It's all wrong but it's alright

Love is real and it can happen to all of us. However, if we are not discerning enough, an appearance can deceive us. A tone of voice can lead us astray. A sex act can confuse us. The heart of the human being can be insincere, and they can be so charming – even in their…

Letting Go

She knows

Yours may be also busily cheating on you. Are you going to be in denial or face the reality of it? Because to ignore gives him the go-ahead to pursue it further. To pretend as if you do not care or see his deeds equally concurs to him getting away with it. When is ever the…

She found herself in a position I doubt would have known what to do – if I were to be in her shoes. Do we take our relationships for granted sometimes, even if we kind of, don’t intend to? Because, she had a happy relationship and marriage, and a man, the ‘right’…

He lived his life in a continual struggle. I think he still does, except, maybe now, he is choosing to see and appreciate the splendor that could come out of this art of struggling. He chose to become more than just what life threw at him. He did more. He found available…
