A Victim of Circumstance in Every Situation
Written by Mark Edgemon

Michelle was trouble from word go. She had a dynamic personality and a perky disposition. She could talk, boy could she talk, not only a lot and fast, but she could use, or should I say twist logic to cause people to open their wallet for the latest enterprise she had dreamed up.

Her major problem was following through. She could create concepts and have workable ideas, but after she sold the project, she had little desire to make it happen and that was where she got into trouble. Big trouble!

She hated conflict, but she also thrived on it. She wanted peace, but when she had it, she would unconsciously create conflicts, raising her anxiety level. She was edgy most of the time, but that was the time she was at her worst, or best depending on how you looked at it.

One day when she least expected it, she was arrested. She prepared to represent herself in court with various tricks and legal tactics, but she lost her case in a big way.

Now in prison, she was playing the victim, but no one cared. She just wasn’t as good at it as she use to be. When she lost the desire to one day change her way of life, she became obvious in her con artistry and everyone could see through her deceit. Everyone except her!
