Its Over

Life wasn't easy when my fiance whom we had dated for almost fiveyears decided to call it guits i was greatly pained heart broken and distressed and i remember i even started drinking alcohol.Imean my life was useless until in was taken to a counsellor who counselled thoroughly and greatly helped me to forget the issue. One thing he told me was that i was not the first or the last to be ditched and there was still hope no matterr happened. He further told me that drinking only worsened by destroying my health. I started realising how significant i still was and since i chose to be strong and to press on no matter what had happened
