    Every Day Gets A Little Better

    I'm starting to feel a little better since the break up. I am truly starting to realize that things were not my fault. I can't wait when the day comes that I am completely over this. Emotionally I have my good days and bad days but I'm making progress.

    He imposes his egocentric definition of love.

    No wonder I didn't feel anything for him to be straightforward.

    I had this idea in my head

    that seemed brilliant at the time. Break up with him, and he will begin to understand my feelings more. "You'll get back together after like 3 days and everything will be fine again"-or so, this is what I truly believed in my mind. Why did I break up with him? What was I trying...
