At times you’ll face situations that don’t really have a clear win. All things come with multiple sides. Good or bad are sometimes grey. All of this comes down to the points of view for those involved. In those times all that you can simply do is your best, with the information that you have up until that point in time. Trust that, and move forward with as much confidence as you can muster. Some days, there are just tough decisions that must be made. They will change you , and may make you stronger if you seek the lessons that they bring.
Your potential is limitless. Often though many take these words as shackles. It’s more about a decision to do what you choose, than living up to what other people expect of you. Understand that you’re already a genius. You’re a living breathing supercomputer, with access to a massive network of information. You can build a road to anything that you want to accomplish. It takes time, but the potential is latent in you. Decide what you want and trust that you are everything that you need to get there. Skills will come with time, but you already are everything that you need.
Friendship is not simply a mirror. It’s more of a balance. Pairings and groups are often archetypal, as humans rely on each other to advance in this world. The challenge lies in finding out which bonds can help us and which bonds will hurt. A few simple steps to make this process easier.
Test the waters. Be patient with people. Don’t jump in head first. All actions are done with a why in mind. Try to find out their why. At times it may simply be that they enjoy doing something. Other times it may be that someone has ulterior motives. Be cautious but remain open.
It’s often hard for us to truly accept and understand our own self worth. We’re born whole, and open. Receptive to everything around us , we soak in information like a sponge. We can adapt and learn anything. Languages, diction, physical abilities. All of these are adopted as simply being natural. It’s like magic really. In our formative years , for many this comes the start of something not so easy to swallow. Our self worth is eroded. Not in its entirety, and not directly, but it’s put to us in the form of limits and doubt. Most times it's a reflection of those around us, putting their own built up doubt upon us. It’s easy to limit another from something that we fear. Some adopt it under the guise of safety but in truth it has little merit in the stories that we have yet to write. Our paths are virtually limitless, and the realm of current societal understanding has only gone so far. Much more is to be done. So in that, take great stock in yourself. Understand that self worth is essential. You’re complete, and you’re becoming more and more each day. Build yourself into the ideal that you seek. You will have nothing to regret once your cycle comes to an end.
In the coming months, I'll be sharing with you words and work related to a series that I'm developing. It's the first of many in the world of Manikk Realm.
It's called Gokiburi and I'm quite happy to let this project grow here.
This story deals with the topics of self worth, friendship, potential ,tough calls, love, family, society, mental health, technological innovation, morality , ambition and death.
Through these twelve branches, this story may grant you a better means to reflect upon yourself.
The stories of Manikk Realm aim to serve as a mirror in which you can grow and learn.
On a journey. Searching for something. Sharing what's found.
