Quite some time passed before I let my vulnerable little heart out…only for it to be shattered…by a pathological liar…again. But before I get to that, I must tell you that I fell in love Jay’s cousin, […]
Like I said in the previous post, Walter Mitty had nothing on Jerome…this man had an imagination more vivid than I can possibly describe (and believe me, I have an arsenal of adjectives in […]
If I look back at the things I endured for “love”, I am ashamed. I’ve sifted through enough stones to have found my diamond
Lolla, the fact that I can write, openly and honestly, without the fear of reproach or pity, has made the process of dealing with the guilt so much easier. God is making my heart whole again, and I am so blessed. […]
As the months passed, the hurt from being tossed aside like yesterday’s mouldy sandwich by Peter, subsided a bit. I’d shed almost 11 Kg in 3 months, and believe me, I ate like a horse. Stress has a funny way of […]
It’s been some time since I’ve written about, or even given thought to Peter Del Mare and the rest of my tragic love journey, but yesterday I felt so depressed that I wanted to get into my car and run off, but […]
Lolla – I have walked around with this ghost for fifteen years and it has influenced all my romantic relationships negatively. I have met someone who I honestly believe in my heart is “The One”, and I am trying […]
Peter finally gave me my marching orders on the 2nd of January 2000, the year I was to turn twenty one and be able to get married without parental consent. I should have had some kind of intuition about what was […]
Thank you – I will do that. Getting the story out is liberating my soul, which has so long been bogged down by guilt. It’s time I start living.
I know that there are probably a number of you reading this wondering why a well-educated young lady would want to be with a man 16 years her senior (forget about the abuse in that relationship for just a moment). […]
Thank you Barend – I don’t know so much about “brave”, but I do know that finally getting it out of my head is a welcome relief.
CitizenC – Indeed, and I know for a fact that to date, he still hasn’t changed. But I have, and I WILL no longer be a prisoner of the guilt.
When I made the decision to finally put my tragic love journey down in writing, I didn’t really consider if it was going to be a chronological account of events, or if I would go into nitty-gritty detail, […]
Jeanius – The tragic thing is that I’ve realized that fact almost 15 years too late Hopefully my story will enable others to be on the lookout for wolves in sheep’s clothing…
The truth is indeed stranger than fiction… I am currently busy drafting another post.
I can say with certainty that you will probably repeat the same mistakes – not because you’re doomed to, but because you’re simply human. I have been wanting to share this story in its fullness for quite some […]
I’ve been working around with the burden for much too long, so if my story helps you CitizenC, then I will be very happy. Don’t wait 15 years like I have – it’s not fair to the ones that come around, wanting to love you, and I mean, really LOVE you. Good luck!
What a beautiful promise.
I’ve heard confession is good for the soul, so I’ve decided to blog about my disastrous love journey in the hope that I will find some kind of peace…I’m telling my story as it is, and sometimes the language […]
