The Life of a Savage


Take the TIME to Understand the White Lies…

I was so hurt when I wrote those words. This poem is one of many White Lies that I told myself because I was tired of giving my all to end up with less than nothing in return, but let’s think for a moment. I know when I wrote this poem I had reached a breaking point. When you invest so much time into a person, it feels detrimental when things don’t work out quite the way you expect them to.

Put the EFFORT into Recognizing the Purple Truths…

The Purple Truth of the matter is I allowed myself to be taken advantage of. I was allowing people to be around me and not add value to my life. This is one of many situations regarding my life that I will take you through. I’ve never been the type of woman to place blame on others for what I allowed to occur. Obviously you can see that I took the alternative route when I wrote this poem. I chose to be angry and appear cold knowing fully well all I wanted at that moment was reciprocity. I just wanted to feel kindness, love, and a glimpse of the beautiful moments I had contributed. I am not a savage, nor have I ever been. This was not my life I was describing. Instead, it was my interpretation of someone else’s.

Take ACTION to Change Your Circumstances

If someone cannot reciprocate the T.E.A. (Time, Effort, Action) that you put into him or her, my advice to you would be to choose yourself first. Only you can understand the magnitude of your experience. If that experience deems to be unhealthy and you find yourself more distraught than you are happy, it leaves you with a decision to make so go ahead and make it.
