Shana and Michael: It all
started last July. I was baby sitting my younger cousin Kristian while my
aunt was out of town for the weekend. As it was getting late I put Kristian
to bed and I began to watch TV...
She's From: ? He's From: ?
Well I have to say that my story is as
true as they come. I am young but my heart is experienced.
My first real relationship was a complicated
one. He was a "bad boy" and I was a "good girl." When we first got
together, everyone wondered how we came to be and said that they were
surprised we were together.
after a couple of months we were surely in love any everyone else saw it
too. It was good for a while but to make a complicated story simple
things turned bad, I mean horrible. We didn't talk, and people would
tell me about his being with other girls but I never saw it and was too
busy to deal with it accordingly.To sum it up, when it was all over I
felt so hurt. I know you've heard that before, but I mean I felt that no
one could understand my hurt or my situation.
So needless to say after
that relationship when I met someone months later I was all TOO sceptical. He was literally one of the nicest males I had ever met. He
was what I always asked of people but never got. He seemed all too
perfect. He was honest, sincere, we had too much in common, and he was a
I have never been the type of girl to cry
aimlessly over some boy, man whatever. I have been strong and have a
strong desire to focus on what's important- which to me is school. When
I started falling for him I guess my heart was hardened so I didn't want
to be too quick to respond. Like last time- when I had been so naive. So
we talked for months, things were so nice. He said the sweetest things
and I guess I waited to hear about his many girls but never did. There
was no stress, no drama. But in my attempt to be so unconcerned with
being with him I hurt myself. We still talked but when i was ready to
change the seriousness of our relationship, he told me we should be
friends. He told me that he was with someone. I waited for the day where
I could just tell him how much he meant to me but I never could. Every
time I would see him with a girl it tore me up inside and everyday I
said that I would tell him because it wasn't as bad as it seemed and I'd
heard too many times how if you don't tell someone how you feel about
them that you will regret it. Well we are still apart to this day and
honestly i did regret it, not so much because I didn't tell him but
because I let one lowdown person permit me from my happiness.
This isn't meant to be a sad story
although the truth is it did hurt. I've gained the key back to my heart
and someone really special will come take it one day. No matter how much
you love someone, never give anyone the power to consume you. There is
always tomorrow and your heart is yours to be with someone deserving of
you. This is really for my sisters, open up your eyes, there is always
hope. As Boyz to Men say, "Girl, don't let real love pass you by."
