    • I have a brave attitude towards surpassing my existing self and being strongly aware of my obligations and demands towards myself, as stated in Noblesse Oblige.
      • Ultimately, this is what makes me feel fulfilled in life, so I want to be aware of it and internalize it.
    • On the other hand, I also support models of relative/subjective happiness such as Relativism, Buddhism, Yuishiki, and Knowing What is Enough.
    • I am trying to reconcile the conflict between these two values and find a balance within myself.
