    Not once not twice but multiple times.

    Given my slight OCD personality and the addictive nature of love it is unavoidable. The high of infatuation is similar to using cocaine I believe. Not that I have ever used cocaine or ever will but I guess I am somehow addicted to the feeling of love - so is this making me...

    My recent break up has almost nearly crushed me.

    I'm still trying to pick up the pieces but am struggling more than I ever have before. I had planned forever with him and now he'll never be apart of my life again.

    I thought I had wasted 8 years on my recent ex.

    It was a hard eight years and it turned out she didn't really love me, she just didn't want to be alone. There is more to the story, but that's a whole different post. The point of this post is to say that I realize those years weren't wasted after all. From that relationship I...

    I hate when all I want in life is someone

    who can be there for me and support me. I've wasted all my life with people who want to cheat, lie and make excuses. Sometimes I want someone to text me and tell me 'You're gonna be okay' πŸ˜ΆπŸ™ˆ

    or another? My only regret is that I wasted 5 freakin years!!! That's 60 months! 1800 days!!! (on an average of 30 calender days so probably more) ~face palm~ Up side is that I learned a lot about myself enabling me to grow so much!

    Sucks because your instincts are warning you

    and you don't listen because you love that person so much you want to be wrong. What happens your instincts were right all along and you wasted years you won't get back. Listen to you're instincts people often they're the only friends you have.

    Whenever someone asks me,

    "Why don't you talk to anyone else?" I reply, "Because I don't want to waste time with people who'll make me feel unhappy." Seriously. I've spent way too much of my valuable time with people who were complete ********. Now look what happened. I got low self-esteem.
