The other person who asks you what you are yourself to is always a measure of yourself.

“The Sickness Unto Death”, Kierkegaard



There’s a person you care about. You think what he/she will think of if you do this. When did you meet him/her? How did your meeting him/her change yourself? When you think about who you are, if you imagine your life as a kind of ghost leg, your life will look different, not imagine it as a straight line and looking for something that does not change.
