"What matters is not the features of our character or the drives and instincts per se, but the stand we take toward them. And the capacity to take such a stand is what makes us human beings." [Victor Frankl]
Life is about ownership, but as a society, we've gone about this quest all wrong. We have interpreted this journey to mean amassing wealth and material goods. But what we really ought to be taking "ownership" of is everything inside us--all the good and the bad, and the niggly little bits we blindly refuse to unearth. We can start by unabashedly "owning" everything we are because it's through those cracks, craters, and crevices in our soul that we learn to embrace our humanness and make pathways to one another.
