    Jasmin the Most Beautiful Flower...

    When I first saw her and I realized what was really happening, the fear and terror in my throat and stomach froze me with its icy clutches. The fear  strengthened, intensifying into a swirling mass of terror, doubt, and hope, but I kept it under control. I took a deep breath...

    I Often Find Myself Guilty of It...

    Jealousy is a powerful emotion. It is considered one of the seven deadly sins. Although I feel envy goes hand in hand with pride. At least it does with me. I'm most often envious when my pride is hurt. I'm envious of what my friends have. They don't have to fight through the...

    Loss of a friendship

    Two years ago I reconnected with an old friend that I hadn't seen in 10 years and it was amazing how much we had in common. We were both engaged, renting, had a toddler and both pregnant with our second child. We weren't working and found ourselves spending 3-4 days a week...

    My Bestfriend

    Classic Situation

    I'd never understood it when people talked of sibling jealousy. I didn't feel that way at all when my little brother was born. I loved him straight away; I wanted to see what type of person he would become. I was always aware of the way people treated me and my elder brother...

    Done

    I stopped talking to my best friend. Maybe the reason is petty but sometimes you can feel like a relationship has run it's course. I was done with him, the way he treated me and the way he acted. It's weird how we became friends especially since we both liked the same guy. The...
