I Need to Let Go

    I need to let go of my past,

    as well as I need to let go of always getting back to my past. I need to break that habit and I need to start believing that best days are yet to come. :(

    This Is Something I Am Learning

    I hold grudges for WAY too long - I know I do.  And I am trying hard as hell to feel and express my feelings, so I can acknowledge them and let them go.  I know this is imperative - my therapist says that I have to do this to release...

    10 years for my life has been wasted on someone

    that I never gave up on . He is a struggling herion addict and I stuck through him in everything. Every time we went to jail I was there and never lost hope. He just recently got out and told me he didn't have time to deal with being in a relationship with me. After all the time...

    He was my first love.

    I haven't been able to let go. But I need to. I dream about him regularly and think about him regularly. I'm with someone else and have been for the past 4 years. It makes it difficult when you know your first love likely feels the same way. You guys had that connection. And...

    Letting Go

    it’s ironic that the people you love most are the very same one’s who can hurt you the most, too. having said that, i find i have no real conclusions to make nor any theories to present here. but still having said that, it does not make it a lie nor a heresy...

    What happened is done

    and over with, it's time for me to let it go. If I keep it in any longer I'll break down. Leave it in the past.

    Giving up doesn't always mean you are weak,

    sometimes it means that you are strong enough to let go.

    I know that I can never have you.

    I'm not even sure things would work out between us in the end. I keep hoping that they will, but they won't. I can feel it. You've been my anchor for so long now that I don't know how to venture back into the world without you. We've shared so many firsts, so many good...

    I can let you go now.

    I was surprised by how comfortable I still am around you. Just like old friends. By the end our friendship was stronger than our relationship anyway. I didn't think we'd be able to remain friends, I thought it would hurt too much because I know I'll never stop loving you. But...

    It is time for me to let him go and to detach myself away from the sexual part of the relationship if not from the entire thing. I need all your support for this move, are you with me??

    It's Coming

    Last time I let my mum go, I couldn't stop crying. I feared her and I was far too afraid of her to tell her in person, so I called her while with my dad. My dad had talked to me before. I'd been so upset and depressed those few days, and decided that I felt extremely unsafe and...

    My Inspiration

    Music is, has, and will always be, my source of comfort and inspiration. I could not find a more befitting song for this group, than by Kenny G, one of my absolute favorite musicians. This song is the perfect ending to this most unusual day for me.

    Undeniably, The biggest thing

    that I must let go of, is the fear of the unknown. The pain, whether there is any, death and no longer in a living body, watching as all your fellow creatures mourn for you, not knowing what the intentions are for something being around. It's time to let go of this fear, perhaps...

    I need to let go of him,

    but I won't let myself. I think I'm afraid he was my last chance at happiness (even though I'm pretty sure he wasn't "the one" either) I need to let go of the anger and resentment I feel for my husband. What's done is done and he is who he is. My expectations were my fault...

    Too Long...Too Much

    I love him, but it's been too many times he has shown me that he is just not loyal or faithful. How many chances do you give? There comes a point where you are just allowing it, there are no real consequences, so of course it will continue. Even if it's not in person. Right now...
