Invest in the one that matters – YOU

Why is it that so many of us choose to stay with our partner out of a sense of duty or obligation even when it’s riddled with toxicity, dysfunction or lack of an emotional connection? I’m guilty of this, there have been many times that I didn’t want anyone to know that my happily ever…

It WILL all make sense one day

After a heartbreak many of us are told, “It will be okay.” as we nod silently, but what we really want to do is yell, “WHEN? this fucking hurts. When will this be okay?” The answer varies for each person but in my case, it took nineteen years, five months, four days and twenty five…
