Female Development and Style

Is something wrong with me?

Because I am the one.

The one men come to when they want a slice of heaven

When it’s time to let go of it all

When they want to feed their bones with joy

They always come

They always take part of me

But.

They never stay.

What is wrong with me?

Anike.

You see, you have precious stones and light inside you, some days you give emerald, some days ruby. Some days light that can last a town for years.

There is an immediate thirst at the sight of your being, the craving of what you have to offer. There is so much power living inside you.

So, these men. they come, they come to have a taste.

Anike, you should know that the best of them all is not deserving of you. So next time when they come to take, you refuse.

Let them till the soil and say their prayers before they are allowed into your holy place.

    This is one of the most powerful posts I’ve read in a long time. It’s amazing how much you can say with a few words when they’re the right ones.

    Your words are filled with so much emotion. I can see the self-understanding grow throughout the post as the question stops being “What’s wrong with me?” and then moves onto how to display empowerment in the relationship.

    Funke,

    I hear this loud and clear. I want you to know there absolutely nothing wrong with you!

    If not for anything, you are much more than a slice of heaven.
    Maybe it’s time for this “slice” to be put back in the shelf and kept away from grabbing stingy hands till the right guest comes along.
    Above all else, protect your heart.

    Love and light,
    Always.

    I couldn’t agree more. Never allow a man to come and steal the best parts of you only when he wants to.

    Men AND women have a way of using each other these days. Definitely refuse the person who does this to you.
