“Being obstinate is part of human nature. Even when we know the truth, telling it to ourselves is one of the most difficult things for a person to do.”
I’m sitting here, wondering how far I’ve come; how much I’ve learned. Telling myself the truth would, more often than not, save me a lot of trouble. If anyone should have learned that by now, it should be me. My life has been a map drawn from the many errors that’ve left enough hair line cracks across the face of my soul to trace my mistakes into a recognizable pattern.
But do I learn from them?
Drawn to dysfunction, I seem to find myself in the same position, manifested in different manners. In the midst of the smoke I see the red lasers. The alarms in my head go off when I trip them. To run or not? Remains to be seen.
My life is changing; completely. I hope this change is for the best. Not “better”, “best”. I will learn, I will live. I’ll be the best I can and offer the best I have to give. I may fail some tests, but I’ll never make the same mistakes.
If lying to myself is being human, I guess it’s time to get that “S” soldered to my chest.
