    LAUGHING Outside Crying Inside

    When I was a little kid, I couldn't wait to grow up and fall in love...Now that I have fallen in love, I realized that wounded knees are easier to heal than broken hearts... I'd been in a relationship for almost 3 years (my first love). I thought everything will be okay. We love...

    I Am.

    I am brokenhearted. I am smiling most of the time. When I don't smile, when I show people my sad soul, I frighten them away. That's just the way it is for me. I'm sure there's more people like that in this world. I'm just wondering how many.

    I hope that you are, I know I am.

    It wasn't easy but you have to decide if you're going to die or fight. I hope you fight because there is so much power to validating and approving of yourself vs hoping that someone else will. Do the things you love and love doing them again, pray, laugh, yes I said laugh...

    All That Remains

    Moving on doesn't always mean your heart isn't broken anymore. I smile because there is always something to smile about, but my heart is still broken despite me having moved on. My heartbreak was caused by someone whom I thought was my friend. In the end, he turned out to be a...
