I Have a Broken Heart

    I thought I had it under control.

    I thought I was strong enough to make it through a day without crying. Why does today feel as sickening as my first day without him? Why does my heart hurt to the point of not being able to breath? How does the thought of him still make my feelings hold me hostage? I don't have...

    I spent the last four years of my life with a

    girl that I cared deeply for. Its been a while now since it ended and even longer since I knew that it would end. It has been a terribly rough time. The worst period was actually the period where I knew what was coming. That depression and constant feeling that something just is...

    On 21st June, I left the UK to move to Spain

    for two months while working as an au pair in Murcia. The family I worked for and lived with was only a little boy, his mum and dad but the Mum's family is very close-knit and guess what? She has a 22 year old brother who I have fallen for. We've had a romance during these two...

    I have intimacy issues.

    I hate this because everytime I get close to someone I always get hurt. And I'm tired of it. I really hope you're different as you say... You know who you are lovely..

    "There is a sacredness in tears.

    They are not a mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and unspeakable love." ~ Irvin

    I don't know what to say

    but It's so broken... Since we broke up, almost everyday, every morning I wake up so so early (not like usual) and when at night trying to sleep, the tears fill my eyes and just flowing down out of control. It hurts so much I just can't believe she treated me that way, she...

    Nothing will last forever

    even if you try ur best. Things will fall apart. Promises are truly a torture, it's like a lie. One may promise to not break you, in the end, they break your heart. If only I knew love will end like this, I would of never took the chance to be in love. I was curious how love...

     Most of the time it is the worse pain in the world.  You feel like you are robbed of a future that will never happen.  You doubt yourself, you feel as if it was your fault, and the worst part is the emptiness you feel inside that is the void that person used to fill...

    I have truly never felt anything worse. Physical pain can never compare. I'm so worn down inside and I feel like I have nothing left inside of me to give to anybody else. Also, missing them is the worst part. Remembering is torture. Every time I see, hear, or say something that...

    or energy. At first he seemed to genuinely care about me, but as time passed-I find that he cares only for himself. I put my trust in this person only for that trust to be ripped apart. I was hoping(in the beginning) that I had found someone to spend forever with. I have never...
