I’ve been challenged by my mentor and good friend to put a name to the ugly, negative parts of myself. The woman who lies. The woman who manipulates people. The woman who likes to gossip. The woman who cheats. The woman who will steal your joy. The woman who avoids important decisions to sit in…

Konfessions: Trust Issues

I hate eating the insides of certain foods. Cookies, Sausages, Brownies, Chicken. Weird, right? I was eating a chicken strip the other day and I was eating the outsides and around it. In my head, my grandmothers’ voice said “stop being childish and eat the whole chicken strip!!”. I proceeded to eat the whole thing and I…
