You'll Ever Know

    I have had many friends through out my life. People passing through, staying awhile, and then moving on,  Its not anything new really.  Usually it just happens on it own. Naturally, people just grow apart and take different paths.  This time it was different.  Not to long ago...

    I"m Sorry But Our Friendship Is Over!

    I said good bye and not in a nice way! I'm just frustrated and it's not all you!  It's just not fair that I do all the work and all you do is keep saying what if! Well F*** the what if's! I can't take it I just can't take it.
