    I Just Wish This Wasn't Happening.

    I never thought I could miss someone so much. Jared got to call me today and all I could do was cry. I hate myself for not staying strong for him. He deserves someone who will keep him happy. All I can do is cry. I miss him so much, but I feel so guilty for being sad. He's the...
