RELATIONSHIPS. Murky waters, these things we navigate on our quest for love or fulfillment. But I’m of the mind that the most successful relationships are between two whole people, people who know and love themselves because that’s how you can best give to and receive love from other people. Only when you are truly who […]
LIMITS. Know your own. Know others’. And don’t ever let someone try to make you go beyond yours if it’ll hurt you. Oh, and learn from my mistakes, y’all. I didn’t set limits for something, and I pay for it every day. Yeesh.
