Broken Hearts

I worked there for a year and some change. I poured my heart and soul into his suffering practice. I survived his insufferable wife and odd practices with a smile on my face. I put up with long hours and no help for the entire time and was still one of the lowest paid dental assistants in the area. I gave 100% and often ended up staying until 8pm most nights. Everything was perfect as long as I was able to be used and abused. I literally slaved away for this man so much that I got sick over the summer and they never hired more help or relaxed my load. I turned his unhappy, unorganized mess of an office into a well oiled machine that could keep up with the competition. I found new ways to make the patient comfortable and welcomed. His patients loved me and I loved them. I gave my...

We started out as nothing but acquaintances. Then two years later it turned into hanging out with each other every night for months. It was wonderful. I miss that. I miss the late night trips for frappes at MacDonalds. I miss how easily I could talk to you, even if I couldn't drop the walls I built around myself. I miss your crazy faces and random dance attacks. I miss that you were there for me when I was at my lowest. You didn't know, but you saved me. You saved me from myself. As college started again our lives drove us apart, but for months we tried to see if something would happen. But of course it was too hard. Of course it wasn't meant to work out. I knew from the beginning that we were doomed, but I wanted to try anyways. Because I liked you, even may have loved you. I've for so...

I was the girlfriend that I thought every man would want. I was the girl who surprised my boyfriend with steaks for dinner. I was the girl who would drive half an hour to my boyfriend's apartment just to surprise him with something small to cheer him up on a bad day. I was the girl who charmed his parents and his family, and made friends with his older brother and sister. I was the girl who would pick him up from work when he didn't get off until late at night. I was the girl who would hand him the remote and be fine with letting him watch whatever boyish thing he wanted to. I was the girl that gave him self confidence; I reminded him every day how amazingly handsome I thought he was, and how intelligent and kind he had always seemed to be. I was the girl who would wake him up...

I wish I could tell every single person in this world that I don't miss you. But, that is just a very simply impossible task. I try to tell myself every time I see you or hear your name that you don't mean anything to me anymore. I try to move on, and be with someone who will actually appreciate me for what I do for them. But I always run right back to you. I see you almost everyday. School. My work. We have the same friends. You even came to my birthday party last weekend. The one important day to me of all the days in the year, and you had to show your face. You had to make me cry. You had to tell me you loved me. I knew it was just the alcohol talking, I knew you didn't mean anything you said to me. You didn't even remember anything that happened. And you constantly wonder why I...

Dear JS, Hello. We've been married for 9 years now and for the last 5 years, I have been cheating, in one form or another. And my last affair, he's left the country and I told myself, this was the last. Should I leave you or should I work it out? Knowing I am entirely different and conniving woman now. I am sorry. Am I? I have to the point where my feelings are numb. I keep blaming you to justify my actions. How you never want to have a baby with me and you never make efforts to make love with me. Since we don't speak the same language fluently, I can't communicate with you. Since I make more money than you, all you think is I'm amoney making machine. We got married the 3rd day we met. I was 23 and desperate to get out of my wretched country. You were a "loser" in your...

Dear Girl Who Ruined My Relationship, I know you're prettier than me and your voice is cuter than mine and I know you're the mother of his child and I know that you are basically everything I'm not. But what I do not know is what could make you stoop so low as to hurt me in this way. Even now I am finding it hard to clearly express my feelings toward something like this. He moved on, and so did you. So what made you decide you wanted to have him inside you again, when you knew he was happy with me? What have I honestly ever done to you, other than pick up the man I love when you no longer wanted him? I have waited for so long to be able to hold him and now things will never be the same. Don't take this as me implying he is without fault. He is just as guilty as you are....

To the boy who broke my heart, I wish I could say I don’t miss you. These last seven months have been torturous as I’ve opened and reopened the wounds of our disastrous breakup. Every time I thought I was over you, I checked your social media and remembered that you were doing just fine without me. I’d mistakenly stumble across our prom pictures from your senior year and smile as memories of us dancing for the first time crept into my mind, only to find myself holding my breath because I knew it was only a memory. Oh, how I desperately miss you. It’s been said that love is blind, and I never understood that saying until I met you. I only saw the good in you, the things that made me fall for you at a drastic rate, rather than the red flags and warning signs. I looked passed...

Dear ex, I needed to get a few things off of my chest. Just because you never physically hit me does not mean you were not abusive. You emotionally controlled me. You convinced me I was worthless. That I could never get anything better than you. You told me everyday how i was fat, ugly, useless, a slut, good for nothing, etc.. you told me to kill myself. You threatened my life, my baby sisters life, my best friends life. You called me a "rape magnet" because I had been raped before. you threatened to kidnap me and bring me to the middle east so you could beat me without getting in trouble. You convinced me I needed you to have any worth in my life. I lied to family and friends for you. I took pictures of everywhere i went because you didn't think I was trustworthy enough. Meanwhile you...
