Learning About Toxic Relationships

Learning About Toxic Relationships

[Guest Post]

Hi everyone. I’m Lima, a Relationship and Lifestyle Blogger and I happen to love tasting the waters, so I have made a lot of mistakes as a Christian. I am not exactly proud of everything I have been through that’s why I teach people how to avoid them. You can read all about it here.

Of course this wasn’t said to me directly, it was rather an indirect reference. The funny part about it, is that they weren’t even my friends just acquaintances.
