Thorns, Spines, and Prickles.

Soft, Glowing & Evolving. Self-help | Growth | Words of Wisdom | Jyoti Patel

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

You are like a rose
Soft, glowing and evolving
It’s time for you
To let go of the deadly thorns

Never trust
The guy who claims
He misses you but never puts
In effort to actually
Set plans with you

Fall in love
With someone
Who helps you to fly high
And not with someone
Who cannot lift you up
When you crash down

You are like a rose
Soft, glowing and evolving
It’s time for you
To let go of the deadly thorns

    Thrive Global
    People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
