Verbalizing hidden emotions can be painful. As I speak with a trusted friend about my recent betrayal, my heart begins to ache. It's easy to have a good day and feel confident and strong. But in moments of weakness and truth, I still get sad. As a teen I remember being told to guard my heart. Until now; I thought I understood what that meant. It's easy to give your heart away to a nice boy; even easier to think that this nice boy really means what he says and says what he means. But as a 29 year old woman; I should have gave it more time. Although we'd been friends for a while; we had only been dating for a month. I let my feelings take complete control. I've gone out with guys, dated guys, had guy friends, but never brought a guy that I was dating home to meet my family. He was my friend first; that is what hurts most. The age-old sayings hold some truth. There still are plenty of fish in the sea; and time usually does heal all wounds, but there are times I truly wish I could turn back time and delete the experience I had with this prick. I'm smarter than that. Se' la vi. Lesson learned. I am looking forward to a great week and weekend. My beautiful Tia Leida will be getting married in Las Vegas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can the cure for a break-up be Las Vegas? Maybe.
