Divorce Essentials!!

While I don't wish divorce upon my worst enemy, the national average tells us that it's going to happen to many of us.  It's unfortunately a fact of life when you are dealing with adult humans who have freedom of will and sometimes a case of impulse control or just a Shady AF partner.

Lessons from the rear view

If you've been around here for long you might remember one of my very early blog posts back in 2017 that was about Gaslighting. In that blog post, I mentioned that I'd never heard the term before until I started reading posts by @StillLearning2b on Twitter otherwise known as Lisa Arends. She's a fellow Texan,… Continue reading Lessons from the rear view

I was paroozing my codependent facebook groups, reading posts, commenting on some.  I don't often write posts on these sites, I'm more of… Continue reading I wish you Enough
