    I use to but not anymore,

    I got my feet firmly rooted to the fair. I learn quickly to spot the run around and games I use to text and call a lot, bought presents and wanted to be with you a lot. Now I text when only you text, if you don't call I never will. and whenever you don't wanna go out tonight I...

    An Ex Husband And His Daughter...

    I WASTED time on a man who was abusive to me. I thought I married a "good christian, loving, family man and father" to his daughter. He lied, stole, cheated, betrayed and back stabbed me for years before I ever suspected him or realized that he had been doing it the prior 10...

    R.I.P To The Feelings That I Had For You.

    Finally. It was gone. Completely gone. But it wasn't that easy. Killing that feeling is not a piece of cake. But now its not there anymore. It seems like the waves of time finally washed it away from the shores of my heart. It was amazing. Felt like a heavy load was finally...

    I wasted 6 years of my life trying to save my

    husband from meth addiction. I feel like I failed. He put me through hell. I finally learned after 6 years I couldn't help him. I divorced him and walked away. He continues to use. So happy to be away from him!

    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

    All those nights I stayed up with you,

    you told me you loved me, I believed it, fell for you, told you, you didn't like me anymore, the nights got longer, conversations got shorter, our laughs were about nothing anymore, just a piece of dust floating in the air, oh well, I let you go, I guess that was my mistake.

    Lucky for me, I'm still very young

    but the hurt is still there. I had been dating this guy off and on for four years and every time we'd break up, it'd be for the same reasons (lazy with no ambition, treats me poorly, dismisses my feelings, puts no effort into the relationship). I really loved him and I wanted us...

    It always had to be on your terms.

    Always. There was never any compromise with you. Your time seemed more important than mine. You tell me it's probably not a good time, I said fine, you call me when it is. End of that. I'm not going to chase you, and you didn't want me to. You don't want to chase me, you've made...

    I don't think anything is necessarily a waste

    of time. I think we learn something from everything we've done and been through. I spent a lot of years with a guy that was toxic for me, but even so, I don't consider it wasted time. I just reflect on what I went through, and learn from it in order to better myself.

    Sometimes you just have to let go

    and let God. Some people are only in your life for a season. The person I loved was an outstanding person but then again you have to be very careful who you love because the person you fell in love with May not be the same person. Why? There personality may change.

    You said you'll return after you serve as a soldier. I waited for you for so long. I thought you'll be the one and only. I suppose i was wrong. Such a shame!

    That's the ****** about being the other woman,

    you don't get to have hurt feelings. The knowledge you aren't his only one...not even his only "other" one-is not supposed to bother you. You're a hypocrite if it does. Maybe I'm just acting paranoid, but I have a sneaky feeling that message wasn't for me. The choices: be...

    18 Year Old Virgin Meets 31 Year Old Don Juan. Result: Disaster!

    So I met Everett when I was 18, virginal, and hopelessly naive. He was 31, devilishly handsome, smart, charming, yada yada yada. He had a girlfriend, but I was in love with him, so as much as I'm not proud of it now, I was "the other woman" for several years because he kept...

    Posh girl. She meant the world to me.

    She was the first girl I'd ever properly got involved with. Turns out she was quite superficial and led me on for ages. I hated her for a while, but I tried viewing the situation from her perspective. I never forgave her for screwing with my life for 2 years, but at least I...

    Can You Waste You're Time On Someone?

    No matter how terrible a relationship is, if you learned something, or gained something beautiful (like a child)... it doesn't matter if the relationship ended. It was not a waste. Even if you had fun when you were with them, or just realized that you wouldn't work out in the...

    He does not even express any interest or feelings towards me anymore. It's been a while and I still cannot shake this person from my brain. I know it's stupid. I feel stupid. Oh well guess I will get over it/him eventually.
