Growing Into Rational Power – Retrospective

One of the many Marvel films which is one of my favorite is “Spider-Man into the Spider-Verse” for various reasons. Critics will say otherwise, but fiction is the most relative forms of storytelling anyone can relate to. The reason is because it’s fiction. Taking a stab at fiction writing in The Rideshare Chronicles has made me understand why. Now that you understand my logic, let me go back to the reason why this animated movie is my favorite. We all identify Spider-Man as the one and only. but Miles Morales is just part of a contradiction to the one and only Spider-Man as an alternate universe version of Peter Parker comes into the picture along the various versions like Gwen, Peni, Peter Porker, and Spider-Man Noir all with a different back story, but the same purpose. With the ending message that anyone can wear the mask, which although we don’t come from alternate universes, we all came from a different backstory some with a similar purpose. In hindsight, working together and learning from one another, could make the the change we feel hopeless in seeing, can ultimately become a reality.

There are many that will take my journey as me trying to prove a biased point without taking any interest of reading the piece of literature that I wrote. I can’t blame them. After all, we all have read pieces that force a bias point of view to the reader. In the intent to question my own purpose I’ve also had close friends say “I can’t believe people listen to your psycho Babel” which I take no offense. It doesn’t hurt me at all. It evoked empathy as this is proof that a glimmer of hope I saw in them vanish through adversity. I realize that narcissism is the way we as society have been conditioned to turn to in order to protect our emotional wellbeing. Contrary to what they believe I perceive them as, my changed state of mind makes me see the power they possess is being put to waste in being part of the wedge between the change we want in a world that needs it the most. My book talks about my journey and the domino effects and the ripples others pains and adversity has presented in their lives that has affected mine. Truth is we all have an effect on one another. If you reflect a time where you were wronged where someone could have stopped or prevented it from unfolding, you also will recall the iconic deflective statement “there’s nothing I could have done” which might not prove true in a bigger scale, but false in a smaller one. That if we humble ourselves and stop putting our defenses up, would realize in adversity, we are never alone. We might come from different origins, but some of us if not all of us share the same pain. Which if you truly think about takes the “we are in it together” for a whole other level.

Today’s author interview for a local publication made me realize something that after hearing every other persons backstory and how they came to success brought out one important similarity, they all possessed humbled intent. Knowing some of them pre journey and being blessed to meet them post-journey not even realizing their adversity shed something that I realized we all shared, coming to terms with adversity within ourselves. We all struggled through knowing ourselves as the perceptions we saw for ourselves contradicted what life threw at us. Another thing we all did is we stopped living g in our past and the perceptions that unfolded our current situations and truly started playing the cards we were dealt. One of the most inspiring stories was a classmate who ended up being an amputee which resulted him losing both legs and the life he made from himself post journey. I always said that as long as I was mobile I’d be fine. Which makes me look up to him as a person for beating the ultimate odds and fighting the big fight. We always take for granted things until their gone. But it’s okay, it’s human nature. We always have a choice in life. It’s up to the person themselves to make the choices for themselves. It’s not easy I know this. But it’s worth it cause your worth it. I get a lot of criticism about my positive outlook. I can give two shits. Those who see it that way are the real pessimist in this world. Because if you think any form of positivity that people have that doesn’t fit your standards says that maybe your the toxic person. That maybe just maybe you might be a narcissist.
