You are never just you.
You come into being by what’s around you.
By experiencing the sun, the trees, the streets, the birds, the people, you come alive.
You are not, when there is nothing else but you.
You are you because of the relationships you form. Not just with people. You have a relationship with your computer, your chair, the subway, and each bite of food you take.
That’s why it’s never about the other thing, person, or event. But about how you relate to it.
The quality of those relationships makes the quality of your life.
