    I Walked Away Feeling Better

    Last night I indulged myself in fried calamari, fish and chips, chips with bean dips. I walked away from the bathroom this morning feeling much better :)

    My Mum

    I walked away from my relationship with my mother. It has been roughly 18months since we last spoke and in all honesty I haven't missed her on bit! Some people are just toxic and it rubs off on you. She abused me emotionally all my life, constantly putting me down or belittling...

    I chose to walk away from the strongest love

    I've ever known, for it was the lesser of two evils. You see, we were going down soulmate, and with us my love for you. So I walked... I can't bear even the thought of a life without this love, so I walked because the pain that comes with this seemed far easier than the pain of...

    Finally, It's Over

    After six months, I have finally let go and walked away from the man who has now twice screwed me over. The first time he had the best of intentions, so I forgave him left my boyfriend to be with him. But this time he has no way to explain himself, his only reasoning is...

    Just Couldn't Do It Anymore

    Well over a year.   I tried everything to get along to make it work.  We'd split - came back - split - came back - I promised myself that this was the last time.  So I packed my bags this morning and walked out of the front door.  Took a mental day from...

    I haven't walked away from much.  I walked away from lying friends.  Honestly, I walked away from her before she turned on me, but it's better to walk away than argue, right?  Don't go away mad, just go away.

    I walked away from it all,

    I didn't run away from it because I made it clear I was done and walking towards a different path and a different light-which I'm glad I did. People will follow you and try and tear you down no matter how much you make it clear to them you don't anything to do with them, they...

    I walked away from my emotions.

    From my feelings. From friendship. From love. From joy. From my laughter. I walked away because I was too tired to pay the price for them.

    Why push me away when I'm trying to get closer to you. All I think about is you. I wish I didn't because I'd at least have my heart together.
