Cautionary, not Instructive
dearoldlove: I only mentioned how emotionally abusive my exes were so that you’d feel bad for me. Instead, you took it as a step-by-step guide.

Today I packed up a good bit of all my belongings in my dorm room. I took down all my Zaps, posters, wall décor, etc., and packed up the majority of my winter clothes. It was one of those bittersweet kind of things. I’m going to miss living with all of my friends, but I wont miss crazy ass girls screaming in the hallways at 4:00 AM, community bathrooms, and paper thin walls. I have zero motivation...

dearoldlove: If there was ever a time I could use some kindness from you to restore my faith in the world, now would be good. Six months ago would have been even better.

this, too, shall pass away
by: Lanta Wilson Smith When some great sorrow, like a mighty river, Flows through your life with peace-destroying power And dearest things are swept from sight forever, Say to your heart each trying hour: “This, too, shall pass away.” When ceaseless toil has hushed your song of gladness, And you have grown almost too tired to pray, Let this truth banish from your heat its...

This weekend, I took a trip to Auburn, Alabama for the very first time in my life. I went to the infamous RODEO…which was an experience unlike any other. With everyone dressed up like sweaty rednecks, I truly felt like I was in the Heart of Dixie. It was complete with cowboy hats, boots and spurs, wife beaters—you name it, they had it. And I can honestly say I fell in...

from God, with love
Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone, to have a deep soul relationship with another, to be loved thoroughly and exclusively. But God, to the Christian, says, “No, not until you are satisfied and content with living, loved only by me alone to have an intensely personal and unique relationship. I love you my child, and until you discover that only in me is your satisfaction...
Ever heard that expression, “When it rains, it pours”? Well, I agree with this completely, but I’ve noticed that this phrase applies more to change rather than anything else. It’s so easy to get caught up in the same patterns of everyday life— and lately, my life has been such a whirlwind, with changes flying at me one right after another. But you know what? It’s been so refreshing. Scary at...
Past or Future Only
dearoldlove: I always knew I’d be unable to keep your attention. You’re only excited by potential future loves, who you can fantasize about longingly; or departed loves, made desirable again by nostalgia.
dearoldlove: You had the nerve to call my ex-boyfriend a douchebag. I had no idea that you would end up making him look like Jesus.
near to you
He and I had something beautiful But so dysfunctional, it couldn’t last I loved him so, but I let him go Because I knew he’d never love me back Such pain as this Shouldn’t have to be experienced I’m still reeling from the loss, I’m still a little bit delirious Near to you, I am healing But it’s taking so long Because though he’s gone And you are wonderful,...
