Or, will I like them?
Of course we want people to like us. We are designed for community. But everyone is not going to like us. And everyone is not going to be good for us.
I’m thankful for my friends, for their love and support, for being able to share tears and laughter. But I know I can be okay alone, because we are never really alone.

Then there are cats. Cats have their own special kind of confidence. Some of them are experts.

Alright guys! Know that feel of getting super excited about walking in a zoo where you encounter a myriad of wild and uncivilised creatures? Well that’s exactly how it feels when you enter the vast dating world, the sole difference being that in the latter case, the excitement lasts just for one hundredth of a nanosecond. Yeah! Joking aside, I’ve very recently come out of a toxic, long distance relationship with an edgy, mentally deranged, over-possessive boyfriend. It was a highly unpleasant experience. By sharing the traumatic ordeal with you on this platform, I want you to grow, to learn and most importantly to discern. I try to build others up because I know what it’s like to be torn down.
Now, let’s get back to the main issue-What is over-possessiveness…

This knocks my guilt out of the ball park because I’m “…creating more space for each authentic, heartfelt, luminescent, unconditional, absolute YES!”
