    You Yearn For It

    I have always wondered what love is?  How do you know when you love someone?  Is ti a need, is it an experience, committment?  Is it devotion, giving, sharing?  I'm at the point in one of my relationships where I feel as if I might need someone.  I am no...

    I Truly Believe This......

     ~ So why does everyone continue to tell me to strive for more than that. I suppose to want a "career" & be "successful". Get over my dreams of a family of my own because it would be "dangerous" for me to even attempt to get pregnant...
