    Fighting Tooth And Nail

    I dreamt last night that my partner of almost two years cheated on me with a couple of women (at the same time, I might add), with all the graphic detail you can doubtless imagine. And then I seriously beat him up - he had bruises all over his face. Then in real reality, he woke...

    Being insecure is like drawing a picture. All you ever see are the mistakes but others may not even notice them. Don't let one tiny mistake ruin your whole picture.
