    Written On My Forehead

    Sometimes I think "SUCKER" must be written on my forehead.  It's hard for me to 'say no'. I either empathize, sympathize or maybe I feel uncomfortable 'disipleasing people'.... and maybe I'm just gullable!   I do think I need to learn to say 'no' more...

    But I Kinda Love It...

    My best friend has a very strong hold over me. She can get me to do almost anything she likes. All of our other friends in our group seem to find it quite intriguing and immusing. I have been called her slave, her servant, her puppy dog. But i actually really love...
