    I have been too hard on myself,

    i let myself get hurt and let the man i loved take advantage of me, let him take everything away from me, let him take away something so special that i can never ever get back, and the worst part is he left me hanging and left me like we were nothing at all. But it's all over...

    I want to give up these memories of you.

    I want to stop craving for that feeling of euphoria. I want to tell my brain to quit responding to anything that reminds me of how happy we were. I just want to give up everything I was not meant to hold on to.

    I'd never want to fully forget my past.

    Because those bad experiences shaped me into who I am today. Showed me a strength that I wouldn't have otherwise known existed in me. Yes, there are certain specific memories that I would rather not be thought. And pictures I'd rather not see every time I close my eyes. But I...

    Easier said than done.

    I guess the trick is to create better memories to block out the old ones

    Lol I am very much not a nostalgic person.

    . Anyone else?.. I only feel at peace when it's the next day because I HAVE to believe that sunrise sunset actually confines the events of yesterday to yesterday.. AF!

    God's Message To Move On.

    She left me because she had somebody else. It came out of nowhere, she also said 'please don't ever leave me' and 'i will never leave you' and always said that she couldn't wait for our wedding and she even chose our song etc. I helped her get into uni and she quit uni to get a...

    For years I've prayed to God almighty to end my

    pain. I feel alone and unwanted... People tell me I'm beautiful and kind yet they don't care about me. I feel like God wants me to suffer... I feel like I'm not important to society. I wish I wasn't born.

    Why Is This So Hard?

    Every time I see him online I want to chat with him. I've moved on in the sense that I know we won't be together again because it was too complicated. But at least I was expecting that we talk sometimes just to keep in touch. I don't expect to be best friends, I know this is...

    It's hard.They haunt me from time to time.

    No matter how hard I try they will find a way to pop up in my mind. Most of those memories are revolting.I don't even want to think about them. Sometimes they literally take over my present&force me to succumb to agony.

    Moving on can be so hard sometimes. Especially if it's dealing with someone you care about. We don't always want to acknowledge the fact we have to move on sometimes because it hurts. It really does. But I know I can't sit around and soak on the things that is out of my control...
