We are attracted to each other. After our first kiss we knew that we had a connection. I wonder…are we are going to play the game or will we remove the walls and grow without reservations?
When two people meet, they engage in the present and past. What about the future? They hope for a future but instantly activate wisdom. We obtain knowledge, then gain wisdom, but rarely go beyond. Wisdom is also based on a form of perception. What about living? The present is wonderful but they use the past experience as a guide. Wisdom, yes…but it also limits growth. Can we fully give ourselves and move forward and upward?
Most romance stories talk about the quest for love. We usually see the success but rarely pay attention to what it took to arrive there. A friend said that push and pull means “fighting against self, not being authentic in your feelings and actions…not feeling able…to act on your heart’s desires”. Why do we do this?
We continue talking and I let her know my dreams. I express that I really don’t want to play “the game” and if we can be open and honest without the fear of revealing. She seems open, but the resistance is there. The past is dictating. The stories from friends are dictating. I find myself giving in to the vicious cycle of the game.
Time passed and we are still wrapped up in the game of push and pull. I think to myself, can we move pass this?
The push and pull becomes a part of day to day life. I begin to see that some of us don’t ever stop fighting against our self. We take that fight to other aspects of our lives and create this unsure push and pull game.
Here is a concept. If you like someone, say it. If you have a dream, fulfill it. Be bold, fearless and sincere in your actions.
