The biggest mistakes I’ve made in my life
1. Thinking I can do it on my own — constraining my possibilities to only the horizon I could see, not the further horizons that others could see for me— then retreating into flagellation when I discover I am weaker than I thought. Boy and the Beast covers the role of teacher, and the need for a companion. One to expand your horizons, and one to prevent you from harming yourself and others.
2. Not acting on my conscience out of a fear of hurting others — allowing myself to be ruled by the whims of compassion tyrants, silencing my voice and strength, and keeping everyone victims at another’s expense. Anthem of the Heart covers this in great detail, those who wish for truth and light, must be willing to hurt and be hurt by others in truths pursuit.
