I am so grateful for the people who stay, because they are so much more than the people who leave. They are stronger; they are better.
I am always full.
For years, it was me, and do not pretend it wasn’t. Do not deny that you loved me, that I was your world and you mine.
I believe in calling loved ones regularly,
telling them ‘I love you’
and being specific about why.
We hear bad news and we aren’t even surprised. Of course another tragedy occurs; that is what happens in our lives.
How can I be friends with someone I have no trust for? How can I turn to you as someone to confide in when you took my confidence and shattered it?
I feel like I am constantly in a state of waiting.
Being a guarded person, sharing personal things about my life has been very stressful.
