When Crying Isn't Enough

Sometimes you cry tears of frustration because life isn’t what you’d thought it would be. You tried to play the games by the rules but found that it wasn’t getting you anywhere. You’re not even sure if you were playing the same games as everyone else. Life was supposed to be simple. As a child you couldn’t wait to be an adult because you would get to do what you wanted to. But here you are and nothing is as it’s supposed to be. And people aren’t always what they present themselves to be. That’s where you learned to play the game of deception, which you still aren’t good at. You’ve found there are those that are very skilled at being someone else. Then there are others like yourself that have difficulty being deceptive because they find it easier to just be themselves. What if everyone refused to play games anymore and were honest about who they are and what they want out of life. What a novel idea to be able to trust others to be who they present themselves to be. It’s time to dry your tears and move on from a place of helplessness. You have the power to create the life that is true to who you are. In that special place there is no room for games only honesty and acceptance of who we are.
I’m not sure if I’m supposed to be going back into the water or staying out here…
