    Five Stars. So grateful to you, Karen, the chat, and anyone that does not mind sharing information and resources regarding our history. I love Drapetomania X! I cannot wait for Michael Harriot to become a regular on TBGWT!
    PS. Apia, I tried to be something I was not when I was young and misinformed in my 20s! So glad for growth, experiences, education, therapy, and books!

    Karen, I was touched by your sharing about how you had some insecurity when it came to Rod’s friendship with someone. I would never have thought that would be the case! The part that resonated was your own self-reflection about why you had those insecurities and then how you addressed it with him. I think it’s normal for us to have those feelings, but I think most people stop at questioning themselves as to why they do, which can then lead to some problematic behavior. When I first got with my husband I was sooo insecure and jealous – I would lose my mind and yell at him if he looked to be talking too long to a pretty woman or stuff like that. And my husband is not a player at all. After a while, I saw how crazy I was acting and worked it through with someone. Turns out it was that old childhood stuff. In my case, coming from a family where a lot of the men cheated, and seeing how it wore down the women, I was like “Oh, hell no. That ain’t happening to me.” And I was super aggressive in making sure no man even tried it. My poor husband. Anyway, between seeing that, and frankly just time and my husband showing over and over again he wasn’t that guy, it finally went away. But the first step was looking at me. He now has several women friends, and it’s not a problem at all, but it took a minute for me to get there. Thanks for sharing!

    Luckily I always liked the way Mr Apia looked and dressed.
    Now for the last year he decided to let his hair grow. It’d not my favorite but it’s OK. I dont complain. He still has full hair so at least that’s good.
    I’m glad that after 17 years I still think my husband looks great.
    I only complain when in winter he wears sweaters that are itchy. I’m very sensitive to it. Otherwise I mind my business.

    When I was a very young Apia I used to date potential and I do not recommend it!
    I used to want to change the style of men for example and see them as a project. I always thought when I break up with them the next woman will get a better man! My present to the whole womanhood.
    Now I work on myself so thats better. When you are inder 25 and do it, ok. But stop eventually.
