Some things have to be rethought and then an adjustment made for what wasn't your fault or for what needs special attention, before you get sucked under. God will be there for you, others friends and relatives too, but basically only you, can save you. As I sat here pondering over my own problems, I understand why people have problems. They don't come much worse than mine, unless it is a health issue. Life can be a mean experience at times. If you can't adapt, you may perish. Life doesn't come with a God signed guarantee. Me, I don't want to perish so I handle it so that I can get some sunshine instead of sitting around with my head in a hole all the time. I got an attitude on life, a strong mean attitude. If I see someone else smiling and being happy, I tell myself, "I want that too, it seems like fun." Then I get to work mentally and if necessary, physically. Failure isn't an option in my attitude, it's an occupational hazard that just happens at times. One positive way to handle failure is, not to beat yourself up when you fail. Why fail and take a personal butt beating too? When I was a young negative man 30 some years back, I found out about the power of positive thinking. I told myself, "I like that and I want it." The rest is history. I haven't been depressed a day since. Oh, I still feel bad at times but I never ever get depressed. I powered up on the energy foods and herbs for physical and mental health, then adjusted my attitude positively. I feel good because I want to feel good. Not because my life is going all good. It's easy to survive when all the pieces of the puzzle fits, but can you make it when they don't?

This game of life doesn't come with a guarantee,
nothing, I mean nothing in life comes free.
There's a price to pay for everything worthwhile,
for man, boy, woman and child.
No one is exempt from pain and suffering,
so it is wise to make an adjustment offering.
One that will suite you in understanding,
not others selfish don't know what's
happening demanding.

Others will beat you because they don't understand you.
When in reality, we're all complex individuals, especially when sad and blue. No one can see into your heart and soul, like your sight of vision in stroll. When you take that long walk to get yourself together, you're viewing from the inside out. Others are viewing from the outside in route. They're going to miss something important about your personal dilemma. Probably the most important cause of your trauma.

Suppose your parents abused you bad as a child.
Beat you and then left you in the wild.
Then you grew up running with the wolfs for survival,
instead of hanging with the sheep in primal.
All of a sudden you're released into civilization,
not being accustomed to it's normal relation.
You're just barely hanging in with the natives,
being shunned by other relatives.
A real Tarzan or crococdile Dundee,
rising early in the morning swinging from a tree.
Preying on all the neighborhood rabbits,
with your wild eating habits.

They will want to lock you up,
forget understanding why you're wildly corrupt.
You might be labeled a wild man in an asphalt jungle,
which will only add to your civilized struggle.
"He eats all the neighborhood rabbits,
I hate his wild habits.
This I know,
he has to go!"

But you've made your civilized adjustment,
you're not a Jeffrey Dominer in statement.
At least you're not eating others,
and you get along with your sisters and brothers.
You've adjusted to survive,
so on you positively try to thrive.
The important aspect is that you overcame
then lived up to the civilized game.
Regardless of your wild name.

Crocodile Dundee was cheerful in character,
he made his positive adjustment after.
Tarzan almost drove the big city insane,
while he was looking for Jane.
But they both coped positively,
and weren't hostile disrespectively.
Unless you were a crook,
then your behind would
have to cook.

You're living in lifes wild jungle environment,
so there's nothing wrong with a positive adjustment.
One that will guarantee your survival,
without being mean and evil.
There's nothing wrong with making a good plan,
as long as you understand,
your own lifes demand.
