    Just got my heart broken

    for the first time and it sucks......My long distance bf fell in love with his best friend who came out to him saying that he's been in love with him since they've met which was years ago, but this made me feel like I was holding him back from a real relationship. So I let him...

    Due to some pretty different circumstances.

    At first, I blamed myself for stupidity. But then I realized, no, it's not 100% my fault. I'm on a medication that changes me a good bit. I do things on it I'd not do when I'm off it. Some medications are like that. 9 out of 10, I'm fine. 9 out of 10, I've got a...

    A good friend died this weekend.

    I'm in complete shock and I have no idea what to say to his friends and family. I'm in another country so I can't physically be with them to grieve.. I don't think it's really hit that its true anyway. He was only 21 and I can't even express how much of a genuine and funny guy...

    When you lose someone,

    you try to remember the last time you saw them. And most of the time it's a blurry memory, because at that last time you had no idea it would be the last.
