Princess and the Pea?

When I was young I was quite gullible, believing those fairy tales where happily ever after was a potential reality. A child has no concept of what reality truly is until the teenage years descend upon them in a flurry of hormonal insanity - and herein lies the time frame that the heart really starts to learn about the consequences of love. My father says I'm a hopeless romantic, to which I believe the man is kind enough not to tell me I am an outright fool.

It is true, though. I believe that one day love will conquer all, no matter how much cynicism I coat everything with. And yet again, just recently I fell for the charms of another such charlatan, promising me the stars and all my dreams within fingers reach......

I wonder, when will I finally say enough is enough? When will I finally come to see that there is no fairy tale ending, that the life that my little child self believed in, will never be? How many lies and deceits will I tolerate before I call bullshit??

Thought for the Day....

Sometimes you have to take what you have and enjoy it for what it is. Sometimes, that might be all that you get.

Crazy Train

I suppose I should start this off by admitting two things: I'm a fool and my heart is blinded.

With that being said, I've tried numerous times in love and friendships to always give second, sometimes third chances. What have I come to find out from this? That I should only give one chance and move along - people are fucking crazy. Not that we all don't have some manic moments, especially when emotions get in the way...but when someone has boarded the crazy train with no destination in mind, watch out.

This new phase in my life will see me removing a LOT of toxicity - and that means weeding out those who are too selfish to see past their own nose. I'm done with being 'nice' and 'understanding'. I should say it's  time for me to be somewhat selfish - in the aspect of self preservation. I just had to learn the hard way, yet again, that most people are not worth my time. My true friends and I will *always* be there for one another, not just the convenient times. I may have a large circle of acquaintances, but only a few have the pleasure of being my true friend.

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."
-Steve Jobs

I was reminded today that this journey is mine, and the decisions I make are mine. The only 'people' I should be pleasing is myself.
