Sweeten Those Sour Grapes

Striving to be and have and do.

So much of what I have set my sights on has eluded me.

I have to look closely and see the common thread in all the disappointments.

And that is me.

I don’t know if it’s inherently me that is defective, though that is how it does feel.
It most likely is my approach and delivery.

Always an issue.

Perhaps I don’t really want the things I think I want. So therefore I don’t put out 100% effort.
It could be the classic fear of failure, again causing the withholding of effort.

In an attempt to comfort, I try to convince myself that I am better off without it.
Whatever it is.
The job, the car, the body, the beauty, that charming personality, the life.

All that I don’t have.

The thing I need most is acceptance. Not from anyone or anything but myself.
To not only accept but to cherish and savor all that I am, have and do.
