    What Hurts As Much As Losing Someone To Death....

    ..... is losing people important to you that are still living. failed friendships, failed love affairs, etc. i think in a way it would be easier to cope with knowing that they left you not of their choosing but that the clock of life ran out for them. but when they're still here...

    This is so crazy! It was a terrible car accident and his face is a mess. Awaiting the coroners report which will be out tomorrow sometime. From the looks of it its probably brain damage. What a terrible way to go. Almost unrecognisable. Little "Simmy"-I'm actually lost for...

    Dearest Steph: I know you won't ever read this

    - for I have accepted the finality of the fact that I've lost you forever. My stupidity and my stubbornness drove you away, and too late did I realize what a treasure your friendship was. I wanted to atone, to make it right, but I guess we're way past that now, since by blocking...

    I've had some dark days in the 25 years of my

    life and this summer some new ones were added to that. I watched my mother die of cancer at 16, and within a year after her death, I also lost one of my aunts and grandmother, within 2 years after my mothers death. As if these events were not unfortunate enough, my father then...

    My mom cheated on my dad

    and I saw a video of her and her lover. I love my mom, she raised me well for 22 years. It saddens me that I can't seem to find it in my heart to forgive her. I can't talk to her like I used to. It feels like I lost a very important person in my life. My dad knows none of this.
