    this in a private message to me. I believe she has posted it elsewhere in one of her own stories, but I simply had to share it here, too. If you see this, please know I found it extremely profound and have read and reread it so many times I've nearly committed it to memory...

    If you are a woman, there are times

    when you should wear bold lipstick, sexy dresses and dance like a sexy seductress. If you arr a man, always be honest to the woman you are with, always respect your woman and best of all.... try your best not to lose your mind over her.

    Let go of the things that can no longer be fixed. If you force yourself to try and put them back, things will only get worse. Holding on is being brave, but sometimes moving on makes you even tougher.
