Human mirror

A beautiful place not far from Poznan, Poland, a conference, so many people from all over the world…. Some of them I haven’t seen for months but somehow it does not matter. We are talking about essential, sometimes even very private issues  as if we saw each other yesterday… Meeting all of them let me notice something about human nature… I realized that we perceive ourselves through the eyes of other people. We somehow recognize the reflection of us as the real us… How strange… We are waiting so much for their opinions about us and we often think that we are like that. Who is right…We, who should know ourselves best or other people, who create the opinions on the base of their expectations, their knowlegde and other factors, which in fact have nothing to do with us. Do we really want so much to depend on other people that at any costs we need the acceptance from outside? The  funny thing about this issue is that we admire individuals, we love them or even sometimes hate but only because of the envy that they have the courage to be independent…
