Why?!?

So I'm a debt collector and to say it is a crappy job would be an understatement. Sure the money is great but getting cursed at an threatened isn't how I like to spend 8 hours of my day everyday. More on this later...

It's been a while.....

hey there bloggers,
I have been gone for quite awhile, but I have been busy with some major life changes. I have moved in with my amazing boyfriend, got a new job away from the serving industry, and I am about to get some pretty adorable kittens soon. So wait until I start posting pictures of them. :)

I have a lot to catch y'all up on and I can't wait!

Stay tune!
:):)
I won't disappear this time.

Realization

Hello blog viewers, I have asked a lot from you all this last month. I've asked if I should be in a long distance and how much I should go through when it comes to love. Not to disrespect any of you but I now know that I need to follow my heart and more importantly keep the mentioned loved one in mind. I need to ask him what he wants instead of what y'all think is right. I hope that he feels the way I do and I pray that I can get through the tough times ahead, either if he chooses to be apart or if I have to be separated from him for a little while. His happiness is just as important as mine. Because in the end his opinion and what he wants is what matters. Wish me luck.

Confessions from a half broken heart

My heart can't take much heartache and sadness, I am at the point of realizing that maybe my heart just isn't meant for love. I love with all my heart and I know that not all people can share the same love as me, but sometimes it isn't fair to just settle for anything less than what I give. Don't get me wrong, I love this person more than I have ever loved anything, but always feel rejected and wrong is starting to tear me down. I know it isn't fair for him to ask him to shower me with love and everything, but I would be nice to every now and then to feel like he feels the same way. Part of me feels like that won't ever happen. Is it wrong that I wouldn't care if he ever share warm thoughts to me, because I would rather deal with my self pity than lose him? I guess when it comes to love you have to think about the other person more, I just wonder if he has ever put me Ahead. It doesn't matter really, I will go on being with him, because that's what I want, I will just have to wait till he changes or I get fed up. :/
