Life is not as easy as it’s made out to be. It’s always something. Never ending, always moving forward. Always finding errors with how we acted or reacted. And, when it finally does come to an end, it’s usually too abrupt for us to have tidied up the mess we’ve made.

IT’S NOT EASY TO BE YOU

By Al Garcia

Life is not as easy as it’s made out to be.  It’s always something.  Never ending, always moving forward.  Always finding errors with how we acted or reacted.  And, when it finally does come to an end, it’s usually too abrupt for us to have tidied up the mess we’ve made.

We adjust and readjust ourselves to fit into each day we live.  It takes so many years to mold and sculpt and form, the man or woman that you are.  You pretend, you deceive, you mislead, and you even betray yourself along the way.  And it’s not easy to be you.

No matter how you try.  No matter what you say or do.  You cannot change the person that you are.  To try to be someone you are not, is such a waste of the person that you are.

For if it was easy to be you, then everyone would want to be you, and then, who would you be?
