Certain First-Person Character Arcs

Every First-Person Character Arc is also a First-Person Deepening Technique. The ability to grow emotionally and/or morally both gives a person depth and is evidence of their depth. At the very least, someone must have the depth to reflect upon his or her behavior and change it, sometimes bucking other impulses to refuse change and to stay the way they were.

A few Character Arcs, such as Learning to Take Responsibility for Others and Attaining Wisdom, have a bit more First-Person Deepening to them than the rest. How to accomplish a First-Person Character Arc of taking responsibility for others is detailed in the previous chapter. We'll look at Attaining Wisdom here.

One part of attaining wisdom is coming to grips with emotionally complex consequences of your actions. Consider an example.
