healthy relationships

When someone instantly makes your heart beat faster, you might feel as if you’re experiencing “love at first sight.”  However… what you’re really experiencing is “infatuation at first sight.” After all,  in those first throes of love, you’re simply falling for a person’a superficial self – not who they are in their inner core – their soul – their character.

        9 Reminders To Help You Avoid Toxic Partners

        toxic partnersAbout a decade ago, I was enjoying a yummy brunch with my good friend Lisa, when she suddenly blurted something I’ll forever remember.

        “Your ex always reminded me of the U.N.,” Lisa announced.

        “The U.N.?” I repeated – not sure where Lisa was going – although she and I usually finished each other’s sentences (as well as each other’s leftover omelets and fries).
