That's it. It's all over.End of story. Where do i go from here? What will I do to ease this pain that's eating up my being. Should I commit suicide? K, what are the ways that i can do that. Overdose, what if it doesn't work out well. I would end up in the emergency room and they would put those huge tubes into my throat to suck up all the poison in my stomach.Ouch that hurts. Should I hang myself? I can imagine loosing my breath slowly as the rope tries to break my neck.That hurts. Should I use a gun...but do I have the guts to shoot at myself knowing the bullet will never miss me.Besides I don't have a gun.How about Harakiri? Nahh, im not japanese. Should I run amuck and just show everybody that I lost my mind.Nah..they will just say I'm so pathetic. And if just in case I might do one of the ways I have mentioned here, will it bring my lover back.Nooooooo (^_^) And he might just be laughing at how crazy I am while thinking how attractive he can be ,for me to go crazy like I do. Honestly,I'm heartbroken now and all these things crossed my mind. But I chose to move on gracefully.And just keep on convincing myself , it is over. (^_^)

You're not alone lipstick. In this crazy world many are in pain. I have a friend, she's really deeply hurt right now.I know how it's really hard to just let go of the person whom you've spent most of your time. You've been thinking that he's the man you want to spent the rest of your life then suddenly with just one mistake it's all gone. All your fantasies are gone. But if I'm in the situation and i still have a chance to save the relationship I will still give it a chance. Especially if the guy also ask for forgiveness and fight for your the our love. But if he dumped you and is not wanting for the relationship to continue, well be glad that he did it before anything has to be sacrificed. Let go. And don't beg for love.

OMG, yes I will not beg for love.We all get that sometimes...we broke some hearts and then boom...we get a dose of our own medicine. I truly believe..that whatever happens, dignity must stay intact.Never, never beg for love.

Falling and rising is the part of our life and some times we win and feel happy but some times when we loose we go sad. But life not ends here and it goes on. None of us can say, World will be no more if this or that will happen. So whenever I stuck in similar situation I push myself more harder to show those who think I am not able to deal but I am the one who can deal with any circumstances, So be brave and start again with more power and more energy. Cheers

I was hurt once. It took me a long time to learn the art of letting go. Even though, my lips say that I'm okay, but I wasn't. But over time, I knew that I have no control over how other people felt about me. There were other things that led me to truly let go of the man I love. Strangely, when I let go, he came back to me. Thus, your title should be the miracle of letting go. I believe something good will come out of your situation. he may not come back to you, but a miracle may happen to you. Just let go, and something really surprising may happen. All the best!

Very well said my dear.That is very true and thank you for reminding me.(^_^) And although i am aware of what might happen from this pain, still have to go through it and feel that knife stabbed in my heart.Takes time to heal...that is really sad.We all just wished that pain would go away that fast.But it doesn't.Just as it takes a miracle to fall in love , it also takes a miracle to heal from a broken heart. I will be ok.Thank you and God bless...

At this moment you can not be given a dose of comforting words because you are numbed by the pain it has caused you. And so all I can say is as the time comes that you can pick up yourself torn into pieces just move on for there are so many to choose from. Chance may come to give you that explanation that good it happened because he is not worth the kind of love you have given him. Find yourself and look for another man and make it the right choice by that time. Do not waste your time thinking about him as he wanders looking for a change.

Nobody is worth killing yourself over. There are plenty of fish out in the sea. If you od anyway all they will do is pump your stomach and send you to the loony bin. Time will heal all wounds but life does go on.

Letting go is always not easy. But I believe time will heal your broken heart. Just be strong. Life has to go on. After all, he's not the only man on this earth.

I sure hope that venting out in myLot help you in what you are feeling right now. It is indeed difficult to let go. I believe it is ok to wallow in what you are feeling right now, however, I hope you can find out a way to accept that it is over. As for me, I always give myself time to grieve, and then, I reflect on the things that had happened to determine the lessons that I have learned from the experience. then, I become excited to have a new start... a new life. I hope that you can let go soon so that you can move on..

You are actually doing great by being here in mylot and just spilling your beans because it means that you are moving on. Most people would just cry their eyes out or eat till their stomachs explode or just be negative to everyone. Now that you've posted something funny simply means that you are slowly realizing that indeed love is nice and losing it could be hurtful but there are still things in life left to be laughing about. Don't worry, you're on the right track. Just remember that you are worth more than any guy's approval. Take care. :)

I think that in this life we all get heartbroken and when we get heartbroken we get sidetrack and loose a bit of ourselves. We loose ourselves so far that we don't know where we are or how to get back. But, if you really try you will find the light that will guide you back. I think you should just try to be happy because happiness is important in our lives and without we aren't really living. Don't let one lover pull you down; whatever he did to you, it shouldn't mark the end of your life or the end of your happiness. Not to mention he isn't depressed about you, he isn't thinking about you or sad because he lost you. So don't waste your energy on him.

We like to hold on to what is precious and vaaluable to us in our libes. it canbe hard to let something go because we feel failure in doing this. the guilt of having met this defeat can make letting go an impossible feat but one that we need to let happen.
