130 hours from beginning of practice, to the end of the successful attempt. This is my greatest accomplishment yet by far, and to say this grind was the most painful and hopeless thing I've ever experienced would be an understatement. I have just done one of the greatest deathless platforming achievements ever, and I seriously couldn't be any happier.
I am now much stronger, and I will not stop here (for Celeste, probably; in general, no).
I am so proud of myself for starting this grind, seeing it through, and never letting up. I spent about the first 80-90 hours just practicing before ever touching the berry, because this chapter is so precise and lengthy; that wasn't easy and took way more discipline than I've had to previously. Good to know that I'm capable of completing some ridiculous long grinds, this definitely won't be the last one or the best one I predict.
Thank you to all those who wished me success, believed in me, and cared about me during this journey.
I've learned a lot from this and will try harder to have a better attitude throughout. Allow yourself to feel the negative feelings, but resist letting them control you. That is what it takes to grow stronger, and what it took for me to overcome this. I did this while offline recording, and during the whole session I scarcely said a word, and just took the painful emotions as they came, and gave little reaction to feeling them. I realized that I was able to deal with the failure without getting tilted, and that realization helped me to relax in the final moments. I knew I would come back stronger and knock it out regardless, even if I died on the final screen.
Thanks again everyone, I feel so grateful for everything that I have. Thank you.
