Simplicity

life is really simple, but I insist on making it complicated

the desert isn’t complicated

I live in a world where being busy and achieving things is expected, and there are other expectations, arguments, and contrary opinions about everything.  My mind makes my life more painful than it really should be.  Life is really simple but I make it complicated.

At this time of year I look around at those I used to know well, and feel a little compulsion to keep up with their lifestyles and successes.  I feel that urge to fill my days with stuff to do and goals to achieve ~ creating new subordinates, colleagues, co workers, and money to fill the empty spaces in my life.  But colleagues and co workers are never friends past lunch-time.

I have planned vacations and dreamed of women who would enjoy doing very little with me.  But those women would be empty vessels and not real friends at all.  I will not five up all I am for a couple of weeks of fun.

It turns out that this is a had luck life and I had better accept that and live a simple life.  It’s not an easy choice.  It will take a bit of strength to find straightforward solutions to my problems, and rid my life of self-made complications and toxic people.  But it’s past time to de-clutter my life and my emotions.  Simplicity is the smart choice for healthy people.

Keep it Simple Stupid is a good mantra for me.  It’s a good life choice to rid myself of people that only make my life complicated.  No matter what happens I should ask myself ‘do I really want this’  am I just adding more stress and complications to my life?  Is what I am doing honest, open, clean, decent and with some real purpose?  Actually, over the past week the answer to those questions is no.

I have not been 100% honest and straightforward, I’ve been as crooked as a snake about some things, lied about some things, and wanted some other things I shouldn’t want.  Jealousy, envy, and covetousness are where I’ve been.

I know that I have a problem, and I should think twice before saying anything.  Fuck I am not a saint, and that’s what I need to be to get over Borderline Personality Disorder.

Some say that yo just have to carry on giving.  And that there is no end in sight.  All I know is that everything will be all right.
