My life has been turned upside down and inside out with all of the best features showing. My sense of time has been altered.

I’ve learned-
That it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it. That it’s not what you have in your life but who you have in your life that counts. Continue reading

What is love?

loveSo many people center their lives around this feeling- Love. We search for it, we crave it, we need it, and we can’t seem to get enough of it. It’s a drug in itself… the high that we get from it when we feel it is unlike anything else. It can literally be addictive, especially if you don’t feel a lot of love for yourself.
