Dear Donna, I’m falling in love with my friend and it is completely unexpected. I’ve been praying to God for him to bring a good man into my life and all along that ‘good man’ has been someone I’ve known for nearly seven years. We’ve always got on really well but never

What have I learned from the last decade? Well, it’s been a testing one that’s for sure, but it’s also been the most amazing pilgrimage of self discovery I’ve ever been on. I feel like the last decade is where I really became an adult, anything before was part of my youth. In 2010 I
