    I wish I could go on pretending you never

    existed. I can't, because I could avoid all things that remind me of you, yet something will pop up unexpectedly...and I will be unprepared for the pain. So I will continue to dwell. I will push through the hurt. I will choke on the pain. I will do it until the wound scabs...

    Yeah, we have to let go of those who hurt us. One typical way is to forgive. But you can go one more up on them. Don't let what they've done faze you in the least. Listen, m- what's done's done. You can't unfurl it magically. To forgive can be grudging. But if you say : they...

    I am a very vulnerable person

    and I'm so used to getting to hurt that it doesn't even hurt anymore. I let go many people it hurts but after a while you realize that it was for the better and that they were just dragging you down. It's better to let go than to drown along with them.
