Do I Have to Have Your Child to be Your Wife???

Remember that childhood nursery rhyme that went like this: “_________ and _________ sitting in the tree k-i-s-s-i-n-g. First comes love, then comes marriage then comes ___________ with a baby carriage.” Lately, I’ve noticed a trend among friends, peers, and acquaintances. It seems like the new thing is baby first and lifetime commitment later. Many people […]

Tonight’s Tirade: A Woman’s Unrealistic View

I’m so pumped up and on the largest soap box I can find at the moment. Why? It’s all because of these perfectly, gorgeous, beautiful women I know who don’t seem to know just how perfectly, gorgeous, and beautiful they are. Today I worked with a woman who is around my age. I think she’s […]

The Ally to My Insecurity

Do you have someone in your life that makes you feel like you aren’t good enough? I do. Every time I’m around this person I feel very insecure. I feel almost unworthy. Of what exactly, I’m not even sure. Love? Friendship? Respect? Admiration? All of the above? It’s not as if I’m going out of […]
