Why sometimes pursuing your persona happy isn’t always a good thing?

Just when the season is over Real Housewives of Atlanta decides it is NOW time to get good! News broke today that Porsha is now ENGAGED to Falynn’s husband. When did this happen? Huh? What? Weren’t they friends? He was staring WAY too hard at the ladies in the pool on the show :)

Porsha broke the news on her social media that Falynn is now divorced and after the divorce she and Falynn’s ex fell in love and are now engaged. THEN she adds that Dennis is in favor of the relationship and they are all trying to live their best lives.

WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE?

Here are my thoughts …

Support the financial freedom of survivors of human trafficking through learning more about The START Act in NY.

It is International Women’s Day!

The START Act in NY is a bill that will ensure that victims of human trafficking are able to access financial security without their prior criminal records during the time they were trafficked stopping their opportunities. Prostitution charges are currently removed from survivors records, but many traffickers force victims to engage in other crimes that are not removed that then places survivors in a financial crisis due to having felonies that they were coerced or forced to commit still stand in their way when they try to access things like employment, financial aid and more.
