We’re all magicians creating illusions until the curtain falls, then we step into another world that is away from the stage where a hero lives, and we are on our own. But what if the in-front and the behind were the very same, and there was no need for a curtain? There would be no 'giving people what they want', then begrudging them for wanting what is given. Does it just come down to all of us being fair to ourselves first, so that we can be fair to others and other things?
And I don't wonder about your life experiences that have made you a pretty solid person with a grand amount of life within and of you, because what we do with what we do is who we are and we are all the same...just doing the best we think we can do at any given moment. I bet you think you can't go for a pleasant walk around your neighbourhood and look like you belong there? I think you belong nearly everywhere.
