My purpose with this post is not to summarize the lecture by Richard Harvey; even so, I’d like to share my personal awareness about relationships and their borders.
Recently, it gradually dawned on me that I didn’t know who I am. Obviously, I know that I have two hands with their eight fingers and two thumbs. However, I’m very conscious that I’m changing every day. For example, today I’m growing a beard, but tomorrow, it’s very likely that I’ll shave my head. Joking aside, not only did I fail to understand myself, but also I drowned out my own inner voice.
But as for YOU, I have the perception that YOU are like a strong desire, which I hate and I love at the same time. YOU have isolated your life behind a mask, which provides an easy interaction with other people, although too aseptic to be true or warm. Not only do YOU represent a partner or a friend, but YOU are my eyes and a mirror in which to reflect.
To conclude this sermon, WE have never had it so good and WE are being made conscious that WE need to make this world a better place for everyone. Therefore, I’d like to believe that together WE can substitute all our numerous imperfections with LOVE (I’m being too flower-power) and iron happily that mountain of costumes that WE don’t know where to hide.
