    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...

    Today is the anniversary of the death of my

    little brother in law. He was three when I first me him. The first thing he did was crawl into my lap and lay his head on my chest and say, " I really like you!" He was the kind of child that wrapped your heart around his finger. Full of fun, mischief and laughter. He was...

    Yes, I have, more than a few

    but one in particular is the hardest.. He's my hero & always will be, he died serving his country along with his best friend. It's been over 4 years, but I still hear his voice, I see his smile when I hear our princess laughing. His baby girl talks to him in her dreams.

    Probably because I was just really bad at

    starting conversations with her and felt way too clingy. So I didn't start any conversations, I wanted for her to text first, but eventually I think she might've gotten tired by my not startyness and probably just forgot about me. That was a few months ago, but it came to show...

    had. All my life, I was told I had a bigger brother, who turned out to just be a close family friend, that was almost forced to bond and take care of me. The fact that we were close made my mom and dad say "Their basically brothers" which factor gave me the illusion that we were...

    for 2 years. We had our ups and downs but overall she was a great person. I became aloof with her because I felt smothered as a result we parted ways. She was my best friend, I try not think of her because the thought of her almost brings me to tears. It hurts that she won't...

    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.
