Often times I have the urge to hold on to the wrong that others have done to … Continue reading The Payback Syndrome

Ada’s Dilemma 

They had spent the past five years of their lives planning ahead from the day they would officially say I do. They had agreed on everything: what deco was needed in the house, who will do what, who was welcome to stay with them and for how long, how many children they would have, how … Continue reading Ada’s Dilemma
