“You cannot know yourself in the absence of all other human beings. You cannot find out who you are if you do not first discover who you are not. All relationships demonstrate this by acting as your mirrors. All people coming into your life help bring you reflections. They enable you to discover those parts of self that are obscured. This process ultimately reveals the essence of your own soul. You are on a voyage of self-discovery on the choppy ocean of life. And each relationship you magnetize to you is another port of call.
Only by observing the behaviors and emotions of others around you can you then contextualize your own behaviors and emotions. Only by witnessing what you are not can you then decipher that which you are.””
William L. Murtha, in “Dying for a Change”
