    Well,

    I guess I am leaving my past behind me but it seems others cannot. They are trying so hard but are getting nowhere with it because I was raised to be strong and move forward.

    New Beginning

    I broke up with my girlfriend of 5 years on Wednesday, I leave my job of 6 years next week Wednesday and all I feel at the moment is nothing. I don't feel as if I'm in denial as I don't really feel a lot. Historically I have been afraid of change and lacking in self confidence...

    Moving On

    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...

    One day when I have enough money saved,

    I'm gonna just pack my bags and go. I don't have to have a destination or anything because I know that no matter where it is I go, it'll be better off than here. Here, I have ties, people who hold me back, who would just hate to see me be more than I am today. But the sad fact...

    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...
