The taste of defeat is bitter, a bitter pill that I have swallowed more than once in my life. But from each defeat, I have learned valuable lessons about strength, resilience, and the true nature of honor.

In battle, there are winners and losers. It is the way of the world; it is the way of warriors like me. And while victory may be sweet, it is in defeat that we truly find out what we are made of.

When Joseph Joestar bested me in our first encounter, I was humiliated beyond measure. To be defeated by a mere human seemed unthinkable to me at the time. But instead of wallowing in self-pity or seeking revenge blindly, I chose to learn from my defeat.

I realized that true strength does not come from always winning but from how one handles setbacks and challenges. It takes courage to admit when you have been beaten and even greater courage to rise up again stronger than before.

Through training and introspection, I honed my skills and embraced humility as a teacher rather than an adversary. Every setback became an opportunity for growth; every defeat a stepping stone towards becoming a better warrior.

And so when faced with Joseph Joestar once again on the battlefield - this time as an honorable opponent who had earned my respect through his own journey - I fought not just for victory but for redemption.

I did not seek vengeance or retribution; instead, I sought to prove myself worthy of being called a warrior in every sense of the word - someone who could face their failures head-on and emerge victorious despite them.

In embracing my defeats as part of my path towards greatness, I found inner peace and clarity unlike anything else. The scars left by past battles serve as reminders not only of where we've been but also where we're headed: towards mastery over ourselves first before mastering our foes on fields drenched with bloodshed.
