    You never know how strong you are until you know that being strong is the only choice you have. So when relationships break what appears to be the end may really be a new beginning for you. Life goes on , whether your love is dead or alive. When you are hurt so much , don't say that you are getting used to it. But say , I am thankful for my struggle because without it I wouldn't have stumbled across my strength. We take chances , make mistakes , that's how we grow. Pain nourishes our courage. We have to fall in order to practice being brave. Progress in impossible without change , and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything. What appears to be the end may really be a new beginning. So make a U turn , change your direction and go on a new path. It can lead you to a better way of live , a better partner , and a new type of happiness.
    • That was really well said.

    • Life is a journey and love is apart of it. Where there is love , there needs to be love. Then your life becomes sweet.

      Thank you for these motivating words. I am actually crying while writing this. I know man are supposed to be strong and all that but F that. I am not emotionally strong. I liked this girl older than me (junior) for 2 months. I thought she liked me back I mustered all the courage inside of me and I texted her.
      "Hi, is this (name)."
      She said, "who is this." I said "its (name)"
      She said, "Hi, do you need something"
      I said, "No, whats up"
      No response. I know people are going to poke at my texting habits but only my heart knows how much courage it took to send that message. Since that time 9:00 PM I haven't received any more messages back. I have no idea what to do? She is shy but all my heart and mind are conveying to me is a pain. I am sorry to barge in here like this but I needed to get this off my chest.

  • Nice job,
