I'm tired of...

the games.


I wish life was as simple as a game of scrabble or solitaire. It's not. People play games all the time. Games are played in relationships, work places, you name it really.
I was having a quick lunch out in the sunshine yesterday when I heard this woman at the table next to me, lean back in her chair and sigh: "I'll just have to play the game then, won't I?"
It's exhausting isn't it?
Why can't we just be? Why can't we be happy for people and genuinely happy for people? Why can't we all just realise that what you can do, I can't necessarily do and vice versa? Why can't that be OK, instead of it being a jealousy thing? Why can't we accept that there is enough to go around for everyone?Why can't people be satisfied? Does everyone need to be better than the other? Have we become that greedy?
It can be exhausting. I wish I was like Hiro in the series: Heroes. I would love to just freeze time so that I could take a breather.
When did life, love and work get so complicated?

It's what human beings do...they/ we complicate things!

Annoying really but it's pretty easy to be blunt/ straight about what you're thinking - ignore the games...life is far better!

I hate the games. I refuse to play them. If I meet a boy I like then I'll text and call him as I please. None of this leaving it for hours before replying - and trying to pretend like I'm not interested.

I can't stand it.

But I am still single so perhaps not the way to play it ;)

I hate playing the games too. And mostly i ignore the rules and do whatever my little heart and mind tells me. this doesn't always work.....but i'm not very good at the game, as i'm a terrible liar...so i'll just stick to my way of doing things.

It's bloody annoying! *sigh*

Such good questions Blondie...Totally agree with you. I wish I could be like Hiro too.

Hiro is awesome, and not only because he can freeze time. He also never loses heart! (Ok, except for that one time when he nearly let Sylar kill him, but everyone is allowed ONE fuck up) Imagine you could be like that too....

Hiro ROCKS Nats!

Good point Lopz! Hiro has a lot of heart... I guess everyone is allowed one or two or three fuck ups hey? hahaha!!
