While I’ve been exploring the left hand path, most of my magic has been directed at my own self improvement. As a side affect, I’ve gained a better understanding of how the human mind works and how I can manipulate it for certain goals. At first I only used it on my own mind. Then I got curious and wanted to know how effective this was on external sources.
There are people around me who I care about that don’t live up to their full potential. They have realistic goals and ambitions, but there’s a collection of terrible choices they commit that keep them in the same place. I tell them how something will go. They don’t listen, leading to me witnessing their downfall, and the cycle repeats. This gets repetitive after awhile and make’s you wish you could plug a controller in their ass and do it right.
Changing someone’s thought pattern’s is a fairly simple task if you know what you’re doing. In fact, I’ve already succeeded in doing so. And they progressed as a result. But that makes me wonder, am I taking away the lessons they’re suppose to learn on their own? Am I handicapping them? Can this become addictive? At what point do you go too far? This is such an easy think to abuse. I don’t know if my old moral values are making me overthink things or if I’m legitimately on the edge of becoming a tyrant.
