    I Am Stronger Now!!

    I was lost when my first and only boyfriend of 7 years, broke up with me. We were talking about getting married, and all of a sudden he broke up with me and told me that we were incompatible and that he still loved me but cannot  marry me. It  was a too severe blow and...

    I Am Just Starting Ti Believe

    Twice As Strong

    Best group I've seen in a while. And, true for me. We all get put through trials. No one comes out completely unscathed. Every experience we have affects our perspective on the very next experience we have. I read this somewhere recently and it keeps bugging me: Once you learn...
