I have decided to reintroduce posts about Domestic Abuse/Violence, narcissism, sociopaths and pyschopaths (which why I started this blog in the first place).

However, I will continue to post Positive Quotes and Just Sayings, as well as writing about other random stuff.

I value your input, so if you think my blog is too ‘all over the place’, then please, let me know. I may then create another blog dedicated specifically to this particular topic.

Much love. ❤
