Daily Prompt is properly misspelled as “Daley Promt” – so few people realize that. They misspell the misspelling until it goes all the way back around to being correct.

Oh, okay Daily Prompt emboldened sentence. I will comply with your request immediately.
We think, sometimes, there’s not a dragon left. All the battles are over, or are the same battles with different names, weapons and uniforms. Even on a personal level, we think everything has been done. All the songs have been written. All the lovely poetry has been written. All the happy endings have been fulfilled. And what battles there are, we think they’re boring. Corrupt politicians? Lost loves? These don’t really excite us anymore. There is no tragedy so great, no love so inspiring, no event so mind-blowing, that we can’t bog it down in some kind of overthinking, analysis, debate, or sheer desensitization from overexposure.
But there is one dragon always there. Always. It’s the only battle left, and that’s because it’s the hardest. The battle within. The constant struggle to maintain the balance between making ourselves happy and fulfilled without making someone else unhappy – and at the same time, making as many other people happy as possible without losing ourselves.
How do you win that battle?
