We all play games. We do not all play the same games.
Some play the status game, of "who's higher". Others the "who's right" game. Still others the "protect myself at all costs" game. Or the "please like me" game.
None of the games allows us to be fully alive in every moment.
There is a meta-game, deceptively dangerous: The game of wanting people to change and play the game you want them to play.
The game of no-game, would be wonderful to reach.
