    and a bit hurt. I had sent him flirty texts and he never replied so i gave myself two days to calm down and basically just told him literally i am upset with you. So he asked why and i told him so i got it out of my system. He didnt apologize but since i told him he's been...

    I tend to judge people only

    after they act rather then based on just their words. This means I give them the benefit of the doubt, and leaves me vulnerable. But, it also helps me to make a better decision about a person'a character.

    I'm in love with a mm.

    I'm married as well. We were together for 8 years and prior to that we were the best of friends. We were coworkers for 16 years. I sat within 5 feet of him every day. We laughed together, cried together, celebrated together. He's the only man that has ever loved me. Truly loved...

    Loved this poem found on Twitter: If you stay,

    stay forever If you go, do it today. If you change, change for the better. If you talk, mean what you say. Today has been a pretty darn good day. I had today off & spent a fair portion of the day conversing with someone who makes me smile. I'm thankful for this person, this...

    I hate so talk before I do something.

    Because I get jittery and I really wanna move. So simply put, I don't talk about it. I just do it. When my friends need help in something I don't talk to them, I just help. When they have problems or are depressed, I don't talk, I hit them on the head and say cheer up. Then I go...

    A lot of people tend to promise something

    but like what other people say.. "All promises are made to be broken." So do his promises that's why I never trust words. The last time I believed in those, I got fooled.

    Redneck happenstance

    if the week. I built a trolling rid holder for my boat. People actually commented on how nice it is. Funny, built out if PVC and painted color of my boat. Does look good. I'm a good example of what happens when a redneck makes a decent salary.

    I try to not be such a redneck.

    Well, it's time for me to stop dwelling on

    what's happened so I'll be working on a new story. I'm not sure which subject I will chose but there are many to choose from. Some are mine but others have come from fellow epers. I hope you enjoy my new work. :)

    Some people are so good with words.

    There are a lot that will say the rights words at the right time but it's always the actions that matter. I judge through actions not words. 👍👍

    How High Is Your Balance In Your Emotional Bank Account?

    Why is it that some people have to be

    so mean? There are good people too of course. Then there are those who act nice but aren't. They suck you into their lies. They make you feel safe then cut you deep. It's appalling that these people prey on the lonely and insecure. Even more so the emotions released are a blend...

    All my life people have told me

    that they love me, or was my friend, or would always be there for me but that wasn't always true. I think that if your going to have the balls to say stuff like that to my face and have me believe it then you provide the goods to back it up. It's as simple as that!

    Showing Somebody You Care.

    When did it become bad, for people to show another that they care about them? I don't mean, saying, I love you or I care about you. I believe in showing the person(s). Do something nice for the person you care about everyday.

    I believed what a man's words told me about him.

    I fell in love with him and he with me. We spent the last nearly two weeks together at his home. He just drove "us" back to my home, ostensibly so that I could take care of things in order to become his ... I don't even know what. When he'd put all of my luggage in the cart...

    Said Another Way....

    I have a mentor that says it this way, "What you do speaks so loudly, what you say i can not hear!" I love listening to him, he has learned so much and has a unique way of taking out of the box to look at things just enough different to learn too. :)

    They Really Do.

    A promise can be broken just as fast as it was made. Words mean something but it the actions behind the words that mean more. I have always said it's the little things that matter the most. you can say something but showing it is always better and gets your point across better...

    I can tell if someone cares

    Their Actions Speak So Loudly,

    I Can't Hear A Word They Say!! Doesn't ever amount to anything those meaningless words repeated over and over, because their needle is continually stuck on the same 3 sentences. Pathetic.

    than words. In MY opinion....What you do or do NOT do, are a direct result of your thoughts and a conscious decision, to either act or not. No matter the circumstance, how you react is YOUR decision and you are responsible for it. I don't buy into the excuses of I didn't mean to...
