Welcome to a new year, a new decade, a new chapter in my life. I'm a slightly happier, healthier, almost 27-year-old woman, working in a job she loves (that might actually blossom into a life-long career), spending time with friends and family that I admire and care about.Last year, when I was trying to picture… Continue reading “And now, the chapter is closed and done”
Well folks, it seems I can never learn lessons the easy way. I fell for the oldest trick in the book, post-painful break-up - the old "let's be friends" line. My ex and I had been chatty lately and he and I agreed to be friends, which felt okay. I have been in a really… Continue reading Was it all smoke and mirrors?
