The Truman Show

"We accept the reality of the world with which we are presented, it's as simple as that." - The Truman Show

Is life a big joke, a Truman show on repeat? Do we do as we are told because it is politically correct or do we risk the perfectly manicured lawn and 2.5 kids for a chance at a new reality show? If we never took a gamble would life be as enjoyable? Sometimes the unexpected turns out to be the newest twist, but we have a choice to opt out and continue with the mundane.
Strangers become friends and then strangers again. If you love someone and one day wake up and notice the feeling isn't mutual do you change your perspective and commit yourself deeper to the one true love or do you bitch and moan and never agree that the falling out was the result of both parties losing sight of the end goal?
I am the star not a supporting part. Those around me believe in me and my objectives and those that don't understand will be written out of the script.
With each new experience and boundary broken I wonder which life will fit me better. I've become use to a life that for many is a dream come true, but behind the scenes is a circus of revolving characters. Then I was given a glimpse at a new ideal, one that up until now seemed out of place and reach, but once inside was magical. But perfection is never real, the honeymoon will end one day and life will go on so what's to say that in three years I won't be bored by this existence?
