It's been 14 years since she was murdered...
by Christian Pinto
I was 14 when she died and my heart still aches when I remember her. I'm 28 now and I've gone through a breakup that I realized, through counseling, has become exacerbated by the similarities to my relationship with my mother.
I felt I needed to write this so that someone might know my heart without me having to confide in someone. My ex cannot know how badly she hurt me because she doesn't understand my loss. She has never lost anyone. It's not her fault that she doesnt understand and I can't hold her responsible for the correlation I see. But, nevertheless, this has opened up wounds which are still so deep and painful. I want the 2 issues to be separate but I cannot disentangle them. It just hurts so bad and I'm emotionally distraught on multiple fronts as a result.
