365 Days Writing Prompt Challenge: Day 107

107. Puzzles:

Puzzles are just like mind-games. They are frustrating, difficult to solve and you’re never really sure you have the right answer.

I’ve never been one for playing games. I’m a straight-up kind of girl who appreciates the person I like being the same. Unfortunately, I always choose the opposite type of person. I’m not sure if it’s because despite it pissing me off, I like the challenge or if it’s because I have some sort of built-in radar that either locates these people or attracts them to me. Whatever the case, it makes for a very stressful life.

Funnily enough, I’ve been told a few times that I’m quite the puzzle. One man even went so far as to use the word, ‘enigma.’ I don’t think I can take his opinion seriously though because he’s known in my hometown for being completely crazy. I was also once told by a teacher that he couldn’t work me out. At the time, I took it as an insult. I found out later it was a compliment.

Maybe everything in life is a puzzle, but it just so happens that everyone looks at it differently and some pieces are easier to fit in than others. I’m still trying to work it out.
