In the wake of Ed Sheeran getting ready to release new music, I’ve been listening to his back catalogue. Today at the gym his song “Save Yourself” shuffled on. I haven’t heard it in years and today it hit a lot differently, having been through some difficult situations and experiences, I fully appreciate the lyrics a lot more.
I gave all my oxygen to people that could breath
I gave away my money and now we don’t even speak
I drove miles and miles but would you do the same for me
In the past I have helped friends financially, only for them to turn their back on me and cut my out of their life. And friends that I constantly show up for and support them in all their endeavors, can’t even be happy for me and my successes and achievements.
It took a lot of soul searching, but the end results was… “So before I save someone else, I’ve got to save myself“.
