“I do not know anything more painful than witnessing the man I loved love someone else. With Valentine’s Day coming up, it would’ve marked 5 years of being together.

“I thought I’d be rich by now, like multi-millionaire rich. Every day that goes by I feel a little bit more discouraged. When I was fourteen I thought I would be rich in my twenties, now it’s maybe I will be rich in my thirties. You know, it’s not even about being rich, but more […]
