(Everything circles back to romance and relationships in my mind. Hazard of the job!)

Why Threats Will Always Ruin a Relationship

Today I want to talk about over-reactors. And I also want to talk about how, if you're with somebody that makes you overreact, then you need to re-evaluate the entire relationship that you think in your mind you may have. My mother was an over-reactor. She would fly off the handle at any given moment. You never knew when she was going to be calm, and serene, and loving. Read more
