The Un-edited Truth of Di


November 2016


Ever had one of those times when you would damn near sell your soul for a reassuring hug and words from a significant other? Yeah that’s me right now. It’s not that I’m not strong or can’t get through. It’s just that I’m tired of being strong all the time. I wish that there was someone in my life who knew me well enough to understand. And it’s all amplified by the fact that it’s cuffing season and my house is cold AND I actually had someone last year. But I can’t dwell on that. I just have to make it through today without crying. I’ll be ok.

Grace Chung1. True love is not meant to be rushed. 2. Just because your best friend has found love, doesn’t mean you are less of an awesome person. 3. Love comes in all shapes and sizes. Just because you haven’t found a significant other, doesn’t mean you don’t have love in your life. You have…

Meant to be 

The more I think about it,the more I realize that real love isn’t passive. If I truly love someone and want to be with them I need to let it be known instead of leaving it up to fate.

7 Surprising Perks Of Moving To A City Where You Don’t Know A Soul — Thought Catalog

Grace ChungGrowing up in Small Town, USA, I was accustomed to a town where people often said, “They call this place ‘a retirement town’ because this is where people come to die.” Everyone knows everybody, and everyone knows all about your business.

I love this article and it has a lot of truth to it. I moved across the country about a month ago for the second time in my life and it’s been a good experience. I’ve gotten the chance to meet new people and go exploring.

The truth in a picture 

Sadness and resolve 

There’s always those times where you just want to burst into gut-wrenching tears but you’re in a public place so you hold it together. This week has been difficult because I’m pretty sure I just got dropped by someone I genuinely liked. Again. While two months isn’t a long time, I get attached somewhat easily when I’ve known the person for years. We had reconnected and things were going well. Nothing heavy or defined. Just cool. So in all honesty he doesn’t owe me anything. He didn’t make promises or tell me anything future oriented. I just wish I knew why. I guess I’ll never know but it sure sucks to be dropped out of seemingly thin air. Like that breakup earlier this year when he dumped me right after swearing everything was fine between us. Maybe that’s why I have major trust issues and vulnerability is hella hard. This year has been filled with major heartbreaks and then smaller ones in between. And I’m the common denominator. It’s obvious that I’m doing something wrong. But I’m just tired of crying and never having anyone in my corner.. but it looks like that’s my lot now. Just wish it wasn’t so hard to get through. First week is always hell but as usual I’ll move on with my life. 

Election Time

Well, it’s the day after election and I’m getting messages from friends overseas asking if I’m ok. Like a lot of people, I have to admit that I was dumbfounded by the election. I thought that maybe we were better than this. The entire political race was a joke and while I wasn’t a fan of either candidate there was one who particularly stood out in their stupidity. But we can’t have it all can we?
