Hide and Seek,

find my emotions,

is a game

that some adults


to stop playing.

Fear, you may learn too much about me if I let my emotions show.

Fear, you may use my emotional weaknesses to hurt me if I tell

you too much about myself. Fear, you may not like me if you know

too much about my emotional personae.

So we’ll play the game of you tell me one thing about you and

I’ll tell you one thing about me.

So we’ll play the game that I’ll say that I agree with you,

even when I don’t.

So we’ll play the game of I’ll tell you, only if you promise

not to tell anyone else.

So eventually the fear, distrust and the lies are found out

and the Game is Over, no more friendship, no more relationship,

no more marriage.

Grow up, stop playing games.

The rules of the game say that first you must know yourself.

There can be no two sets of rules, one for you and one for others.

Emotions and motives may only be positive: no fear, hate,

distrust, jealousy, envy, spite or other feelings which may

harm you or others are allowed in the game.

Other important rules include:

No lying, No cheating, and No stealing.
(Unless it is stealing second base during
the family picnic softball game.)

Lawyer language should not be needed to outline or detail

the rules of engagement.

No disclaimers allowed.

Faith, hope, courage, kindness, and love are feelings

the God has given man to make this world a better place to live.

Misuse of these emotions violates the rules of God’s game.

Be honest, obeying the rules of common decency is everyone’s


Be open minded, accept God’s world as it is, not as you think

it should be.

Be willing, change is a part of growing, some rules are made

to be broken.

Have faith that those who do the will of a Higher Power are

all winners in the game of life.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.

ME and the Boss
