Girl, deal with it, and move on! Don't let it fester, like you said! Get it all out in the open, and then take a step forward for yourself! That's what I've done, and lawd, let me tell you, do I ever feel better! Sometimes, we DO have to do what's best for "us" meaning oneself. Until you get a handle on your own life, you're not going to do anyone good, being a part of theirs. Here I am preaching, just wanted to say how Powerful this was! So glad to see your little name here and there! Love you!
