"Girl, it's not about you.." *whispers to self for the twentieth time today* I'm sure most of you are aware of self-help books. These books are everywhere on social media and in stores, and in the minds and hearts of the countless women who have read them.

Now, let me… Continue reading struggle bus.
You know in "The Princess Bride" (I'm just going off of my hope that you have all seen that movie, and if you haven't...inconceivable!) when Westley and Buttercup are in that crazy forest and Buttercup steps into sinking sand?
