Brain F*#k’d


Humans can be disappointing.

They have the power to build you up,

or tear you down.

They can support you, give you hope and care for you,

or they can rip out your heart and try to take away all of your self esteem and confidence.

Funny enough, it is usually those closest to us that brain fuck us the hardest.

They are the ones who make empty promises to ease their own guilt;

so they can sleep at night.

They are the ones who stick their head in the sand;

pretending everything is fine.

They are the ones who don rose coloured glasses;

living in a world of delusion.

But it doesn’t matter.

You don’t need them.

You might want them.

But you don’t need them.

You need you.

Because even though they brain fucked you, you will rise;  you will prevail;  you are strong;  you are confident; and you don’t need insecure, selfish people in your life.

You need you.

So wake up, get out of bed and put on your big girl panties.

You have a life to live girlfriend.

  1. Sometimes people don’t quite live up to our expectations. I often give them the benefit of the doubt the first few times, recognizing that perhaps they have something going on in their own lives that prevents them from fulfilling their promises. Having said that, we also need to prepared to recognize that there are some people we just need to move on from.

    Most people on earth are blessed with such close-ones-to-hurt people in their lives. Nice write up:)

  3. I can definitely relate to this, not at this point in time but I’ve been there. But you’re right, we’re the ones with the power that we so often give away to others. We need to be strong and look out for our own well-being. Take care.
