The last three days have been about empowering us as individuals. Tackling things we fear physically, tackling things we fear emotionally, and turning that ownership into self-actualization. “NO WRONG ANSWERS!” and “Just say WHAT YOUR HEART AND MIND NEEDS TO SAY.” These are calls to action for an individualist mandate, where we don’t answer to outside forces and we’ve conquered our own fears.
Then we have @maddyxxx openly telling us all groups are no replacement for committing to self-actualization. It reminds me of what he and I discussed at Seven Grand: in the end, we all stand alone.
A lot of us have been eager for answers, direction, a stance to take, and a side to pick. (I’ve certainly done it.) Are we slowly being taught that those paradigms don’t matter? That we should each be thinking in terms of the individual “I” — and how we can each manifest our own wants and desires — and less about any group, no matter what side of which fence it’s on?
I said “made ME this way” you fucking goofball. This is about ME, not US. You, not groups.
Each of us as individuals. Not groups. A one-off lesson, or something more?August 11, 2017 at 3:57 pm #22391superstarParticipant
@bcbishop the idea being that we, as individuals, made ourselves into the versions of us we are. And, we can “unmake” ourselves, for better or worse?August 11, 2017 at 5:52 pm #22403MarandaParticipant
Periscoping at 2 am is hard and I think I missed the “what are you going to DO” part so I’m going to clarify.
1) I will forgive myself when I fail at being a good person, and do better next time.
2) I will continue to take more chances and say “yes” more often.August 11, 2017 at 5:53 pm #22404Lawrence MeyersParticipant
We’ve been told this from the start. Ouroboros. Plato’s Cave.
It is, and always will be, you. Me. Bryan. Each of us and each of us alone are responsible for ourselves, our life trajectory, our success, our failure, and where we go next.
As some of you may have heard, we are NOT products of our past, pushing us forward into our future.
There is a future version of each of us pulling us towards our future selves.
THAT is the voice to listen to, not the voices telling us we are failures.August 11, 2017 at 6:08 pm #22408ShaunParticipant
