    I gave her 6 years of my life.

    I loved her at her Worst. She had me at my Best. but, She chose to break my Heart. Now, can a "sorry" change the fact that i became miserable because she left?!

    and still continuing till today. Many who used to be my friends left me and I felt like an outcast in my own town, it is like they feel that I am a burden for them. So I left my town and settled in a city near by, a place where people accepted me as the way I am. I finally found...
