Thank you for making me realize that I didn't lose you, you lost me

To My Ex-Boyfriend, Thanks For Making Me Strong

Dear, You,

It has been about a month now since we've last spoken or seen another.

This past month has been a nightmare, but it has also been beautiful in a strange kind of way. After you shattered my spirit, I came rising back up, and I became a stronger person.

You were my best friend and my boyfriend for a matter of fact. You made me so happy, I do not think you realized how truly happy you made me.

You were the light that brightened up my dark skies.

You meant the world to me... but that was not enough, was it?

The night you left me, I felt my heart shatter on the floor. I built up a wall, and you tore it down. When I walked you out I collapsed and broke down into tears.

My friends tried to console me, but my heart was in ruins. Then I learned the truth, and that was what broke my heart even more.

The first day was the worst, smiling was the hardest thing. You were stuck in my head like a song on repeat, and god I just wanted this pain and the image of your face to disappear.

And your laugh, the laugh I fell in love with haunted me at night.

The days seemed to drag by, and I shut people out. But each day, I realized that from the beginning you were toxic towards me, but I still loved you.

You tried to change things about me, like my hair, my personality, who I hung out with and how I looked at myself.

That was never OK, why did you do that to me?

You put me down a lot, saying I had a big belly, and I just hated my body.

The things you said to me too, and the warnings my friend gave to me about you--they were right, and I wish I listened to them would have saved me so much pain.

My friends and family helped me get back on my feet. And time truly does heal the pain, and now I'm starting to slowly, but surely, forget about you.

Just like you forgot about me.

I want to thank you for breaking me. I hope you know what you have lost, and I hope whoever you're with next is never EVER treated like this.

I don't have any hatred towards you, just sadness, and a little bit of anger. I wish you thought of the consequences of what you did and what your actions would end up doing to me.

I do wish you the best, and I want you to know that I'm OK. I will find someone who will love me for me the awkward person that I am.

Someone who will stand by me when my world falls apart because you couldn't fit those shoes.

Thank you for making me realize that I didn't lose you.

You lost me


The girl who loved you

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
