Women will claim that men are jerks and all they enjoy is playing with their hearts. Men, who seem to be less in tune with their feelings would also make a similar claim, but stated slightly differently, “girls just mess with my mind.” What is really going on? Who is messing with who? Maybe its not the one messing with the other. Perhaps it is just ourselves. Perhaps we are the ones that set our expectations. We are the ones that mess with our own minds. We are the ones that let ourselves take the risks, expecting the very best and only finding mediocrity at the most. It is a part of life. And the climax of our lives is when we have overcome the mediocrity and found that one joy and exception.
