    Is This "normal"? He Literally Said I Did Nothing Wrong.

    So my boyfriend and I broke up. He said he doesn't want a relationship while he is in the military. That's at least 7 years. He has been in South Korea since March. I could completely understand him worrying about me hurting him or wanting to go out and do whatever with whoever...

    A Letter To My Now-ex That He Will Never Read...

    It just doesn't make sense. But there is absolutely nothing I can do to change it. Don't you just hate those situations? How do you try to fix something that you didn't even know was broken? How can you be there for someone who decided that they just don't want you...

    I have been in the Army for six years and I've done two 12month combat tours to Afganistan. I will be honest, they have taken their toll on me as my mind is not what it use to be. I find myself now distant and detached from regular people. The things they say and the things I...
