It's True: I Am a Horrible Friend

I am a horrible friend. No, really, I am a horrible friend. It's not that I am antisocial. It's not that I really don't like people. I use my husband as the excuse. Oh, I can't go to lunch with you because, well, Chris gets frustrated when I am gone. He does, but that is not the real reason....more

The Single Girl Rant: 5 Guys We've All Dated At Least Once

Sometimes, being single gets old.When you hit your late twenties, if you’re not in a relationship, people seem to think something is actually wrong with you. Like the fact that you haven’t settled down yet indicates you’re damaged, or completely insane.I haven’t been in a serious relationship for over two years. In those two years, I have had the pleasure (and horror) of dating all kinds of kinds. There’s been good and the bad. The healing and the hurtful.

Who Are The Friends Of Your Soul?

I used to think that friends were the people who unconditionally comforted you when you felt wronged, showed up for you when you felt needy and insecure, joined you in righteous indignation when you felt angry, and validated you when life isn’t going your way. I thought friends would be unconditional cheerleaders, and you would always feel better after being with a friend. But lately, I’ve realized that my most valuable friends are the ones who stand for my soul, even when that means saying something my ego doesn’t want to hear....more

Ten Signs the One You Love is a Narcissist

My introduction to the concept of narcissism came by way of my mom reading me D’Aulairs’ Book of Greek Myths. The myth tells of a youth so infatuated with his own image that he drowns in a pool trying to kiss the beautiful face he sees reflected there.
