    The thing is, without getting a hold of your own view of life, you aren't going anywhere, so, even if you have to keep burying the words into your mind all the time, that's probably much better than not knowing those words at all.

    In a way, you can say we have got to be the protagonist in our own story. No matter how many times we get struck down, we have to keep standing up back.
    What an irony. We don't even have any supporting cast or antagonist for real out there. It's a story of one's own, decided solely by he himself.
    But we also have to consider what kind of strength we want.. I mean kings, dictators, and such are strong people but what they're trying to do is just... *wry smile*
    Yes, I am trying to do something here, but as long as what I am trying to do is for the sake for only myself, I don't want that kind of strength. That's why I said I'm not strong enough. I'm still pretty much an egoist and even though I'm trying to be considerate of others, there are times when I just lose to my ego.
    I don't really need an antagonist in my life. As some stories have taught me, a man's biggest enemy is himself. I am already complicated enough to handle without the antagonist to make things worse.

    I'm not telling you to leave, but if you really hate serious discussions, maybe this is not place you should go to.

    Now, what word were we saying when a guy does exactly opposite of that?

    I see your point. That kind of empathic bond isn't everlasting, though. It withers away by time. Whether you revitalize it through your resolve or let it be replaced by your more selfish desires is up to you.
    As long as the concept of winning exists, so will the concept of losing. The sole way to escape that cycle is to end the battle altogether, which I believe is nothing but a divine being's capability.
    In a way, I have come to think I will end up dying anywhere on the path to such highness, so, I shall still keep going even when I know I'm not going to make it.

    Have you read Plato's Allegory of the Cave? I suggest you try it if you haven't. That may help you impersonate both your self and your ego in some way.

    Uh, I don't know the word in English (I can only thought of "low self-esteem" which doesn't sound right for some reasons), but Indonesian has a word for that.

    I am somehow reminded again of the words: You will gain something and lose something else with every choices you make. It really is unavoidable. Such is the consequences of free will.
    And yeah, we'll never make it into a perfect being in this world, but at least we try as long as we live.
    Not actually read it, but I know the summary. Actually, my problem with my ego (ego as in egoism, not ego as in the aspect of consciousness) is like letting go of the habit you've had since you're kid, you know? It's already in my subconsciousness, and it's hard (near impossible, really, or actually... impossible?) to control subconsciousness!

    Um, I don't expect to find a Turkish word to describe it, either. We don't have a ton of words explaining psychological things or so.

    Nice words. With one side shimmering with sun light, the other will be left in the shadow. Those are created by the forks in the roads. There is sort of a balance to it, which is actually a valuable thing for us humans to keep alive.
    And vice versa. We live as long as we try.

    I'd say you are being a bit too much brutally honest towards yourself here. You seem to place your awareness at the back of your mind so that it'll constantly keep nagging at you, but in reality, it's only when you learn how to cast aside that mechanism every once in a while, you will feel the tension ceasing. Otherwise, it'll end up draining your energy, and faith altogether.
    Confronting your subconsciousness is futile. It's like battling out your mirrored image from a past time. No matter what the result is, you will definitely end up feeling like the losing side after a while.
    Ideas will not bed right away after you shape them up. It takes time. It takes massive time. Therefore, the younger you get control over yourself, the better.
    Though it may seem so, that's not a shallow form of optimism. What I'm stating here is attached to realism itself.

    Narcissism can be assimilated to egocentrism. So altruistic is a valid antonym in this specific case.

    However, since you're talking about narcissism as an excessive love brought to the self-image, the opposite would be the lack of self-esteem or maybe self-loathing.

    You have summed it up very nicely.
    My egocentric attitude has also been a problem, but it's a whole different debate. In this specific case, self-loathing may be suitable.

    Hello (=
    There is a good chance that you are the first person in twenty-odd days to ask this question

    Nice to meet you, too, matzik. You can call me whatever you wish to.
    Samples are below:
    Assign a code letter H, just use consonants hktkn (not convenient, though), vice versa aueie (um, not ideal), Haku as an abbrevation..
    That's all I can come up with right now. If I had the slightest of good taste in picking good nicknames, my nick would be a lot more cooler, don't you think so
