I Miss People From My Past, But Know They Belong There

    I always think.. if things didn't go the way

    they went we'd all still be best friends... Buuut things happen for a reason and I'm letting loose and I honestly could care less about them because all they do is talk bad about others. Other people like me.

    Old Familiar Faces

    I miss a few of them. When I look behind and see all those faces, nostalgic feeling resurrects. A mix of emotion between bitterness and happiness overwhelm my heart. There is no happy goodbye. I don't nurture the past. It should only be kept as a memory. If there are words left...

    Toxic People

    ATTENTION!  All you toxic people that were once in my life!  You are in the past for a reason!  STAY THERE.  But there is one or two of them that I miss, don't know why, but I miss them... they are better off where they are, in my past and not bothering me...

    ..he and I, no matter how rough the connection, no matter how hard, need each other...I at least, have never needed anyone...except now him.

    I was only 15 when I fell in love with one of

    my best friends, a girl like me. Even though I had considered myself straight for the longest time, I decided to take the plunge and allowed myself to be taken by her at a sleepover. From that night on, we were lovers. This lasted for little over a year, since the girl I love is...

    I think I mostly miss having someone around.

    I feel like I'm alone all the time lately and have to mentally tell myself "Do not message him!" so often lately. the people I used to hang out with and talk to are just not good people for me to associate with. I know this, I also know I need to leave them alone. I just can't...

    Hard To Let Go

    I've never been able to let go of the amazing people in my life. Even though life had different plans it's always hard for me to accept. I believe in life that you meet people for a reason and when it's their time to move on then it's been fulfilled. I have taken away so many...

    Old Friends

    I do have moments when I miss all of the friends I was once so close to but grew apart from. We shared many great times. But ultimately I realize that people outgrow one another for a reason, and it is best that they stay in the past. It doesn't mean I love them any less.

    I miss one of my ex best friends.

    . We always had a good time hanging out, going out clubbing, drinking, road trips etc but ever since he started taking the hardcore drug it changed everything. We don't hang out as much as before or talk. I guess it was for the best.
