I'm Playing for Keeps

(First and foremost, this post is not mine. It's written by Rob Hill, Sr and I just saw this on Vern Enciso's Instagram feed. This post sums up everything I've been feeling for weeks and maybe, in some way, you can relate too. I believe that every awesome post deserves to be repost-ed (is there such a word like this? lol) and I really wanna share it with you guys. Hope you like it.)

"Crazy how life works. 
The best people get hit with the worst of times. 
The genuine hearts are the first to be used and taken for granted. 
And, those with sincere intentions are pushed off as too good to be true. 
We're stuck in a game where "winning" gets you nowhere. 
We have inconsistent people expecting consistency.
Liars complaining that nobody is true
and fakes demanding loyalty. 
Everybody's asking for Love, 
but only a few are walking in it. 
For me, the game got old two disappointments ago,
and I refuse to cheat my future worrying about things I can't change from my past.

So today, in the present, I offer three promises: 
I'll trust you until you show me that I can't. 
I'll be consistent as your efforts inspire me to be. 
And I'll honor your time with the same respect I give my own. 
No games. No gimmicks. No guile. 
If you can appreciate this, I can build with you; 
if not, I have no time for you. 
I've been through too much to play the same old game, 
just to keep getting the same draining results. 
I want more. I deserve more! 
So I'm holding out until I get it,  
because the next time I play, I'm playing for keeps." (-@RobHillSr)
