There’s a difference between:

— Wanting to learn and to honestly continue to try to do a little better, in every and any of life’s situations that I find myself engaged with,


— Wanting to be perfect, in every way possible, or, at least in a few ways, nearly perfect.

Here’s the difference:

One is always possible.

The other is always impossible.

Guess which one most of us set as our goal? What we aim for most often?

EZ, right? And, when the impossible from the start remains impossible, when we cannot bend reality to obey our mighty will power for ever (or for very long) (if at all, honestly) (some?) or for every situation, we get pissy and,

well, we don’t then revert to the other option.

Nope. We double down on our initial misstep.

We claim the game is rigged, or broken, or that maybe, it’s been speculated by some, that we have been what’s been broken from the start. Really? 

Oh, I see,

this way, we don’t have to honestly learn to do better.

We just pray to be saved.
