  "Your problem is, you're too sensitive..."
"Your problem is, you're too tough..."
"Your problem is you try too hard..."
"Your problem is, you don't try enough..."

I think I'm going crazy!
Do you want to come along?
Everything is getting hazy.
They tell me, "Get weak, then you'll be strong."

Everybody has their way,
Of beating pathways to my door.
Trying to make me feel o.k. (their way)
They're always telling me, "One thing more..."

Today I'll try something different,
So my friends will really think me odd.
I won't ask them again for direction.
I'll find my direction with God!

Hello, Alice, So do you use a holy book to ask God for direction, or use meditation/prayer? Something tells me that your friends would not find it the least bit odd for YOU to find your direction in God, whether or not they do so themselves. As long as you don't turn to the tabloids, I suspect you're are more solid footing than many. Blessed be.

Funny how we always want to put the blame on others rather than look at ourselves. Thanks for sharing.
