Am I Special or Am I Just Entitled?

Hi, I am confused about myself and my career. I am always on point and wish to be treated with respect by my co-workers. I find that they often resent me.

I came from a really bad family (alcoholism, gambling addiction, etc.) and started working at 12 to...

Difficult to Trust Him

For example messaging other girls complimenting them on their appearance amongst other things. I’m just scared that if we do give our passwords to each other it would make our relationship toxic and he would betray me even more. I don’t know what the right thing to do is. Hearing from you would...

Hello. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule for me (hopefully). I would like to ask if what I experienced are possible signs of repressed memories because I asked two doctors, one is a general physician and he said what I experienced was vertigo and the other is a gynecologist and she said what happened was because I couldn’t handle my period pain (first day) I don’t agree personally with the...
