Into a new realm

I am a sociology major and I love my studies. I recently took a class on deviance which really opened my eyes to the many layers of society. When people are classified as deviant, more often than not, they have reasons why they decided to act that way. Perhaps it was lack of education, or…

Step 2 (part 1): Figuring out what the hell just happened.

Dealing with a narcissist is by far one of the most challenging things I have come across in my life. I think it might be due to the fact that they are such a contradiction to themselves. They have no sense of morality. When my relationship with the narcissist ended…I felt like a used piece…
