Go out and by a new outfit to wear to the party doesn't sound like a bad idea. The kids need help with their homework. Why not have the oldest child help the younger siblings? Where's mom?! She's tucked away in her office or on the couch glued to her Smartphone or laptop plugging away trying to meet some deadline. 'Dinner?! Oh! crap. Just order a pizza'.

Its funny sometimes the situations we allow ourselves to get wrapped up in before we realize we deserve so much better. The extent we'll go to be the perfect person, support and partner. How often does it seem one sided, incomplete? How often are WE actually happy in the end? It seems in some of us, love --or the potential of love and happy endings--awakens the masochistic demons that cause us so much suffering.
