There are many people who have a difficult relationship with themselves, whether that be with their health, their body, or their self-image. Sometimes it’s the result of circumstances or an unhealthy relationship. Sometimes it’s just that the person is not seeing himself or herself clearly.
The first time I saw my own image as someone who had to be in a relationship with someone, it was extremely difficult because I never had an interest in having a relationship with anyone. I figured I was just the kind of person who would only date attractive people, and I had a lot of good, supportive friends. But I did have an interest in other people, and in the end I found that a relationship with myself would only push me further away from them.
The self-awareness that leads to self-awareness is the awareness of one’s own biases, desires, and self-deceptions. When we don’t look at ourselves, we also don’t see things as we see them, which is why we tend to experience an adversarial relationship with self.
The problem with adversarial relationships is that when we choose them they usually come to an abrupt end. The problem with adversarial relationships is that they can lead to self-harm, depression, etc. when they end. Self-harm is when we harm ourselves when we feel we have no choice. Depression is when we feel we have no one to blame but ourselves.
The story trailer for Deathloop shows a self-aware Colt in the midst of a self-harm episode. As the trailer shows, his self-awareness is what’s keeping him from doing the harm. A self-aware person is able to choose to change or end an adversarial relationship without harming themselves, which is why a self-aware character is the best choice for us to be.
The thing is, there is no such thing as an adversarial relationship. It can be a good or bad relationship, but it is never going to be adversarial. So I guess what I’m saying is there are times when a relationship is adversarial and it’s okay to end it. Some people can’t handle the feeling of hurting themselves or the pain and suffering it causes.
But I would argue that having a relationship that’s adversarial is not a good thing. And to get to this point I would have to point out that every time we start a story, we end up in a very adversarial relationship with our main characters for a very large amount of time. Like most of the time we’re all trying to save the world, or something, and we all want to keep the characters and people around them alive.
I think in the beginning and throughout our story of our main characters, we are all trying to save the world, or if not that, at least to fix the world. And since our main characters are all so very different (even the same person at one point), it can be really hard to see that we are all trying to fix the world at the same time. But I disagree.
If you are a person who is trying to fix the world, or at least to make the world better, then that is exactly what you are doing, but if you only think of yourself as a character trying to fix the world, then you are actually just trying to make the world better.
The world may not be in much better shape than it was before, but what we are doing is trying to make it better. We are making it better for the people who can’t live without it. We are making it better for the people who are suffering the most. We are making it better for the people who are being screwed by the world and the people who have to live with it.
