Those who dive into the sea of affliction bring up rare pearls - Charles Spurgeon

September 1

Dominic was the love of my life until I killed him twice.

And both times, I can't say that I was sad about it. But I'm not going to get into that with you just yet.

If you want to know the whole truth, you'll have to be patient with me. Whenever I think about what happened, it's like that slap from Dominic all over again and I'm left wondering how I got into it all in the first place.

I've never told anyone but God the entire story about what happened but I'm thinking...maybe it's time to do it now?

This secret has been eating away at me and no matter what I do, it keeps bubbling up to my surface, trying to escape. I need to get this weight off of my chest and the only way I can do it is by writing it down.

If I was really smart, I wouldn't write it down at all, especially online like what I'm doing right now. But I've decided to throw caution to the wind. Maybe my story will turn out to be a bunch of incoherent ramblings - I don't know.

Just know this - I'm not a bad person. I needed to do what needed to be done to free myself from Dominic. And maybe, just maybe, what I have to say will free someone else too.

You know what they say - two can keep a secret if one of them is dead.

Fortunately, I'm the one still breathing.
