A betrayal that spans the entire relationship with this individual and has been the root of several years of confusion, anger, tears, and anguish. In coming to terms with this, I have discovered that key members of my social group were aware of the deceit and chose to remain silent. When I confronted this circle…Continue

Have you ever witnessed a parent verbally mistreating their child in public? For me, this is the most uncomfortable feeling ...Until recently I was always confused as to how to respond if at all. For the most part I would try to ignore it while in my mind pray for the…Continue

The month of February focuses our attention on love. Cards are bought, candy is given, kisses abound. What is it about love?
