    Many Times

    I think it's because I let too much in too fast. I do everything with so much love and compassion that when I get kicked it hits and hurts even more. Broken hearts mend but I think a piece always stays a part of the person who broke it.

    My Broken Heart Story... He Chose Nothing Over Me

    I'm sorry this is long... but I would really appreciate the feedback. I'm desperately seeking help or advice.   I met my ex, I'll call him J, in kind of a unique way.  Through his parents.  I played recreational softball and met his mother and father about two years ago...

    Far Away

    I love the song "Far Away" by Nickelback.  It's so touching and loving.  Unfortunately it's a painful reminder of all the empty promises, lies, and the broken heart he left me with.  Hopefully there will be a day when I can listen to this song again...

    Several Times

    Over my lifetime I had it happen several times and by several people.  I really don't want to let it be know by whom and how many times since I sometimes wonder if they secretly look at what I say and do when not addressing them directly.
