    I will honour myself this year.

    Every since my first love broke my heart, I find myself settling in relationships I truly don't want. At first impression, I knew the males I've had in my life were not what I wanted. But as I got to know them, I felt...who am I to judge? What about their story? Well, what about...

    I Waited Too Long

    There is no way I would settle for the first girl that smiled at me after two and a half years, although she would have been happy about that, lol!

    I'd Rather Be Alone

    I don't know about you but when I say to myself "I will not settle again.", my first afterthought is, "What is so great about me that I feel entitled to 'hold out' for someone I perceive as perfect for me?" Now, that is probably my low self-esteem talking, but regardless of...
