I remember what it was like after my divorces. Getting back out into the dating scene was daunting and in some instances, downright weird. The dating-scape and rules of engagement of the past have changed DRASTICALLY. Here’s a list of comments and questions that I have encountered on my dating quest. Some are funny and others are just downright bizarre.
Trees are known for deep roots and a fortitude that can withstand tests of time and strength. Like a tree, a person can be deep rooted in their identity, self-worth, and contribution to the community surrounding them. Trees can support whole ecosystems, but when they lose their ability to support, the effects on that ecosystem can be negative. We too, like a tree, can lose our ability to practice self-love and support those around us. Take a moment to reflect and ask yourself if you are a tree that's self-worth is deep rooted and can withstand any test presented to you.
We can all relate to feeling isolated whether by choice or circumstance. I'm sure that you've heard someone say or you have said yourself "I'm lonely", "I want to be alone".

Imagine that you are out to eat or at a salon and the services rendered fall short your expectations. You are left with some options on handling the situation.

Or you could speak up and tell them how you feel. Which option would you choose?
I created this website to tell stories that anyone can find relatable. The hopes is that through my experiences, people reading my stories can better themselves, question status quo and sometime just have a laugh to brighten their day. There will be times however, that I discuss topics that are relatable even when people don’t want to believe that they are. Something that we can all relate to is the concept of racism. Although racism is seen around the world, because of deaths of people in police custody, increased gang activity across the country and issues on race and immigration highlighted in the upcoming presidential election, I want to focus on what’s going on in the United States.
From the minute we wake up to the moment you go to bed, every living being on this planet is in a state of constant communication. Sighs, shrugs, telling joke, crying, laughing
The loss of a relationship can be a pivotal moment in a person's life. We are often left with questions and emotions that can cloud our perspective on what was, what is and what will be. There is hope! There are some step that you can take to help in your process of healing, with the hopes of learning how to cope and move foward with a happy life (love and otherwise)
Are you stuck? You know, stuck in the sense of being somewhere, doing something, with someone you shouldn't be? Maybe you don't even know that you're stuck. Sometimes our actions pinpoint the need to find a new "space" for us to be in and all we need is a glimmer or in other cases a jolt to do so.
