Getting over a break up is hard. And unfortunately, common. If you’re actively participating in the dating game, chances are good that you’re going to experience a break up sooner or later. Of course, not all break ups are created equal. While some break ups might be cured by a night out with friends and a new date, others are much more significant and painful.
My earliest memories of summer include fond recollections of making forts with my friends, swimming every day in our pool and chasing the ice cream truck down the street. We were little maniacs when it came to ice cream. Our biggest challenge was just trying to stay up late. Those care-free days are long gone but they may hold some wisdom for how to beat the summer blues today. If you’d like to recapture a taste of the summer joy you had as a kid, try some of these ideas: 1. Mental Makeover: Summer can be a contrast between the “haves and the have nots.” When you hear about what others get to do, you may not feel so great about your own summer plans or lack thereof. When you notice once again that life is not fair, allow yourself a momentary silent sigh. Choose to be excited for your friends and then focus on how you will creatively make the most of what you have. Take a tip from the kids on your block who can turn any local mud patch into a mud pie-making factory.
Next time you hear or read someone say that one needs to change one’s thoughts, remember that you are not your thoughts – they come and go, thousands of times during each day. Your thoughts influence you, yes. So do your emotions, your beliefs, your memories, your body sensations, etc..
Every day, people all over the world discover they have a need to be “special”. This “need” is actually a misplaced one, as the real need that drives the desire to be special is a very normal and fundamental human need to be accepted. However, thanks in part to advertising, people today believe that they need to be special as a way of ensuring that they are accepted. Being accepted is a normal human desire. If one was accepted in ancient times, it meant that you got to live in the community and not be banished by your tribe. Banishment often put you in a survival or more likely lethal scenario of trying to survive in the wild alone. Ignore the heroic sole survivor notions of Hollywood – living alone in ancient times was usually a death sentence – you’d either starve or become some predator’s lunch.
Feeling strong and week on and off like this for a few days now, it's been emotionally draining with up's and down's, at times I think it would be easier for us to get back together so all the pain would just go away, but that would be pointless and neither of us would get anything more out of it that we allready have. Both of us had moments of weakness and denile, we both made the phone calls to eachother and did the texing basing our emotions on WHAT IF and MISSING EACHOTHER. Bouncing in and out of the reality of why we broke up has been going on for the past few days. Sometimes thinking it can work, and then knowing it absolutly will not work. Going over this in my head back and forth for days has been driving me crazy. I've been told this is normal.

This is the story of Mike since 2006, posted chronologically starting with the most recent posts. This was taken from my now deleted myspace blog and posted here as a running history of where I have been and what has gotten me to this point in my life. It reads like a teenage angst diary in some parts and reveals some of my most personal feelings and thoughts at situations I have been through. This is a running auto-biography, and I hope it continues for a long time. WARNING: Strong language, angst, self-importance, emo lyrics and empty hopes and dreams. Also, LOOOOOONGGGG.
