“A competitive and insecure woman will tell you that “true love” is never giving up on someone you're in love with. A confident and spiritual woman knows that “moving on” doesn’t mean you never loved someone.

Letting go is sometimes the hardest thing, but it is the most “real love” you will ever experience.”

Proud to have great friends who, in their minds, were my Duffs.”
