What is love?

LOVE I have been thinking a lot about love lately. About what it is, how we find it and how we develop more of it… Growing up, I thought I knew what love would be like, or how it should be. In high school I only dated a little bit, and my first few years…

Supporting One Another

Supporting one another  I just recently watched the Netflix series–13 Reasons Why. I won’t give anything away, but this series is one that promotes awareness.
