    If nothing else, I wish I had the control to crush love. To eradicate it from my very being. To stop caring about a person who at one point....well, they felt important.But they're nothing. Nothing to me any more. And I still have this blasted aching feeling, and I want rid of it...

    Separate

    I sometimes think my emotions are a separate entity with a mind of their own.  They creep up on me when I least expect it.   I had such a happy morning, just doing chores around the house and messing and cuddling with my dogs.  Mugs of tea and toast and half...

    It Would Be Nice

    then I wouldn't be hurt so much and not as trusting as I should be.  I am practicing this "be more trusting" theory.  Sucking so far.
