    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.

    Still Smiling

    I may be broken hearted (it will eventually subside) and one thing for sure, I still smile and will keep smiling all the way to my death bed.

    How Many of You Are Just Like Me?

    I am a woman composed of hundreds of broken pieces and there are days when it feels like my heart is too shattered for it to continue beating. I fear I may never have someone fall in love -with me- again. I know I am in love with a couple of people right now and I know for...

    It's Just Easier

    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...

    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...
