    But What If

    what if your heart is telling you this is the right person. this is it, what you have been waiting for, wishing for, hoping for, dreaming of.... this is what you want. what if your hearts excitement scares her off? what if you know that you can make her happy? you know that you...

    So my bf comes over after a trip

    and I hug him hello. I'm a hugger. I believe in a good warm hug. He offers one arm in response, then a peck on the lips. Wtf, says my heart. And instead of not saying anything in the interest of avoiding confrontation, I say something. I tell him it makes me feel bad that he...

    Leaving Ep

    I'm sorry guys. I'm leaving. I'll miss you all. But I need to move on. I've done things I never should have, and its all because of this site. I've finally found where I belong. But now I'm not so sure. I've made friends for life, but all I've ever done is drag them down. I need...

    My heart told me I deserved better.

    My heart told me what you were giving me wasn't enough, it told me to hang in there, to give "us" time, to give you a chance because you were worth it. In this one particular experience I should have listened to my head, to listen to what was really going on. My heart told me...

    My heart says I love you and need you but my head tells me to walk away. I let my heart lead me and my head can shut the hell up.

    I Always Mess It Up

    I need to start listening to my heart rather than to what other people tell me. That never works out when you're trauma have a relationship with a guy that every girl knows so well.

    Sometimes having a heart means it can get

    trampled on. I live my life out loud, with an open heart, however, feelings and emotions that sometimes overwhelm me. Most of the time my heart is in the right place, my intentions noble and good. I have been wanting to tell her of my feelings for so long now and was ready to...

    What's Wrong With Me?

    I always chickened out with this girl. I never actually put up a fight, or made any sort of effort to make it work. To make it worse, I was everything I hated. Clingy, over-emotional, and generally an annoyance. Just a bit of dead weight for her to drag around. I'm starting to...

    Yes It'S Time To Be Honest

    I have been asked many times for advice about what to do about love. My answer has always been the same even when my own brother asked and that is "what wouldn't I do for love". Am I just the most naive person out there? I want to believe that love is enough. I have always...

    Too Little, Too Late.

    Head Or Heart?

    Look at me. Watch me cry. Watch me try to pick the pieces of my life up. The life that was once whole, once envied, has not become an object of pity. I stood by you. In your moments of weakness, I held you up. What did you do it return? You pulled me down, you broke me down...
