    Loving dangerously toxic people

    Listen I don't use that word lightly. Its almost like a swear word. Defining a toxic person, somebody who puts you in danger, says hurtful things, is careless and inconsiderate to the extreme. There is somebody like this trying to pry their way back into my life from a long time ago, an old...
