    I feel like now that im not in a relationship,

    I can now take this time away from my boyfriend to focus on myself and do better things and I also feel like I need to sort out my priorities and focus on the good things in life :) I am slowly getting there..

    It Is Time.

    To think for me and only me.  I cannot waste anymore time thinking about someone else's best interest.  I need to move forward with my life and it's time to start knocking people out of the way to get what I want and take control!
