Stolen MeMe

I grabbed this from Serenity (too lazy to link) because I was bored:

10 Things I Wish I Could Say to 10 different people:

4. You are the reason why I breathe
5. Sometimes I look at you and horrible memories come to mind. But I love you more than life.
6. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to forgive you.
7. I’m glad she left you for a woman!

9. Thanks for being there.
10. I’m glad things will never be how they used to be.

"4. I don’t write as well as I thought."

Interesting. Unfounded, but interesting none the less.

I understand about the desire to have a one-on-one about boundaries. Still, I think that some folk prefer to stay stuck.

#7 on Things About Myself was profound and an honest answer.

Your confession goes ditto for me. I will go to extremes to avoid anyone I have cut from my life story. When I'm through, I'm through!
