    I think I'm wasting my life.

    Been with her for over two years, money blood sweat tears... She's a heroin addict trying to help her. Sometimes it's good and she says the right things but is that it she's just saying? There are times she seems sincere and cries when we talk about certain things... I want to...

    It makes me so mad I just realized this now.

    There was this guy I liked so much, and I thought of him all the time, and he knew I liked him too. All he did was take advantage of me saying, oh you like me so can you do this for me? And I always did, but then I realized he doesn't even like me. So I moved on. Looks are...

    Ever since this girl first walked into our

    school for the first time, I couldn't take my eyes off her, and I know I probably wasn't the only one gazing at her beauty. Through my mind I was thinking "you know what, I'm gonna try to talk to her, I need to man up, I need to know how to talk to a girl and here's my first...

    I refuse to waste so much time caring about

    what other people think of me. I know how Golden I am and shouldn't let anyone change that not even for a moment. Each moment wasted says you aren't grateful for the many blessings you receive.... So Ive been thinking lol

    And he cheated. And then I cried

    for 24hrs, and he left his family for her. She's slept with 86 people. I'm in such a bad spot in life as is. I've already cut. I see no hope. My heart is shattered. All I did for him. And I was another one to be cheated on. I hope my heart stops beating.

    I wasted my time on many someone's (I guess I

    made some poor choices) but as much as it hurt at the time, I wasn't the first and I won't be the last. Plus it's how you deal with it afterwards that matters and no man is ever going to break me try as he might :D
