All you need is Love, and Love is all you need.
Healer, Heal Myself
Since the age of six, as long as I have kept a diary, I have signed it, “Love, Me.” Even as a kid, before countless magazine articles and email newsletters promoting self-worth bombarded my mailbox, I was drawn to the concept of loving yourself…or at least, trying to. Nevertheless, despite understanding this early on, I have spent most of my thirty-two years criticizing, critiquing, and reprehending myself. Judging myself. Wishing I was someone else. And yet, I’ve never given up on my incessant quest for self-acceptance. I read A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson so many times I can quote it. I kept gratitude journals, repeated affirmations, and listened to podcasts. I purchased an absurd amount of bergamot-scented candles. But for some reason, focusing all of this energy solely on myself never quite clicked for me. It wasn’t until I began shifting my awareness to helping others that my relationship with myself finally began to heal.

My best friend is not of this world. But he makes himself available to me at all times. He has heard all my stories, been with me through the good, bad, ugly, and has dried my tears. He has been my comfort when everyone else has left me.
Wifelovers are turned on by women who are already taken.
Women who are completely off limits. Women who should want nothing to do with them — but are so attracted to them that she forgets her vows and gives into temptation.
How Do You Know When You've Found the One?
1. When you are comfortable in any setting with them. I encourage all couples who are interested in furthering their relationships toward marriage to explore lots of different types of settings before tying the knot. Spend time with your significant other's extended family. Try going to the mall together. Professional sporting events. Birthday parties. Go overseas together if you can. The more places that you are able to spend time together the better because you will be able to see how your significant other responds to his or her surroundings. Ask yourself, do I admire the way my significant other takes in the world?

Her Name is Star
Dear H, Many of us look up to those who inspire us. Not me. I look down. I didn’t find my idol in a book or a newspaper, in a classroom or on the TV. I gave birth to you. You’re sitting five feet away as I type this, licking icing off your fingers from the cinnamon swirl you made yesterday, and wiping them on your blanket, eyes fixed on an inane series of YouTube shorts. Not inspiration material? Sometimes seeing all the cogs makes our heroes all the more inspiring, and you inspire me every day.

I’ve been wanting to get this off my chest for a while. These words and feelings that I’ve felt like I couldn’t say. How do you talk about something so painful and raw so casually? With no prompt and no idea where to speak about it? Then this challenge came up and it feels like whatever powers that be out there, are telling me to let it out.
My darling Sun,
Dear My Darling Sun, Before I met you I was nothing. I floated around the universe while I prayed for something to take me. It was frigid and unforgiving until I found you completely by chance.
Blood Stained Sheets
Chapter 1: The Dark Deed The pitter-patter of water from the shower filled the small, cramped room, mingling with the heavy breaths and soft moans of Jason and Julie. Steam rose around them, engulfing their entwined bodies in a cocoon of desire and secrecy. But the steam couldn't conceal the dark truth that lay just feet away on the tiled floor.
