You’re going to pay a price for everything you do and everything you don’t do. You don’t get to choose to not pay a price. You get to choose which poison you’re going to take. That’s it.

– Jordan Peterson

The game I chose to play

Every journey, as it was a story, has its heroes and villains, its triumphs and downfalls. There is a price for facing any of those and I’ve seen it all during this expedition. I chose to tell this story in a way not to make it profitable to me, but in a way to tell anyone willing to listen before taking a similar challenge. There is a price for everything, and sometimes you have to be willing to take the price, or it will take you.

Before this expedition, I was in position without any doors, but it is not like I never tried to find them. Everything burned and failed. I lacked the will to execute the plan to the end, I felt unworthy and too weak. The only possible solution left to me was to strike the problem to its core. Try to roll the same rock to the same mountain where I failed before.

As far as I remember, I never was the same after failing my summit in 2016. Though back then, I thought I was doing the same thing I think I’m doing now, but too many things collapsed on me and I got back with fatal psychological wounds. I started drinking even more, to the point where I had to run from everybody just to stay alive. At the start, it didn’t help much either, but slowly I started to build myself back, not even knowing for what purpose. In the end, it didn’t matter much as I was not ready to face anything monstrous yet. All that counted was every step I make toward somewhere more comfortable than I am at now.

Slowly I regained my confidence and once I was able to see again, making this trip to Sakartvelo(Georgia) seemed like the only possible cure left to me. So I started to work even harder, to prepare myself facing whatever I might face this time. I was hoping that if I could face the same dragon and defeat it, I might even be able to take some of its gold.

So far I faced many hardships on this trip, but apparently, I’m not sure if I was prepared for what is to come at this stage. Ironically, it was to come only after I rolled the rock to the top of the mountain. After all, even when the dragon is defeated there is still a big price to pay. The whole game is poisonous.
