    Don'T Let The Bed Bugs Bite

    You're bugging me again, but you have absolutely no idea, do you? Have you even given me some THOUGHT this past year? Didn't think so. For you it was a superficial paper cut, for me it was a life changing accident. Thats right - accident. Now that my feelings for you are...

    My brain knows I am better off without a man

    who was all fancy words but couldn't connect on a real level. Who never wanted to be a partner. My heart is simply missing any connection. Brain is now counseling heart... please believe that a real connection HAS to be more powerful than the false one you endured!

    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...

    The feeling is so hard to believe .

    It's something that you need to experience before you can say **** !!! It's something you just want to end yourself and think dark thoughts .

    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...

    He was the love of my life.

    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...
