    You...

        I'm 25 and i have had quite a share of heartbreaks. It was not something easy to go through, but never unbearable - and somehow, in the middle of  agonizing wallowing in self-pity, I always knew that everything would be alright. I knew that time heals, and even at the...

    I loved being single, I dated alot.  I enjoyed having the romantic experiences.  I did this because I knew that when I committed myself to someone I would never date anyone else for the rest of my life.  I have fallen in love several times.  I didn't always choose the best...

    The Feeling

    Heartbreak. It's more than just a pain in your chest. It's forgetting how to survive. You're not sure how to breathe except for the moments you spend sobbing. Food is out of the question, cause you know you'll just throw it back up. Sleep is uneasy as your dreams wander. It...

    There's so many categories regarding heartbreak

    I wasn't sure where to post but I guess I'll settle for this one. I would prefer to have someone who's able to empathize instead of just telling me advice. If you're unable to say anything kind I suggest you take your negativity elsewhere since it's not wanted or needed. As of...

    What if you let the wrong person go?

    What if he/she fought for you but you are too unsure and too scared of your demons that you can't let anyone see? What would you do if you have to live with these choices? The fact that you let go of possibly that one great love of your life. Yep. Randomly rambling and...

    Sometimes you need to remind yourself

    that you were the one who carried you through the heartache. You are the one who sits with the cold body on the shower floor, and picks it up. You are the one who feeds it, who clothes it, who tucks it into bed, and you should be proud of that. Having the strength to take care...

    Just found out a guy likes me

    and it breaks my heart because I really care for him and it makes me sad to break his heart because I haven't gotten any feelings for him and I don't want to lead him on. He's such an amazing guy and he understood me so well.

    My boyfriend hurts me emotionally

    and it makes me want to cheat on him because I feel he does it purposely to hurt me cause he doesn't love me anymore. I feel he just wants to take advantage of my feelings just like everyone else.

    Lose your complete sanity. Forget what happiness feels like, drown yourself with the pain, doubt and bitterness.

    Heatbreak

    The distance sound of a heart shattering into a million pieces. That heart, my heart-- It's the worst pain. As if no one cares for you, even if you have people there to comfort you, to support you. It doesn't feel like it. It's just cold, and lonely. Numb. It isn't easier, it's...
