We all start with nothing.
When the game starts, all you have is yourself. From here, it is up to you what you will do. As the days for us go by like days in Majora's Mask, you decide whether you are going to be one step closer to becoming who you are meant to be in your story or are you going to let another cycle of the clock be meaningless. Will you continue to get caught up with the trivial side missions in life that just waste your precious time until the clock runs out? Or will you do something with it? That is just a part of the game that all of us play. What are we going to do? How do we get there? And what is it that we truly want?
But like in a videogame, there is struggle. Repeated and endless battles until you get to the end. This repetition of what to expect is just a test to your persistence of what you want your life to be. However, there is also a benefit from that countless struggle because the more you are beaten the better at the game you will become. Every experience you have will help to improve your ability to navigate through the world. You will find yourself leveling up your skills to the point where holding a conversation becomes effortless, how making friends and connections help you unlock other areas in your life that you would have had harder access to, and how the rewards that you get from putting in the work will become bigger and better. Just like a videogame. The game and its struggle will always be there as time continues to pass you by. But the best way to win at it is to learn how to move within it.
Moves are what every game is at its core—a calculation of what to do, when to do it, and how it affects the world around you. For a player to succeed, knowing “how to move” is essential in any game you will ever play, even the dating game.
