Me to Me...

I keep talking to myself:
"You know better."

I don't listen to myself:
"It'll be fine."

The argument begins:
"I want to believe what I see."

"You deserve better."

"Maybe there is no better."

"Of course there is. Look around."

...until one of me says:
"I give up."

Whew, it's tough when you start losing arguements to yourself!

That's a hard one; to hope or give up hope? Are there times when it hurts too much to hope, that giving up is the better part of valor? Or is giving up hope giving up life? Hmmmm....

Sometimes giving up is the best answer. Especially when you know you're gonna win either way.

Sparrow - good questions, all... I'm still hoping.

Jack - "...when you know you're gonna win either way."... that doesn't happen often, does it?

Larry - back attcha, dear man.

Michele - but, which one of me is giving up..."you know better" or "it'll be fine" ?

The voices in my head fight all the time!

So far, I've managed to keep beating down the one that says "kill them all.....noone will ever catch you.."

Jean said...

Lee - wow... and you look like such a peaceful soul!

Lee said...

LOL!

Oh, if you only knew.

Jean said...

Lee - well... do tell!...:)

Wow, so many of you...more to love!

Although....the theme I related to here was what I recognized as self-doubt, if I was reading into this correctly...story of my frickin' life.

Jean said...

Erica - self-doubt?... yeah, questioning which one of me to trust.
