I was going to post this in a different forum category but since I haven’t done an introduction I think this will at least give you a taste.
First, thanks for the positive forum environment. It is enjoyable to read your experiences and discuss productively. Now I will share some thoughts that I feel have some importance to me after a couple weeks of using primarily healing subs/modules.
One quality I like is that of putting one’s own priorities first. I’ve developed this from life experience, though not to the complete extent I desire. And more recently, I believe the healing subs I’m using are contributing, which include Rebirth, Regen, and Elixir.
The main question I have is about which subs are best for resisting others’ pressuring influence and sticking to one’s priorities and not being afraid of unlikely catastrophic consequences, e.g., becoming homeless or a loser for life.
I would say a lot of people I deal with have the “alpha” mindsets of Emperor, Khan, and Commander naturally (technically they may not be true naturals, but they insist on trying to act as such). I like assertiveness of sticking to my own plans confidently (more Ascension-esque?).
So which of the subs are best for resisting IRL bossy Emperors, Khans, Commanders? Perhaps one could do it by becoming one. But that’s not my priority now; my priorities are fitness, ongoing self-employment confidence, later social gregariousness, seduction, and entrepreneurship. Since Ascension is compared to No More Mr. Nice Guy, I’m thinking it might fit what I’m talking about. I could also be totally wrong about the thought of doing life in the order I described and maybe I should be building the empire now; my usual thought is that such will demand more time and stress that could be used for other goals.
I seem to be getting good results with the healing subs. And I don’t intend to change this schedule until a minimum 26 day cycle is complete and possibly another cycle after that, though there is room to slightly alter the schedule. But I’m also curious which subs you guys think is the maximum best for the sticking to one’s own priorities without fear. Emperor possibly, but I don’t know about that especially considering my goals are not so empire-building-oriented right now.
Like, “*****, I’m gonna get my taxes and laundry out of the way to relieve my mind before I worry about your personal goals.” In other words, I don’t seek to order people around but to keep what I care about most the highest priority with least stress and anxiety.
After writing that, I’m like, yeah, maybe I should stay on the emotional healing because I am rather bitter. If you are curious, I’ve spent a lot of years doing things I felt were not the right path for me but I was manipulated by fear. “You will be an unrespectable low-life if you don’t do X.”
Now I know there is such thing as Dragon Reborn and that the recommendation is for doing it like a year, but another thing I’ve learned in life is that it’s often imperative to do what you want now rather than being stuck in “I’m not advanced enough and need to follow the ‘safe’ route that others conscientiously advise.” I believe there’s some kind of balance. Healing, grinding, and leveling up can be good but eventually you have to decide it’s time to head into the dragon’s den.
Interested to hear your thoughts.
