We are all born savages.

Our bodies adapt to so many different environments- when it is is injured, it finds a way to keep our major organs alive longer. When we are hot, it finds a way to cool us down as much as possible. When it is cold, it finds a way to keep our major organs functioning. I can give so many examples of how our bodies are made to go the distance. The problem is while our bodies are built to go the distance, our minds are not conditioned to do the same.

If a person is interested in you romantically, they will MAKE TIME to reply to your texts (as if that’s so hard to do). If they can’t meet you on a certain day for a date, they will tell you the soonest possible alternative date and confirm it with you. They will call you back that day if they miss your call.

Or perhaps if you feel you HAVE been wasting your life up until this moment, I’d like to write a quick thing for you here:

Fulfillment – true fulfillment – is still a possibility for you even now.
