I wish all people, men and women alike, would get more in tune with their emotions. Get … Continue reading “Be Emotionally Available Before You Invite Me Over”
You know exactly who I'm talking about. The "friends" who you can only discuss a handful of topics with or otherwise your business will end up on the evening news. The "friend" that wants you to be everything, everyone and everywhere for them, yet they barely even manage to send you a "how you doing" … Continue reading Fake Friends: How many of us have them?
