    Setting a Good Example.

    I try to rule over my emotions by telling myself that anytime I feel a certain way and would not be able or willing to explain the reason for it to my kids, I am not allowed to feel that way.  It doesn't make the emotion stop, but it stops the way I'm dealing with it dead in...

    I've always been the girl

    who doesn't need a relationship to be happy. For some reason that is changing, and I have a desire to be with someone. I need to be strong to not fall for the first guy to tell me he 'loves' me. Not going to make that mistake again
