THE GIRLFRIENDS GUIDE TO GIRLFRIENDS

Anyone who knows me knows I am a true introvert to the core. I long for meaningful and deep friendships, but I also tend to withdraw when my cup is almost empty. This constant cycle has caused me in the past to have trouble finding inner peace. It’s never personal but I am absolutely no good to anyone when […]
