Unfortunately, none of this is true. "Oh, but if I just"--no. No matter how hard you try, no matter how much you think you accomplish, it will always fail you. Being wealthy is great, until you go on your first spending spree and wind up in endless debt. Being skinny feels awesome, until you realize that you're still not thin enough for society, and you never will be. Buying this product will totally make you happy, until you find yourself addicted to possessions. Never caring enough to hold your friends accountable makes your life far easier, until you watch them go down paths of destruction. Being able to tell your friends you agree with them is wonderful, until you look around to see everything you once stood for laying in ruins. Changing yourself makes you super popular, until your "friends" dump you, and you don't even know who you are anymore. Sticking to your stereotype is easy and makes life fine and dandy, until we all turn into identical robots with no unique creativity. Remembering these rules will make your life amazing, until you hit a bump that your handy rules don't mention the solution to.
Okay, so if all this stuff is worthless, then what now? Our only options are to willingly live a life of lies, or sit around doing nothing, because if we try, we'll only fail? Not at all. Despite the illusions surrounding us, there is one thing that you can count on. It doesn't cheat you, it doesn't leave you, it doesn't lie to you, it doesn't turn on you, it doesn't fail you. Jesus is the only thing in the infinite universe that is 100% reliable, 100% of the time. What better person to handle your life, than the One who made it? Maybe you don't believe me. That's fine by me--but I'd highly encourage you to find out for yourself. God deserves a shot. He won't miss. God loves you more than you can imagine, and He knows exactly what you need and when you need it. He is always with you, and unlike money, popularity, beauty, and possessions, He will never run out. He has an abundant supply of grace and mercy, and even when you slip up, He stands firm. If you already follow God's path, I figure you know that He won't fail you. However I'd encourage you to remind yourself how spectacular God is, and next time you're being pulled in the wrong direction, tell the lies that you're sticking to the Truth.
