    I Did It

    Yesterday I ended things. Over two years worth of phone calls, emails, IMs, Skype and letters flood my memory. It was the hardest thing I have had to do in a long time. It was only when he realised I was breaking up with him that he took our conversation seriously. He says he...

    List That Backfired On Its Purpose

    I made a list to explain to my friend why I still think about a guy I should have let go 3 years ago. I was hoping that if I list out what I do and don't like about him, I could track my own thoughts and see things differently. However, my psycho-crush on a guy who lives hours...

    My "goodbye text" (my unanswered good bye

    text): Nickleback "Far Away" - I'm sure you know it. I was going to play it for you last night but it doesn't matter tho. On my shelf you must MUST go. You meeting someone like [your new gf] is all I ever hoped for you from the start. I never thought I'd fall for you in the...

    Ok so if you follow my posts you will see,

    I had an affair, then my husband wanted an open marriage, but I continued my affair and then told him about it. He said I could continue the affair but lo and behold, the OM doesn't feel particularly happy that I now have permission. He is distancing himself. Did he only like it...

    I need to let go of "the idea" of him.

    ...of the "us" that never was or will be. I need to be thankful for the blessing that my husband is to me and my children. I need to be patient that this storm will pass and that I do not need to set a new course. I have not cried over my lost lover today, only a small twang of...

    Do they ever become just someone

    that you used to kniw? Does the ache ever go away? Small town living is getting the best of me. I hear or see every new step he takes.Its enough to drive a person insane. gut wrenching!! positive stories of moving on after being broken are needed now if anyone has any.
