    I was in a relationship with her

    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...

    Sometimes it's the people you love most you

    forget most easily. My brother had been a part of my life for so long, that before he died, he was a routine, this man I called a few times a month, who showed up at family events, now that he's gone I find myself sitting on a bench in a park he loved and always went to, eyes...

    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.

    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...

    I don't like making friends

    because they stop talking to me after awhile, they're fake, they have ugly personalities, or I get too clingy especially if its a guy because I like having guy friends more than girls, their funny & chill & they're honest.
