"When you lie down with dogs, you will get up with fleas"
Self-reflection on my part. A moment of clarity on a Monday morning last month.
Why was I angry? Why was I defending my reputation to those who didn't deserve my time?
Why did I give my support and trust to those who attempted to destroy my spirit and fester doubt in my mind?
The answer was...I'm human. A self-imposed delusion that others have good intentions. A childlike belief that the ones you've befriended have your best interests at heart.
So I had an awakening of sorts.
Instead of turning the other cheek I attacked and returned venom tenfold. Scorching the earth with vitriol and burning every bridge in my path.
Caught up in hatred and distraction. Surrounded by toxic people.
No regrets. It's how I cope.
I did learn something...these vile creatures are who they are because they've lost the ability to love themselves. And through my small awakening and weeks of studying them without rose-colored glasses...their true faces were revealed.
The people I thought I knew were nothing more than annoying skin tags.
So I had them removed.
I really like it here. Thanks for having me.
