    Caramel Corretto Vs Green Tea

    It's 8Am, I'm sitting in a nice, warm coffee shop that leaves a hint of cinnamon on my tongue as I slowly breathe in and out, munching on my thoughts, enjoying this fresh chilly morning. Instead of my usual green tea, I decided to be fancy - I ordered a caramel corretto. It's...

    I had my heart broken

    after an affair. 8 months after it ended I'm still desperately in love with him and so not over it. Some days are worse than others and I keep telling myself life is too short to feel like this so why do I?! Why is he still the the first person I think of when I open my eyes in...

    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!

    My heart break happened recently.

    Was with him for a year and a half and I find out that he was cheating the whole time! Crazy...it hurts like hell but I'm glad I found out now before I invested more time in the relationship. I just feel sorry for the women who will cross paths with him. He is a compulsive liar...

    I started talking to this boy.

    It took me months to get to start to like him back. But in the end I'm glad I got to know him, I'm glad he was there for me for awhile. But I still wish he was. I loved him for a long time and he loved me. We talked every single night sometimes from morning to night. Sometimes...

    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...

    He was the love of my life.

    Broken Promises

    All those promises broken. My heart shattered. Left my body numb. Broken morals. Those were the four things he left me. I gave him everything possible. I tried so hard to make it work, get him back, to love him. We had a good relationship I guess you could say.. We fought a few...

    He cheated on me once and I forgave him. Today he told me he was in love with someone else for the past month and slept with him. My heart is shattered and I want to disappear in the world. I can't trust right now. I'm shaking and breaking and I don't know what to do

    Everyone knows that the heart is a muscle.

    I think it's even deeper than that; When people do resistance training (weight lifting), they are creating little tears in their muscle, which makes them get bigger and stronger once the body repairs it. I think the same is true for the heart, on a metaphoric level; The...

    Not very technologically savvy

    and I just stumbled onto old emails from an online love that still stings to think about. I left them in my little folder, still unable to delete them. I've definitely wasted too much time crying over someone who couldn't care to say goodbye.

    or really broken inside or out, they tend to fill emotional pain and physical pain. I am feeling it since November 2, 2012 Friday. It's been going on and off. Sometimes you can't bring that person back even if they are still alive, you have to set them free and that's what I did...
