Facebook is a fab outlet to connect with our friends, but it doesn't have to be the barometer of our worthiness anymore. We can live like we were meant to live -- fully, whole-heartedly and authentically. Let someone else keep up with the Joneses, because you're done.

TRUSTe did a bang up job establishing themselves as the must have credential that sites paid them well for. You offer eye candy and a pretty little logo to provide a sense of security.

What To Do When Your Bestie Becomes A Bitch

Treva Brandon | Posted 12.10.2014 | Fifty
Treva Brandon

I'm sad to report that even the greatest friendships end. Even the ones you thought were rock solid and iron clad; with history and memories, unconditional love and support. A B.F.F. breakup can be worse than a boy breakup: it creates the same kind of pain, rejection and abandonment, but it leaves a bigger hole in your heart.

The holiday season is hard on everyone, but the best suggestion I can give is to remember that the gifts are not the important part. The final gift that you can really give, and for some it costs nothing, for others a lot, is to try to find a way to be there for the holidays.

Robin Korth

Learning to say "goodbye" -- and hopefully doing it well -- is something that simply comes with getting older. We say goodbye to our youth, to some of our dreams and eventually to some of the people that walked the road with us.

Lisa Steinberg

Television is our safety, our constant. Much like reality and real relationships, we can't always count on it not to hurt us. Just like our own selves, these characters have flaws. No one lives a perfect life, not even a fictional television character, no matter which pair of rose-colored glasses you wear to watch.

Traditional Thanksgiving is anything but Friendsgiving. It is, in fact, one of the only times Americans allow themselves to break bread, literally, with the enemy. This is the true meaning of Thanksgiving, after all.
