Returning to 7th Grade as a 39 year old Mom

Things I have learned while being in 7th grade as a 39 year old mom of 3 teenagers. It is an understatement to say that things have changed in the last 25 years since I attended 7th grade full time.

If a Man Wants You

If a Man Wants You

If a relationship ends because the man was not treating you as you deserve then hell no, you can't "just be friends". A friend wouldn't mistreat a friend.or a better job. Do not make him into a god. He is a man, nothing more nothing less. Never let a man define who you are. Never borrow someone else's man. If he cheated WITH you, he'll cheat ON you.individuals...look for someone complimentary…not supplementary.
