    to express my feelings when I feel them rather then keeping them bottled up. It makes one hell of a difference. And it makes me happy too big_smile

    Time waits for no one..I have learned that when you have someone that loves you dearly, from the bottom og=f their heart. Someone that takes care of. provides for you and your family, lets you drop him off at work so you can keep HIS car all day, pays your bills even when he had his own apartment and doesnt even live with you, shower you with expensive gifts, purses, shoes, clothes and jewelry and still gives you an allowance every week, respects you and just will do any and everything to keep you happy. Never take that person for granted. One day you will look up and he will no longer be there anymore just because you was not ready to be loved unconditionally!!!

    a) That you shouldn't always be too ready to compromise
    b) That if for some reason you are not together it is probably a very good reason
    c) That love is always worth fighting for smile

    When it come to the one that gone away, I have quiet a few and the turth is that, I never regreated it.  Because I believe I did the right thing.  When it come to relationship I got a few motto:

    1.  Remeber this girl no matter how much you like her or want her, having her is not a necessity, it is a luxary.  So, don't go around pulling those romeo and julia crap, it is stupid.

    2.  Remeber what you once have, but learn when you need to let it go

    3.  Always remeber, will you feel sadden by them leaving, if the two of you never met, sometime that is what you need to do, pretend you never met.

    I had let go of a lot of girls that can be consider as true love and I never regreated any of them, because in my opinion, I did the right thing, by letting them go.  It suck, but if I am to do it again, I'll do the exact same thing, all over again.

    Grab the "brass ring" when you have the chance and have no regrets.  I learned what it was like to have a truly mutual, genuine love.  The difference of loving and being IN love.  How strong you can feel when someone is in your corner.  What it feels like to give your heart freely and completely.  What real passion is.  What it's like to feel truly beautiful...and what it feels like when your soul turns to dust.
