Why Won’t Men Respect Me?

Have you ever wondered why you can’t seem to get a man to treat you with the respect you feel you deserve? Have you watched other women who are married to men who adore them and you wish you knew their secret?

Are You An Emotional Masochist?

I am going to help you reclaim your happiness, if you want it. This is not going to be easy to read.

I Left An Abusive Relationship 5 Years Ago

I left 5 years ago without a second thought. It was the hardest thing I ever had to do. While the last five years have been hell in court and I sometimes feel like I’ve failed my daughter somehow I then look back and think ok I’m not near in the situation I was before. I can handle this if I made it through that! I left with nothing but the support of my family with $200.00 in my bank account but I made it. I...

Why Do Mothers Hurt Their Daughters?

“Sometimes I feel like I don’t like my daughter. She is one of those kids who will tell a lie for no reason and will have you believing her lies. When I had her there was no bond at all. When she would try to touch me it would gross me out. I don’t hate her, I just feel that I don’t like her,” revealed 35 year old Mary Ann.** Mary Ann is one of many Moms who hold feelings of resentment toward their daughters;  a broken...
