    Letting Go of Sasha

    Before my husband was my husband he was my best friend. We did everything together, but not in that clingy- can't breathe if we are apart-sort of way. Just two people who like each other a lot spending time together. I made no attempt to hide the fact that I was madly in love...

    I Need To.. But...

    I just can't bring myself completely to forgive them. I mean, in the end who was hurt? Me. Who got lied to? Me. Who believed every word you said? Me. I'm paying the price now.... I can't believe I let myself fall into the trap. But the point is, you don't seem to care. You don...

    Needing To Let Go Of The Past Already

    I've wasted a lot of time being obsessed about my man's ex girlfriend. I met him years ago and we had a few dates, and then he got back together with her. I was not heartbroken because we only had a short time together and I wasn't over my ex either. So it was pretty mutual. Then...
