I can’t really get at a convincing definition.
What’s the need for self control? How can you do something by controlling yourself, and how can you do something without controlling yourself?
I don’t get it. Why would someone do something they don’t want to do?
I think I lack self control. Something keeps pushing me from the inside. I find myself doing things I don’t want to. That looks tricky, we only do things we enjoy. Those we don’t like, we only do them if forced.
But there are some special scenarios where we choose to do things we don’t like, due to some viable reasons. Some for money, some for glory, others for fame.
But I like those who do things they don’t like for the future. Those who fight for a future they have no idea how it will look like. Some don’t even know whether they’ll reach the future, but because of the love they have for humanity and future generations, they keep on fighting.
Self control is a necessity in this struggle. In this world of troubles and miseries with sorrow. Most of them find temporary pleasures in quick cash, thus they abandon the fight and instead, they get swallowed by the fears and worries of this world. Without self control, many end up running after fame and glory.
I wanted to start here, at the top. Remember we are still talking about war. And one of the things we need in a war without direction. We need self control. Even though I don’t really understand what self control.
Next we’ll look into another necessity for war. This struggle is complicated. Jungled and inter twined with various ideas and goals. I hope we will find a common thread to unite us all.
