The Rush

You’re an the open wound I want to keep open, I’m not allowing a skin to heal over it. It’s like I need to keep it open, it hurts like hell to leave it alone, more so than letting the scab grow over it. I know you say that we broke up at Christmas but … Read moreThe Rush

Don’t Worship False Heroes

I wanted to write about having false hope in people. These people may be very close to you, family, friends and you may have known them your whole life. You may depend on them in a lot of ways, to keep you motivated, on the straight and narrow, to offer advice and their point of … Read moreDon’t Worship False Heroes

Let Me Be

Just because I’m not an oracle of calmness doesn’t mean that I’m irrational. Just because I’m angry at you and your friends and your family doesn’t mean that I’m an unkind person. Honestly, I don’t express such anger unless provoked. Having all the people around you stand and judge me, say I’m unsuitable, say I’m … Read moreLet Me Be

Having a Real Love

I keep seeing these articles about having “almost love”. An “almost relationship”. Something that either wasn’t felt by both people in the relationship or a relationship that wasn’t allowed to develop fully in some way. That’s what I gather from these phrases. I didn’t have an “almost love or relationship” I had the full package. … Read moreHaving a Real Love

Overthinking is Evil

You know what the biggest challenge for me is? Overthinking. I absolutely hate it!   I sent someone a text message the other day, and instead of “I’m okay!” they wrote “I’m okay.” I thought to myself: “She used a period instead of an exclamation point! Is she dying? Oh, (bleep). Do I have to plan a funeral? Or … Read moreOverthinking is Evil

Everything I Never Told You

There are people who’ve been through extreme difficulties in their life that will probably tell you something like: “I’m saying this to you now because I know what it’s like. It’s really important that you catch yourself before you fall.” I’d say that it’s actually important that you let yourself fall. After I came to terms with my … Read moreEverything I Never Told You

When you Know, Let Them Go

When you know, you know. When you’ve put everything into your relationship and somehow suddenly it all goes spiraling out of control, you need to know that it is not down to you. When you have adapted and changed and taken on things which interest your partner to help them feel comfortable and  purposeful, you … Read moreWhen you Know, Let Them Go

Ideology

Sebastian Blood said: “Most believe there are two types of people who go into a crucible. The ones who become stronger from the experience and survive it, and the ones who die. But there’s a third type. The ones who learn to love the fire and choose to stay in their crucible because it’s easier to … Read moreIdeology

Rebirth

Each year on January 1st, we look back at all the things we’ve gone through and survived, everything we’ve learned, and we think of ways to make the upcoming year even better than the one that came before. Looking back at 2017, here’s what I’ve learned. A bad day doesn’t equal a bad life. Bad … Read moreRebirth
