On the Brink of Insanity: The Case of Janet Bond

When it comes to life, people, jobs, and anything else that can play on my emotions, I have one simple rule – “the moment you start to act in an unbecoming manner, or you find yourself evolving into someone/something else, it’s time to cut your losses and move on.” This rule has always worked for me; perhaps it is one of the reasons why people … Continue reading On the Brink of Insanity: The Case of Janet Bond

It is very important for single women to be able to discern the kinds of men around them in order to know where to draw the line.
