Not Another One

The experience of going to the movie theaters will never be the same for me. Listening to a sermon at church will never be the same for me. Picking up toiletries at Walmart will never be the same for me. Attending a concert of my favorite musician will never be the same for me.

She Said What?!?!

People say the dumbest things. It's almost as if they speak before they think and if you're like me, you're often on the receiving end of thoughtless comments. I still believe that people have pure intentions; they don't mean to offend you, but they do, unfortunately. Why not keep a running list of things to NEVER say to someone. I'll list mine, and you can list yours in the comment section.

5 Ways You’re Accidentally Making People Hate You

I carry boxing gloves in the trunk of my car. It scares people, but I try to reassure them that they should not be scared. My boxing gloves protect them from me. I suffer from a case of passive-aggressiveness. Kickboxing is my form of therapy. Whenever I feel a bit tense, I grab my boxing… Continue reading 5 Ways You’re Accidentally Making People Hate You
