    To me, having your heart broken isn't like

    having your whole world shattering. That's too fast, too sudden, too quick. When your heart is breaking, it's more like a slow burn in your chest, the smoke rising up and blinding you, leaving you unable to breathe, unable to feel anything except for pain. I wish heartbreak was...

    I got mines broke in a million pieces today.

    It's the second time a guy has walked away from me. I thought he was the one, but I guess not. I'm trying to live and move on . .

    What am I? Just a pure soul of a young human.

    Just a soul with a life, brain and heart. Just a soul that craves happiness, success and love. A heart that craves love. A brain that blames me for caring too much. A soul that tells me it's fine. But what is left of that pure heart? Nothing. Gone! An empty heart with so much...

    In reality, there’s just one thing separating

    the everlasting romance from the bad ones. And that’s compatibility. You may be a great lover who’s selfless and giving, but if you’re dating someone who isn’t compatible with your expectations from love, the relationship can leave both of you feeling bitter and mean.i...

    But not anymore. I'm over him.

    I found him to be detached, unbending and difficult at his worse. Independent, influential and original at his best. My thought for him is to understand that compromise is not step back, but a way to break out of deadlock so that everyone can move forward. I'm in a good place...
