    Tackling tough things – November 2015 update

    For the past month I’ve been doing some serious self-examination.  Some things I’ve been considering: In the majority of my past romantic relationships for the past 20 years, seeing a recurring pattern in myself of adapting to try to be the person that I thought (for whatever reason) would be the “right” person for the other […]
