If you've made a decision such as to purchase unnecessary stuff and find yourself suffering financially, it's probably time to take action and Read more [...]

Sometimes Your Ex May be a Little ‘Off the Rails’

It’s also difficult to work out what they are trying to achieve by doing so. If it’s a stab at reconciliation, they are going a bizarre way around getting the message across of their undying love.

And so the labels of “loser” and “failure” creep in, become the nouns we define ourselves by. Inevitably, once those words become nouns, they begin poisoning Read more [...]
