Lately I've been feeling like I've been playing more of the types of games that people play with one another's emotions. Which is not to say I've been playing them with malice or playing them frivolously. I'm just more aware that we all play some sort of game with each other. Most of the time it is just emotional "keep away". We all need to feel safe. Often that is just what keeps us from playing the fun sort of games we all want to play. Sometimes I hear friends complain that they've been too busy working. I wonder when they will just get fed up and do something about the lack of emotion in their lives.

Then wonderful things happen, you finally connect with someone you've spent a lot of thought with. You stop feeling like you're playing at anything and you realize how much you've spent your time playing half-heartedly. At the same time, you realize that you are out of practise with the games that two people play. You only have your confidence that you can play fair within a friendship and that it extends to other aspects of your life. Everything is connected, after all.
