Society accepts and even reveres ‘the win at all cost’ mentality as being necessary for ones success in life.

When fighting for something that one truly believes belongs to them, ‘the win at all cost’ outlook will make that person stronger. If the attempt is successful, he or she will enjoy tremendous satisfaction. If the endeavor had a negative outcome, one will feel defeated for a while, but eventually, feeling better for not just giving up without trying to retrieve what was lost.  Time goes by and life goes on.

The satisfaction felt by the individual that succeeded using ‘the win at all cost’ attitude towards acquiring something that belongs to someone else or to take advantage from an unguarded opportunity will be empty. Even if strategy replications keep bringing on triumphs, one’s head on a pillow at night can be showered by starry nights or haunted by deformed imagery, most likely reflecting the harvest of the day.

“I will not make you dependent on me.  My approach is to find alternative options under a circumstance and open new doors into a resolution of old problems. Clear the docket so you can see things from other angles as you absorb other possibilities. In time, after you had conquered your needs, you will be able to replace what does not work, accept what you cannot change, and accomplish what you want.”

If my writing helped or entertained you in any way, please consider a donation to assist Edge of Humanity Magazine to continue to provide neutral, outside of the box content.


Neutrality comes with the price of being disconnected. Society is composed of like-minded people; teal lovers search for bluish-green connections, and the burnt sienna worshippers choose to navigate a path that’s deep reddish brown. Embracing the color wheel will yield richer exposure and isolation.
There is no glory in neutrality.
Edge of Humanity Magazine has no religious, political, financial,  or social affiliations.

Thank you.
