My chips were disappearing rather quickly.
It was a Texas Hold 'Em lesson, designed to prepare me to be a "pit boss" at our service club's annual poker tournament. And I am a horrible poker player. It's not that I can't get a grasp of the game, but that I have no "poker face."
They even dubbed my reaction to a bad hand the "poker pout." I am so used to wearing my heart on my sleeve, so to speak, that I found it very difficult to keep an emotionless expression, and be practiced with my actions as to betray nothing.
I'm a decent actress; I could have done better. I just don't like having to be so, to be so, blah. Even for a game. Poker is probably not for me. Not only do I have an expressive face, but my mind has difficulty with strategy based probability-type games (I don't do well with chess or Stratego either). And that's okay.
I spent a good part of my life comparing myself to other people and wishing to be more accomplished. I've learned that not only do I not have to be good at everything, I'm not expected to be, and life is a lot easier when I spend time doing things that I excel at and enjoy. MMQZQMEWJQ8F
What are you good at? And what are you trying to do that isn't a good fit for you?
