I Was Planning To Become A Loyal Sword: My Journey To Self-Discovery

The Beginning of My Journey

It all started when I was a young boy. I was always fascinated by the stories of knights and their swords. I would spend hours reading books and imagining myself as a brave knight, wielding a sword and fighting for justice.

As I grew older, my fascination with swords only grew stronger. I started practicing with wooden swords and even joined a fencing club. I was determined to become a master swordsman.

The Turning Point

But then, something happened that changed everything. I met a wise old man who taught me the true meaning of being a loyal sword. He told me that being a loyal sword is not just about wielding a weapon, but about being loyal to oneself and one’s values.

At first, I didn’t understand what he meant. But as I listened to him more, I realized that he was right. I had been so focused on becoming a master swordsman that I had forgotten about the importance of being true to myself.

That was the turning point of my journey. I decided to put down my sword and start a new chapter in my life.

Discovering My True Self

It wasn’t easy at first. I had to take a long hard look at myself and figure out what my values were. I started reading books on philosophy and spirituality, and I started practicing meditation and mindfulness.

Slowly but surely, I started discovering my true self. I realized that I was not just a swordsman, but a writer, a musician, and a lover of nature. I started pursuing my other passions and found that they brought me just as much joy and fulfillment as my love for swords.

The Importance of Self-Love

One of the most important lessons I learned on my journey was the importance of self-love. I had spent so much of my life trying to be what others wanted me to be, that I had forgotten to love myself for who I was.

But as I started accepting myself for who I was, flaws and all, I found that I was much happier and more content. I stopped seeking validation from others and started relying on my own inner compass to guide me.

The Journey Continues

My journey is far from over. There are still moments when I feel lost or unsure of myself. But I know that as long as I stay true to myself and my values, I will find my way.

Being a loyal sword is no longer just about wielding a weapon for me. It’s about being loyal to myself and my own path in life. And that, to me, is the true essence of being a loyal sword.


In conclusion, my journey to becoming a loyal sword was not what I expected it to be. But it was a journey that taught me invaluable lessons about self-discovery and self-love. I hope that my story inspires others to embark on their own journey of self-discovery and to stay true to themselves, no matter what challenges they may face.
