I Need to Say Goodbye and Move On

    Good-bye And Good Riddance!

    For the past three years, I've been fixated on my ex-girlfriend - something I'm not too proud of. Although I can't good-bye to my ex in person, I can good-bye to her memories, which I've taken the painful effort of erasing.

    I either need to live this life

    or leave it. I've been in this marriage void for too many years. I'm married but not. I'm married so im not free to find someone to love and care about me but not married because we don't touch or talk or anything any more

    there is so much pain in my heart.

    Trauma, loss, lies, and dead hope is inside it. How do I say goodbye to memories that is for forever? How do you move on from people whom you'd want to stay with? It's not a want anymore. It's a need to move on. A Need to let go. A need to be free.

    And pretty thoroughly (;P). I just haven't gotten around to the goodbye part of it yet. I know I should, my gawd, my best friend was telling me to do just get it over with months ago but I just...didn't. I think its because I suck at official goodbyes. In the past, leaving worked...
