Push and Pull

It’s funny how so many people live life through a game of tug of war. One person pulls, and the other slackens. The other person pulls and this person slackens. If both people pull, then no one gets anything. If no one pulls, then there is no point in the game. 

Yeah, I don’t play that game anymore. I’m into a different kind of game now, a building game. One where when I put down a brick, you put one down as well. Not only that, but you add another brick. You add one, not so you can be above me, not so you can have more, but so that you can help me strengthen the structure that we’re both standing on. If I lose, so you do. If you win, so do I. Every move is structured so that the team benefits. 

I’m cutting people out of my life that only seem to put in when I withdraw; only pull so I have to slacken. I’m distancing myself from people who are still trying to play tug of war when I’m trying to build my structure. I’m no longer in the horizontal way of thinking, I’m too busy going vertical.
