You can relate yourself to people and things in your immediate daily surroundings in a great variety of ways. Your problem, as an individual, is to find the best way for you to exteriorize and prove to others that which you essentially are as an individual — your true self.
It is only in crises that we can know the real self of our best friend or associate. But we actually come to know this self not so much by what the person achieves outwardly as by the way he approaches an emergency, by the quality of his response to lack and defeat.
Everyone is born to live the truth one is. Alas, often one finds oneself surrounded by social lies and personal fallacies. As a person matures under such conditions, not realizing what he is, the person will not know his real contribution to society.
