We like to project images of ourselves onto others without seeing ourselves as the images we project.

We like to project false pride onto ourselves as if anyone really cared.

If only we realized that we needed to care about how we project anything onto anyone because we need to learn to care about ourselves.

We need to become real with ourselves and see ourselves for who we have been and what we have become.

You see becoming real to ourselves would mean we’d have to separate ourselves from the images we project onto others.

And we’d have to give up the projection of false pride.

Which ain’t worth a damn anyway!

Why can’t we just be ourselves?

Projection takes two, rewrite and project you!

For real!
