Just because it wasn’t right, doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt.
It doesn’t mean there’s not weighty disappointment.
It doesn’t mean there’s not painful heartache.
It doesn’t mean there are not a million what ifs.
It just means it wasn’t right.
Not this time around.

I'm sorry there is painful heartache--whether it be yours or someone you love. I don't believe the old adage that time heals, but I do believe the passage of time helps.

(Your photo is breathtaking.)

Striking photo. Sorry for any hurt you are feeling. It is real and must be acknowledged to move on. Your photos are really terrific!

That poem exactly describes my feelings about my break up last week

I know how you feel, so here is a hug *hugs*

T, it does belong to someone I love, and that makes it hard. Time does help.

Kelly, facing "stuff" or 'real' feelings is essential for a real life, right?

Heather, Thank you so much!

Cynthia, Thank you!

K, that is exactly what it was. I'm sorry that you went through that as well. It's never easy, but sometimes, it's right. Keep your chin up, we're sending our good wishes your way.
