I Wasted My Time On Someone

    Little did he know, him ignoring me taught me

    how to live without him. At the time, I was confused and distraught. I wanted to know why. I began to blame myself by dissecting my personality and finding new flaws. Maybe I wasn't pretty enough. Maybe I was boring. Maybe...SIGH!! Whatever. Now, looking back I thank him...

    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.

    I don't want to say wasted

    because it makes me sad to think a person is a waste. But I spent almost two and a half years on this guy who I recently found out cheated on me multiple times with his ex and like any foolish girl I forgave him every time... I don't know if I was in lust or love with him but...

    Men give so many mixed messages you have to

    judge their intentions by their actions. The bottom line is that if he likes you, you won't be left questioning if he likes you. Period. If he wants you, he will damned well move heaven and earth and be with you. End of story. If not, do yourself a favour and move on. Now.

    My so called best friend!

    She was my best friend for 3 years but she threw me away for her new friends at college! She lives only 45 minutes away but can't pick up the phone and ask me how I'm doing! (There's more to the story that I can not tell)

    Are there any men that don't think of

    themselves first? Who don't only worry about when their hurting? I think life would be easier if I were a lesbian

    Nothing begins and nothing ends

    that is not paid for with pain and tears. Curse the day and pray for light knowing that you have given all and found no limit to these sorrows. My glass was half full and you held it in your hand and crushed it; all that remains are the broken slivers of glass. Looking back, it...

    We were super good friends. But then she found out I lied about myself. (I did it because I was sick of rejection). Anyway that fight lasted a year and then I started trying to become friends with her again. It's to the point I know I should delete her from my life. But I cant...

    What do I get in the end? I get accused of cheating, she tries turning my friends against me, tells everyone (even random people) that I used her and I'm made out to be a bad person. Keep in mind she was straight into another relationship three weeks after she broke up with me...

    I can't stop thinking about him.

    Its been three months since I saw him and I can see, smell, and hear him like it was today. I am so in love with him. I know we weren't meant to be together, but that doesn't make it hurt any less.
