Being in a relationship is a lot like carrying a big bucket around with you everywhere you go. A strange image, to be sure, but stay with me here. It will all make sense in a moment.

What an epic failure I am. Everything I set out to do didn’t work out. Somewhere I got off track and totally lost focus. I’m done. I’ve heard these lame excuses so often from my clients, I’ve lost count. And no matter how often I’ve heard them, they still bother me. Because once again, it [...]
