    I Was Only Five Years Old When My Heart Got Broken

    My mother died when I was 5 days old. My father raised me. He was my best friend, my knight in shinning armor, my King, my protector, and my whole world. I was so close to him that I thought the sun rose and set in him. As long as he was with me, I never wanted for anything more...

    To Everyone Out There That Has Ever Had Their Heart Broke..

     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 was the needy girl.

    . And I ended up getting hurt in the end. Sometimes I wonder how things would have been different if I didn't come on so strong. Now I just feel embarrassed & ashamed. This has nothing to do with sex either, I didn't have sex with him.... But I dropped everything for him, and...

    I've learned that talk is cheap

    and that people are selfish and manipulative. so, I'd rather be alone now than to believe in the presence of elusive love that seems to be the cause of one's despair.

    So instead of sitting around feeling sorry

    for myself, I decided to get out of the house today. I went to lunch with one of my friends and then I ended up going to the mall. Bad idea? I saw so many cute couples at the mall, and it made me feel sad :( I also saw my reflection in one of the stores.. I looked so upset. I...

    Is there such thing as a soul mate?

    Can someone really love you and all your flaws? If so, where are they? It seems like the world has turned into chaos and men seem to be more immature and boys. Where are the gentlemen with respect that offer true love without it being beaten out of them from their ruined...

    I feel like I'll never find someone

    who loves me, someone who actually wants to be with me, someone who wants me to meet her friends, and her family, and someone who wants to meet mine, someone who wants to take down our dating profiles, and be an actual couple. Instead women don't see me as relationship...

    Me and my "boyfriend" just broke up

    and it was because of a petty fight. Turns out that the fight triggered something in him and he started ignoring me. I was so scared, out of all my boyfriends he was the only one to say "I love you" and he said it first! I'm still in love with him and have tried to move on but I...

    It's healing now. My bags are packed,

    light and heavy. The smell of you is almost gone. I'm scared of your darkness. But see you won't win. I still believe in love. I still believe in hope. You have hate, you bring people down you played with their emotions- even if it was not on purpose. You say I wasn't special...

    Sometimes you reach a point.

    Beyond that point there's just darkness. It's like a void. And you're an emotionless vessel. But that little light inside your heart says please let me light up. But you can't. It's there but you just can't light it. The only emotion you feel is pain. It's back and forth between...

    And I fear I'll never love the same again.

    The person I want, the person I fall asleep thinking about, is with another. Every day i pray for strength. I pray that I will get through this and that someday, I will find a love stronger, more suitable for myself. But my heart still yearns for him and I cry. I feel...

    Matters of the Heart.

    .. Love, if it was only matters of the heart it would be easy. But, your brain takes over. All forms of logic disappear. Speculation is everywhere. It's cruel... Despite having a wonderful relationship you wonder. You can't enjoy what you have. Insecurities overwhelm... The...

     Dear broken hearts, So OK, we'd better gradually accept that we've lost the love of someone that meant happiness to us, for different reasons. Now if we have lost one person, it won't make it any better to lose 2, that is the one that left, and ourselves. Do take heart...

    Did you get your heart broken yet?

    "A heart that isn't broken is a heart that isn't worth having. If your heart wasn't broken, then you wouldn't need to find someone to wrap it in their arms, care for it and help you hold it together. If you love with moderation and don't invest what you don't want to...
