    I Feel So Stuck.

    This is a first for me - I've never posted anything, anywhere. I grew up in a dysfunctional environment that instilled the belief, amongst many others, that 'you can't trust anyone' and although my logical brain tells me this is not healthy or true my experiences have...

    *some Things Never Change*

    When you're young and people make promises you always count on them to keep them.  What we don't know when we're young is that most people make promises just to keep us interested and calm.  My dad always made promises to me that he, of course, couldn't keep because he...
