    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...

    Will I Be Able To?

    There are a few people I need to forgive. Each will be very difficult in their own way. Each one has abused me to different degrees and in different ways. I don't know that I hate any of them. Hate is such a strong word and emotion. Is it hate when the mere mention of one person...

    To whom this specifically concerns, I know you go on this website to read stories I've written. You say it's because you missed me, my writing, and want to feel connected. There is a lot of misunderstanding when the connection can be made in more direct ways? I would...

    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...
