The Games we play
The Games we play
The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry. Catchy little saying adapted from a Robert Burns poem (I think). It pretty much means no matter how much you plan something out, some little glitch will pop up. So expect the unexpected or better yet, expect the worst and you won't be disapointed.
If you're dealing with something with clear cut rules and guidelines, and a little glitch will ruin anything, just imagine what would happen when you're dealing in areas with shady rules or rules that are constantly being changed. What am I ranting about? Relationships. Any size, any shape, any form. Anything from your beer drinking buddies to the cute couple you just hang out with once in a while all the way to the seductive little vixen you can't wait to get your hands on. They're all relationships, very fragile and very fluid.
Your beer drinking buddy decide to confide in you he's a crossdresser, smokes crack like it's going out of style, closet homosexual or even likes little boys/girls, whatever the case may be. The cute couple you think is so perfect turns out to be not so perfect. This one really gripes my a$$ so I'll say the least here (might vent later on another posting). The seductive vixen you just met? Tread carefully, new relationships are made of glass, one bad move and you're dating Fistina and her half sister.
So why do we play these games? Don't BS yourself, we all do. Granted, some more than others. Lack of communication, being able to express what's going on in your mind. Fear of rejection. Prejudices from past experiances. The ability to trust. Carnal lusting. The list goes on.
So what do you do when everything starts to fail? The only person most of us can count on is themself. Even then problems can arise. Seeking comfort in bad places, like the bottom of a bottle, or an ex-lovers arms. Those are all bad ideas and make the situation worse. You have to reach down deep and pull yourself up by your bootstraps. No one ever said life was easy, but it's a heck of a lot better than the alternative.
As always, the floor is open for comments.
