So I lay awake in bed constantly every night because I don’t have peace of mind and my heart is unsettled. I think back to the young spirit I once knew. A strong confident woman who had so much potential to be someone.
She knew it and so did everyone surrounding her. She was soooo happy, and one day she met the perfect man... so she thought.
He was nice and so sweet. He made her laugh, and listened to her and what she had going on. In return, she listened to him and she just knew they could grow together.
So, of course, one day he became the one... they got married and started a great life together... so she thought.

The “one” came into her life and swept her off her feet for the better... so she thought.
To grow as a team, as one, but instead she gave her all to be left standing alone. She writes to you with an empty heart and looks now to get that girl back... there is a story to tell and this is only the beginning. When you lose yourself, the first thing you do is acknowledge the fact that you have lost yourself and realize it’s okay, we all lose our way—but how many can say they are strong enough to find the strength to get back what you deserve?
