i'm going to regret being up this late

nyxwings  asked:

So I reread Son of Batman today... And the baby Goliath scene never ceases to make me tear up. But then something occurred to me, why didn't Damian strike down Goliath as he killed his family? All his other targets and enemies have always fought back, no matter how feeble. Damian can't bring himself to kill someone that isn't hurting him back.

I love the whole “R:SOB” comic especially that issue because it shows that Damian always had some good in him, even before the Batfamliy “Tamed” him (I hate when people refer to it as that)

The way I see it that scene was the straw that broke the camel’s back, Damian has been in a year long journey doing all kind of horrible stuff for TLOS and the Goliath ordeal was the last one and it was just then that it hit him that there was absolutely no reason whatsoever beside “that’s was what I have been told to do” and I guess the realization was too much for him and he just fell and started crying. 

Also not everyone caught the parallels:

It seems to like Damian was projecting himself into Goliath, the things he’s saying here to Goliath seems like things he has most likely heard while growing up with the league so in his mind Goliath is supposed to fight back and continue this killing cycle but of course Goliath just:

Instead he showed him that sometimes even an animal could have more empathy than some humans and you can see in the last panel the mix of regret,shame,guilt and unsureness was too much for Damian that he just couldn’t go through with killing him.

Dear Sam, I'm full of massive regrets. I messed up horribly.... And I can't stop thinking about it lately, it keeps me up at night.. Could mediation help with this?

It might.

What do we do when we screw up really badly?

Well, of course, you hop in your Tardis and go back in time and …. What is that? You don’t have any kind of a time machine?  

Well I guess that means you will just have to deal with it in the present.  This is what we do:  

  • Take responsibility.  You screwed up. Own it. You’re human and human beings are imperfect creatures. We make mistakes. Sometimes big mistakes. Don’t make excuses, don’t blame others, take the consequences with dignity. Pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and say “I screwed it up this time, I won’t next time.”
  • Fix the damage.  Whatever the damage was, do your best to repair it. Not everything can be fixed. Do what can be done. Do it promptly, graciously, freely and without resentment. Sometimes you must ask “what can I do to make this right?”
  • Apologize. An apology must be voluntary.  It must be sincere. It must include a frank, open and honest admission of responsibility. It must be made freely without expectation of anything in return.  Sometimes your apology will not be acknowledged.  Accept this.  The person you wronged owes you nothing.
  • Forgive. Forgive those who you wronged for anything they may have done to contribute to the problem.  Most importantly FORGIVE YOURSELF. Why?  Because your misery benefits no one. It does not benefit those you have wronged nor does it benefit you.  You may be tempted to wallow in self pity.  That is ego.  Forgive, and move on.
  • Learn. The only thing the past is useful for is as a lesson.  Learn from this mistake.  Don’t repeat it. Apologies start to wear thin if the the error is made over and over.
