    The Afterglow

    I've always hated romantic comedies, not because they are cheesy, or boring. I hate them because everything always works out for the couple. They struggle through obstacles like all couples do, but then at the end love triumphs. Whether the struggle involves death, or cheating...

    This is me and this is my journey.

    June 2012. Two weeks ago I remembered my first breakup and my most painful heartache. I was barely thirteen when I met him that was April 1996. We became friends. It grew deeper as the years passed by. He went abroad to pursue his studies. I decided to wait for him. We exchanged...

    I never want to remember how it happened,

    I never want to remember his beautiful eyes. Because he destroyed me. Made me give up hope on everything in life. Well it's been 3years and I've finally done it, I don't crave having you back, I don't want you back, because I don't need you anymore and you dropped me along time...

    Only Painful Thing Is The Confusion

    It Took A While To Recover

    Yes, I still remember the feelings although it's been many, many years ago when I was in college. But I look at it as if it just happened yesterday. I think I was 19 at that time. I asked him to give me my journal back because I thought he won't need it anymore. When he...

    My first painful breakup was in 8th grade.

    I was dating this boy I really liked (dare I say LOVED?) but I knew something was wrong because he didn't want to tell anyone we were going out. But I kind of just said "pfft" and told all of my friends anyway. Once the secret was out it wasn't so bad and he wasn't angry. But...

    Guess every break-up is painful in its own way.

    Right or wrong, easy or hard. There is always a deep sadness that comes from leaving someone you have loved.

    because that person hurt me a lot, also because that friendship was made while I was being bullied and later I found out that person didn't like me at all. He just did the same things like all the other boys-made fun of me, back then I was only eleven years old kid who is...
