Alone at Last
Nothing in the world is single; All things by a law divine In one another's being mingle:— Why not I with thine?
- Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822)

Alone at Last
Inspired by Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822)'s quote, "Nothing in the world is single; All things by a law divine In one another's being mingle:— Why not I with thine?". The titled responsion is
A great many people accept they know themselves, however under 15% are really mindful. Acting naturally focused or having a twisting of what our identity is, transforms us into a casualty of the deceptive self.
The sense of self is you 'I-ness' — it catches your considerations, convictions, recollections, and feelings in any case on the off chance that they are fortunate or unfortunate. Be that as it may, the issue isn't simply the monster, yet the job it plays.
Having no sense of self would be a disaster — we need something to intervene between our wants and our convictions and qualities. Without it, we would get vulnerable or intellectually sick.
The conscience's persistent quest for consideration and force subverts the objective we need to accomplish.
Managing an unfortunate sense of self is depleting.
As we seek to get more extravagant, more brilliant, better, more grounded, or more alluring than others, we are shadowed by a tireless feeling of exhaustion and self-question. You needn't bother with another conscience; you simply should be you.
Our self image likes security, sureness, and reiteration. It causes us to feel good by fortifying a romanticized form of ourselves. In the event that individuals compromise that dream, we transform them into an adversary. That is the reason self image driven individuals participate in consistent battles — they need to ensure the delicate dream of what their identity is.
The interesting part is that we battle to keep a picture of ourselves that nobody becomes tied up with, aside from us.
Your most prominent adversary is your inward discernment, not your self image.
Eruptions of loneliness interrupt thine with mine. What's yours is mine, mine, mine. Creatures of consumption, "mining" resources to be relinquished without concern, consumed by the ego and the exchange of the self for the Platonic groom.
Our self image is an inquisitive beast — most of us don't understand its reality, yet we are under its leniency.
“The ego is the worst confidence trickster we could ever imagine.”
— Dr. Yoav Dattilo
We normally partner the word 'personality' with being presumptuous, glad, or egotistical. In any case, our sense of self is an alternate thing — it amplifies either our best or most noticeably awful side. That is the reason the conscience is the most noticeably awful certainty joke artist: we end purchasing the overstated adaptation of ourselves.
The deceptive self is an enticing fantasy — that's the reason we capitulate to our conscience. We let it hold the reins of our lives with no obstruction.
The personality stows away in the last spot you will actually look: inside itself. Masked as musings or sentiments, your self image deceives you. At the point when you trust you are your personality, you'll successfully keep that deception alive.
At the point when you want to be seen as the sharpest chief, the adored mother, the best mediator, the kindest lady, the most entertaining person, the most inventive writer — fill in the blanks — you permit your self image to dominate. You self-relate to a solitary part of yourself — preserving that ideal picture turns into a desperate issue.
By needing to keep our deceptive self cheerful, not just we place trust on an inconceivable objective yet additionally hurt ourselves as well as other people. Individuals are eager to lie, slaughter, cheat, cover up, or take to ensure their personality limits. On the off chance that somebody scrutinizes that 'flawless side,' they take it personally — they feel their whole character is in danger.
"For what reason is this transpiring? Everybody needs to be with me. For what reason is this individual assaulting me? No one tunes in to me!"
We are self-absorbed — we make every little thing about "me-me-me!" We accept that everything rotates around us. We judge what occurs through a conceited channel.
The mystery of the undesirable inner self is that, however it appears to be a certainty promoter, it makes more mischief. By contrasting ourselves with others, we make self-question. Furthermore, feel frustrated seeking after unlimited desire, we end baffled. By imagining things consistently to go our direction, we become severe and baffled.
The unfortunate personality is a fraud — don't accept your deceptive self is valid.

For Better or for Worse...
Inspired by Charles Dickens (1812-1870)'s quote, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.". The titled responsion is...
What is the tipping point when an ideal becomes an ideology? When the very ideal of marriage becomes an idolized perception of heaven on earth? An accepted proposal with a the wedding day sometime in this future is for sure is this point of no return. The wedding day and bells that ring might signify bliss for some yet fear for others. An amygdala response I fear.
Try, Try Again!
Inspired by John Dewey (1859-1952)'s quote, "Failure is instructive. The person who really thinks learns quite as much from his failures as from his successes". The titled responsion is...
It's a forward motion of the möbius that strips us of our free will and defines our identity. However, the alternative is environmental when, as reality has it, complacency is the "chosen" pathway to prosperity. The ignition, or spark of anticipated action, is a strategy of sorts to game Game theory itself. Mathematically rigorous, cheaters do exist as a percentage of our population and should be viewed as revealing necessities of our collective consciousness. Onward and upward implies transcendence, unless of course you're moving backwards, then, as the dogmas our world demand, it's just the inevitable and evolutionary "dissent" of man towards evil. Romanticism typically advocates for a return to the values and lifestyles of the past. I am a romantic at heart and a technocrat of sorts, combining a poetic love of literature with all the benevolent possibilities Prometheus has to offer. The choice is ours as to how we let technology shapes us, the forme is an imagining of a virtuous life directed by outcomes and the Telos of perfecting a life worth living.
Failure leads to failure, and no one wants to experience that! Failure can have a lot of negative consequences. While you might be able to learn from failures, it is important to keep in mind that the biggest fear for most people is failure themselves. Success and failure are two different things.
Failure leads to frustration. Many leaders allow themselves to become frustrated when things don't go their way and they get disappointed with the outcome. But it is important not to allow yourself to lose hope. Achieving your goals requires that you not get discouraged or get stuck on the negativity around you. Remember that success can happen even if it feels like it will never happen. Failing to acknowledge and learn from your failures will just lead to more dramatic failures.
Failure leads to discouragement. Focusing on your failure is not going to help you improve. You need to move on and look at your strengths. Focusing on your weaknesses is not going to help either, but it will help you learn to become better.
Failure leads to pessimism. If you let this lead to pessimism then you will never reach your goals. Remember that if you do have a bad day then that is OK because tomorrow you will be better than you were the day before.
Failure leads to a loss of momentum. When you start focusing on what went wrong then you lose the energy that you should have. This energy can be used to overcome your challenges instead of becoming stagnant. Failure should not prevent you from moving forward, but rather allow you to look for solutions to your problems. The end goal should be to achieve something great.
Failure leads to isolation. When you have failed you will feel isolated. You may feel that you cannot communicate effectively with anyone else, which leads to lack of social interaction. This can lead to low self esteem, which will make you feel like everyone is against you. There are always going to be those who do not agree with your approach and this can lead you into a cycle of isolation and negativity. If you do not listen to other people who have been through these kinds of things, you will find it hard to continue on.
Failure leads to a feeling of failure. You may start to believe that all of your dreams were a waste because you didn't have the right knowledge or the right person to help you achieve them. This can lead to even further isolation and feelings of failure and you will become resentful.
Failure leads to a feeling of not knowing where you are going. When you fail, it may be that you are headed nowhere. The problem is that you may not know where you are heading because you haven't taken the time to find out.
Failure leads to lack of confidence. When you fail, it is easy to see the problems you were facing and the things that could have been done differently. Your confidence will take a hit and this will lead to an overall decrease in confidence, which can lead to a feeling of lack of confidence.
Failure leads to fear. You may think that you cannot do anything about your problems because you have been failed at the same thing before. You may start to feel as though your problems are impossible to fix and you will be afraid to try again.
Failure leads to a sense of worthlessness. You will begin to feel as though you are just another failure with no chance of success.
It is important to remember that not all failures are bad. Even the worst of them can lead to success.
