Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 132 People

    Really? Seriously?

    well.. you cant break something that's already

    broken. just like you cant fix something that's broken and have it back to normal. if the heart was going to explode it would have already. but instead it broke slowly. now it's just gonna shatter.
