Day 10: Self Discovery – What is Identity?
In a monomyth, the hero begins in the ordinary world, and receives a call to enter an unknown world of strange powers and events. The hero who accepts the call to enter this strange world must face tasks and trials, either alone or with assistance. In the most intense versions of the narrative, the hero must survive a severe challenge, often with help. If the hero survives, he may achieve a great gift or “boon.” The hero must then decide whether to return to the ordinary world with this boon. If the hero does decide to return, he or she often faces challenges on the return journey. If the hero returns successfully, the boon or gift may be used to improve the world.

As I was saying, it has less to do with anything being wrong with the world – that’s always been broken, or working as intended – and more to do with you creating your place as a man. Not taking your place (as in actually taking from someone else or being handed a ‘birthright’) that’s for the ‘elite’. You, you’re going to have to prove your own value and develop your own self-worth, and once you believe it and act in it, then others will allow you to have it.
