Even the best of us get tricked from time to time.
Someone comes along and impresses us with magic.
Later we discover it wasn’t magic, just illusions.
Sometimes the issue isn’t that people were trying to trick us.
We tricked ourselves.
We saw what we wanted to see, regardless of what reality was.
Then, when reality started to creep in, we told ourselves if we held our breath and didn’t feel our feelings and hoped long and hard enough, reality would change.
We don’t have to get mad at ourselves when we get tricked, even if we’ve fooled ourselves.
We need to see and acknowledge the truth and become aware of what reality is.
Don’t let your embarrassment over finding yourself in a bad situation clouds your view of yourself.
Sometimes all we need to do is acknowledge the truth, including the truth about how we feel.
In a few days or a few months, the solution will become clear.
When all the illusions drop away, that’s when the real magic begins.
You’ll be guided along your path.
