Shame: A Destroyer of Relationships

Shame: A Destroyer of Relationships

No matter where I went and the wild range of people I became invested in, there came a time that inevitably the relationship would shatter. Like cold glass heated too quickly. And just as unexpectedly.
What does he have that I don’t?!

What does he have that I don’t?!

The air was cold on my skin as I took my nightly walk, replying to a friend's voice message. Suddenly I was overcome with an emotional sucker punch that doubled me over. My mind blanked reliving a series of memories I thought I’d long moved past. My soul and voice raw...

Bored with school and wanting to escape my personal life,I dove deep into learning about the world, other cultures, people, and what makes us human. 

I figured I’d always be in Ohio, a little out of place and bit out of step with my peers. To the ridicule of the adults around me, in college I decided I was going to get a degree in communications, deeply fascinated by humanity, what motivates us, and how we share that with others.
