    Love Me

    I'm realising the importance of loving myself as well as giving myself at least a fraction of what I am willing to give to others. There's no way I will let what I have to offer be tampered by a leech who doesn't understand what it means to give. It is not in my interests to...

    I’M In A Toxic Relationship Now And I Want To Get Out.

    A relationship in which

    when i told him i wanted to leave him, he pulled out a knife and started to kill himself on my porch. Was forced to stay with him (even after rape) I wish i was strong enough to leave back then. If i had, maybe i wouldnt shut everyone in my life out.

    Right On!!!!!

    I didn't stay in the toxic relationship- I got the hell OUT of it! I'm thankful that he showed his true colors before meeting him face to face and that I had the perspicacity to get out when I did. The next lady ended up murdered - need I tell you that I'm VERY cautious? At the...

    The day is fast approaching.

    My sons last exam! The goal I had set myself to leave this toxic marriage. In an ideal world, when I raise the taboo subject again, he will be ready to make changes too. We all know, it isn't an ideal world. The stress of it all has taken its toll on my health, physically and...
