Toxic men function in contrast to sensibility, but they also have very normal times, and can even have long stretches of time when they are very loving, kind, and accommodating, which leaves their partners conflicted over whether or not the guy is actually good or bad.

The break-up happened because Kim came to her senses and realized Humphries wasn’t the catch she thought he was.

Even though many saw disaster written all over Kris, Kim didn’t even suspect it, partly, perhaps, because she wanted that wedding.

Will this New Year be just like the others? Every New Year we make the same resolutions and don’t stick to them. It’s not necessarily because we don’t have the discipline. It’s probably because these New Year’s resolutions are based on us believing that we are just not good enough as we are. Think about it: if you were that comfortable with who you were and wanted to make certain changes to your body, wouldn’t you be better able to fulfill these resolutions?
