One would think that after spending almost 20 years living in downtown Chicago it would be unlikely that I fall victim to a scam. Not the case. A couple weeks ago, I took my kids to the Cubs game. It was a perfect weather day, we had great seats, the game was nail biting, and the hot dogs delicious. Everyone was happy.
The unfortunate reality is that relationships might start strong, but many times people lose their passion, their connection, and their way.

Hating your ex is toxic. It is toxic to your kids, to your professional life, to your romantic relationships and mostly to yourself. Hating long enough will kill you. It's a really, really bad disease.
I am a 44 year old female with several university degrees. I've raised three children into adulthood, have owned a successful business for 13 years, am a writer for The Educators Room and the Huffington Post. I also have a children's book published.
