The games grown children play

When we're children, there are so many games that we play with other people our own age. Whether it be physical or imaginary, there are multiple variations on the same theme.

Some children grow up to be adults, while others remain grown children.

They continue to play variations of the same game. The rules change slightly, and the players are being played.

They play with your heart, and they play with your mind. But, they never play with themselves.

Not as stimulating, I guess...

They find thrills in manipulating the lives of others, while believing no one will get hurt. It's all a game, n'est-ce pas? It's fun! It's exciting! No one can get hurt playing a game.

Unfortunately, they don't realize they're the only ones playing.

I don't like playing games. So, don't play games with me.

We are not children, and I am not a toy.

People only try to play you when they think they're smarter than you. It pisses you off because it indicates that the other person somehow, sees you as mentally inferior...one who can be manipulated by someone as wise as they are. It's worked for them at times...with other people, and it always comes as a shock to them when you're not as easily played.

Whether you're just playing a game or simply living your life, the key is respecting other players. I think the element of "respect" is lost these days and that's when things get messy... and people get hurt.

By the way, Hello. My name is Rich and I like the way you write. I hope you don't mind me drop in every now and then.

Baby, you just gotta find someone who plays well with OTHERS.

That or put your opponent in checkmate.

Take care.

You should know by now that I am the most normal person you will ever have the opportunity of meeting.

There's a difference between people who play WITH you, and people who just try to play you. Being played with can be a good thing(wink)!
