Self-discovery sounds like a journey one could take or themselves. Self-discovery does not involve just one person, no, it involves a handful. A handful could depend on the type of person one is. Either introvert, or extrovert, one depends on another for help in self-discovery.

It may take years, or even a life time to figure out what one’s life purpose truly means, but when life comes full circle, and the story reaches the finale page, one will finally realize what their purpose was for. Taking a glance into the lives of main protagonists’ help understand the self-realization from the view of a young teenager becoming a woman. Though she faces hardships, she is able to overcome such obstacles with the help of not only family, but a friend. Notice the word friend; not plural.

Many in this life time come and go and only a handful will stay beside you. They may be considered best friends, but one will overcome all and seem to be closer than anyone. A famous line says, “the blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the wombs.” A line like this can be interpreted as a way of saying one who met by chance can have a stronger bond than a family member.

One thing every person should remember is that they are never alone. No matter how hard life may seem, there is always someone who will root for them, and will stick besides them till the end. One is never truly alone in an extravagant world, and although it may take some time to fine someone, or something that gives a hopeful outlook into life, most can contribute that the wait for such a thing is well worth it.
