Growing up, my mom and I didn't have a close relationship. Whenever I asked her for advice about relationships, her response was always, "You're too young for a boyfriend. Focus on school." Of course, I went behind her back and talked to the boys at school anyway. I wa...

I never knew who love was until she sliced me in the back.
Death by 1000 cuts, premeditated murder.

 

She knows me. 
She knows me far to well.
She knows my humor, my mind, my secrets.

She knows the right words to say to me, 
She knows when I’m comfortable.
She knows wh...

You’re never alone if you truly love yourself...

Have you ever sat back and thought? “Wow, I really love who I am! I really love me!” If you haven’t, why? What is it about yourself that you don’t like enough that you can’t enjoy being just with you.

Congratulations! You’ve finally left him. Let us all slow clap as you ignore his messages and block him on social media.

Mixed feelings take over your body. You feel heartbroken. You feel angry. You feel disappointed. You feel proud of yourself and excited to start your...

It’s the day before Halloween. Life is good. You’ve just concluded a heated make-up session with bae after arguing over the last juice box in the fridge. That thirsty boyfriend of yours thought you weren’t going to notice the straw wrapper on the table, but you did. Si...

I went through a break up with my kids father after 12 years. He was manipulative, controlling and abusive. Through all the threats, stalking, prank calls, a few busted apartment windows and a 2 year order of protection, I knew it was time to put my big girl boots on a...

When I logged onto social media that day, I was SHOOK! I was a little hurt but a lotta salty! Getting rejected by someone I liked was a hard enough pill to swallow, but to see that he was in a WHOLE relationship with someone else just left me STI...

Like anyone else, I believed our love story was the best. From the jump you did everything right; you were sweet, made me laugh like crazy, and you were a mama’s boy (for some reason I find that to be so cute!). We had intellectual conversations...
