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.

I did the one thing I said I would never do. I allowed myself to be tempted by “what could have been” instead of focusing on what God blessed me with. That’s right, I cheated on Prince Charming. Did I mean to? Absolutely not. I curved every guy that hit my inbox and sh...

Inspired by "I’m not going to write you a love song" Sara Bareilles

I was the perfect (almost perfect) girlfriend

The other day I was scrolling down my timeline on Twitter or Facebook. I don't remember exactly which social network it was, but I noticed a lot of negative talk describing the opposite sex. Usually I would just keep scrolling and mind my business. However, this time i...
