It’s Over..But It’s Not

You think it will be over...but it's not. "You can’t buy a book bag but you can buy a $52 steak?" Unfortunately, this is a typical question that occurs to me after I hang up from another wasted phone call. Getting out isn’t something that you just do.

Now most people when they hear whatever it takes they relate it to changing people places and things around ...

I used to struggle and question my parenting style; for example do I parent like I was raised or do I parent like society says I should parent. Then not so long ago I had an ephiany.

Ever since I was little girl, that was my goal to make others feel important. But we all have had a plot twist moment.

Co-Dependency: Sitting in the Suck and Gratitude

Co-Dependency: Sitting in the Suck and Gratitude What a difference a year can make. One year ago today, I was living with my husband of 10 years and our two children in a nice house. We had great neighbors, good careers and while our marriage was struggling, I thought we’d see it through.
