Isn’t it funny how one person hangs on because they feel sorry or think they are helping another.

And that person is doing the same.

When if we just made decisions that were the healthiest for ourselves, we would be doing not only ourselves but also our friends a favor.

And we wouldn’t end up wanting to punch them in the face several years later.

But such is life, and we are all shortsighted.

some people make you your best self

while others make you your worst self

it’s always okay to say good bye

The Worst Thing

It’s selfish and conceited, but sometimes I like to think I was your worst.

I was this little period in your life that you swallow pills to forget

I was the worst thing to ever happen to you

I kept you up all night, tossing in your bed, while thoughts went round your head

Like who the fuck is she, and did she mean what she said?

I’m a little piece of nightmare that got stuck in your dream teeth.

I’m the ghost devil on your shoulder, that you really thought was dead

And every so often you recall what I did

And think shit what did I get into, and can it never happen again.

I was conceited when I loved you, I was selfish when I left

I tossed words without abandon, I belittled what we had

Misery loves company, was my battle cry

I hung the phrase on all my banners, and let harsh words fall from my lips

Each second I felt scorned I thought would be my last

Every teardrop that fell from my eye you knew I blamed on you

I stuck a dagger in your chest, hoping to rake through

Your ribs and crack them down to dust

I love to imagine how I was the worst thing to ever happen to you

And in that I will be immortalized

That slanderous tale told at a cabin, and ghost story for the young

A cautionary tale of psycho bitches and what can come undone

A warning for your friends, a comedy for the bored,

A thank-your-lucky-stars-it-wasn’t-you for the unappreciative ignored

I will outlive all the rest, based on my infamy of horribleness

And then I feel downright bad.

Because I loved you in the moment, I treasured what we had

I trusted every word you spoke, believed each lie you said –

I think we both did – and when I started believing I was the

Worst thing that could happen to you, that I was crazy and insane,

I ran away and still blame you, even if it’s all in vain

Because I am the worst thing to ever happen to you

Shaping Change: Sleep, Why is it so Important?

shapingchange:

sleep is important

By Marcus de Guingand, Managing Director of Third Pillar of Health Ltd

Sleep, together with exercise and nutrition, form the three pillars of health. Across the developed world the quantity and quality of sleep we obtain is falling. But why is sleep so important to our physical and…

A greater risk of major illness for one! A survey of 18,000 adults in the US in 2007 revealed that those who slept less than 6 hours a night were 23% more likely to be obese than those sleeping 7 to 9 hours a night. This rose to 50% in 5-hour sleepers and 73% in 4 hours sleepers. Boston School of Medicine also revealed that those who slept less than 5 hours a night were 2.5 times more likely to develop diabetes versus 7 to 8 hours sleepers. Furthermore a study by UCL and Warwick Universities found that the risk of dying of fatal heart disease doubles among people who cut the hours of sleep from 7 to 5 hours.”
