If I just do my thing and you do yours we stand in danger of losing each others
I am not in this world to live up to your expectations;
But I am in this world to confirm you as a unique human being.
And to be confirmed by you.
We are fully ourselves only in relations to each other;
The “I” detached from a “You” disintegrates
I do not find you by Chance;
I find you by an active life of reaching out.
Rather than passively letting things happen to me,
I can act intentionally to make them happen
I must begin with myself, true;
But I must not end with myself;
The truth begins with two.
