    This Would Let You Go

    I didn't write this. I wish I did. It's credited to lots of different people, most frequently someone named Reverand Safire Rose. Whoever wrote it, it's breathtakingly beautiful...so I wanted to share it with you. Without a thought or a word, she let go. She let go of fear. She...

    But I can't let go of my past or anything I should let go of .

    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...

    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...

    It's Time Now

    It's been the fourth time. You hurt me once I blamed myself. I thought I wasn't good enough and took all the pain smothering inside me. I tried to be satisfied being your best friend and never anything more. I even almost convinced myself once or twice I was content. It was a...

    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??

    Grieving...this s***t sux.

    I cannot even think straight which is really confusing. Losing a parent unexpectedly or at all I'd imagine, is something you can never be prepared for...dies anyone actually read this crap? Sorry I think I'm at anger now...

    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.

    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...

    Anger

    Can I let it go? I can't imagine ever not feeling angry. It seems almost impossible sometimes. If I'm not facing those I consider enemies or trying to defend people I care about against their enemies, then what the hell am I supposed to do? I wonder, when was the last time I felt...

    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...

    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...

    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...
