    Simply My Life 2

    Simply My Life 2

    I am stalling. I have known since I finished the first chapter what comes next in this story. I cannot tell any more of my life without this chapter. So much of who I am, who I became, was influenced by the events in this part of my life. And I do not want to write it.

But as I said, I can't tell any more of my story without it. I have tried to come up with a way to tell other things first, and I probably could fill up some pages with fluffy good memories. I could entertain you with my childhood. But those aren't the things that have shaped my story.

    How to Cope with Your Dysfunctional Family

    Scroll through your Facebook feed and within one minute I can guarantee that you’ll see a post about how great family is.

    A Perfect Summer

    A Perfect Summer
