    Married Too Soon

    So after ending a 15 year marriage, I ended up jumping into another relationship way too soon. Looking back on it now, I realize I didn't want to be alone. I refused to listen to anyone who told me I was rushing into things- this was the new me- completely independent... Or so i...

    I just watched this clip of Ellen Page speaking

    at a conference for LGBT. What an incredible speaker. She has such passion and courage. She just announced to the world that she is gay. Maybe her words will give you the courage to face your problems, and mine too. http://variety.com/2014/film/news/ellen-page-announces...
