I remember the first time I saw my now ex-boyfriend; it was almost like a motion picture. I started to sweat and my heart immediately started to beat at its own pace. At that moment, I knew I had to find out who he was. Many months later we became the best of friends. For a relationship to be stable and healthy the couple must have an abundance of respect for each other that usually starts out as a friendship. During the courting process of our relationship, I was really trying to find out who he was on the inside. He has a way of blocking everyone out when life gets too much for him. This can be seen as a gift and a curse, but more so a curse because it caused the demise of our relationship.

...ave I experienced this first hand but now I am a product of it. Watching my strong mother pick herself up and take care of me as a single parent gives me the strength that I need to pull through. Even though this pain of a failed relationship gives me pause, I know my value and what I bring to the table. I do not fault him for not being able to see that in me. From this day forward, I will no longer live with anger anymore because it does not have a hold on me and neither does he. I am stronger than my weakest moment and I am better than my worst situation. Respectfully, I thank him for the beautiful times we have shared and I no longer hold any anger against him. Just like my dad made the right decision for himself, so did my ex. Now it is time to make the right decision for myself and close the chapter on this relationship, since he was not man enough to so.

- In Emily Dickinson's lifetime, she was an unknown talent (except to a select few she had chosen to share her expressions of life with) that had only seven poems published while she was alive, and the poems that were published were probably all done so without her immediate knowledge or consent (Bloom 12). Her poems show two different sides of her: some an `irreverent little girl' and others `a grief-stricken, mature woman' (---. 8). When examining poems by Emily Dickinson, you see how the pain in her life and the heartbreak she felt and witnessed contributed to many of the over two thousand poems she wrote during her 56 years of life....

- ... Many of my friends were telling me that he liked me, it was very obvious that I liked him, and a lot more; they talked about it like it was the most normal thing in the world. “People make out, date, and start relationships all the time,” they said; you know what else they do. They also get on airplanes all the time. When I thought about the probable costs of falling in love, ranging from arguments to heartbreak, I felt inside that I wanted to scream, "Get me out of here!" Love is kind of like flying, I felt like my feet were not touching the ground; it was like I was airborne, shaky, and I just want to have my feet back on the ground.... [tags: personal narrative]
