Why Being In Love Sometimes Means Sacrificing Your Needs For Your Partner’s

“Money will be tighter than it’s ever been,” said my fiance a few weeks ago. That statement felt like a bullet going through my heart because I know why he said it. It’s because everything has come crashing down on us faster than we could ever imagine, and we must get out of the living situation we’re in.

I’ve Lived In Tennessee For 6 Months And It Still Doesn’t Feel Like Home

When I moved to Tennessee, I figured after a while, I’d fall in further in love with it, but unfortunately that’s not the truth. Sure, the people are way nicer and would literally lend a hand to anyone in need of help, but that still didn’t have me convinced. I thought by 6 months, it would feel like home.
