TRUTH and CONSEQUENCES #2

TRUTH:
I am insecure in my self. I am afraid of failure to the point where I have failed to try. Even when I am certain of my authority in a subject, I second guess my own abilities.

CONSEQUENCE:
I have failed to live up to my own expectations as well as what society has expected of me. As a husband. A son. A brother. Even as a father, I have come up decidedly short of what I should have been.

And, frankly, I should have been amazing…

…But the truth for me is I have enjoyed living my life MY way. I have lost and gained and lost again and if I were given the off chance to somehow go back and do it all differently….

….I would adamantly have changed nothing….well…..very little.

Score Card (based entirely on outcome):

      1. So why haven’t you given any points towards recognizing and telling the truth? Is it an illusion so make others think you’ve lost when actually, you’re winning?

      2. Hmmm… Interesting. I truly didn’t think of it that way. I suppose I recognize the truth in this one, and though I personally view the consequence as a victory, the truth is I lost. I hadn’t actually thought of rewarding the truth for being told before…

      3. See you didn’t lose after all you recognized the truth, which means you won! Especially, if you have trouble recognizing and expressing truth. I think the score is truth 2 consequences 2.

      4. Well I’ll be. I have to admit that one. The score REALLY is 2 and 2, isn’t it? I find it so hard to express truth that I even failed to credit myself when I finally did. Well done, my friend. I truly have to think about this one now.
