For the first time in forever

For the first time in forever, I noticed myself feeling . . . happy. Content, even. Today I found myself not dreading the future. I wasn’t thinking about how I’ll probably never get the things I want, or my approximation of a happy ending. I felt . . . joy. For the first time in…

Family Issues.

Let’s talk family issues. Please be aware, I do not intend this to sound like ‘poor me, life is so unfair’. I intend this post to show some of the goings on in a bad family, and what results from what amounts to adult sibling rivalry.   My sister (who we’ll call K) says I…
