Priority Vs Option: Too Important to be the Latter

Don't make someone a priority, while you are only an option to them We have heard this statement a tad too many times and we have probably used it a number of times as well. We have probably felt it as well at some point in our lives. Felt like someone was not giving us…

Enough to walk away

He looked into my eyes, I looked away. I couldn't stand seeing the pain in them, I knew he loved me. I knew he was awesome. He just wasn't my person And as bad as it hurt, I had to choose me, Do what felt right for me And he didn't He was wrong for…
