The only person who can solve the labyrinth of yourself is you.
This quote from Jeremy Denk got my attention. In some ways, we are all more alike than we think. In other ways, we are such a complex mixture of our genes, experiences, culture, community, when and where we were born and grew up, even our level of maturity.
We are alike in how we are equipped to connect with our world, in our need for family, friends and other humans (even if we’re ‘loners’), in our capacity to learn and take in knowledge, and to pass it on.
And, we are unique in how we react or respond to our world, in our ways of inviting or avoiding contact, protecting ourselves, in our choices to either grow or not grow, and to leave our legacy small. Or large.
When we get stuck emotionally, it’s good to seek help. But whatever help we seek is only as good as the commitment and effort we invest into solving out issues. Nobody will ever know us as well as we know ourselves.
