Is it me or them?
We all have this question emerging from far deep within us at some point in our lives. This heavy-loaded question throws us into a spiral of an endless existential thoughts and ideas that usually leads to adopting one of two views: the “I,” and the “We.”
“Curiosity killed the cat” – James Allan Mair
There’s “I” in Team!
Why do I feel this way? Am I not from this place? Have I travelled through time and lost my time machine keys? Am I a stranger in this place, or this place is strange in this universe? Who is the norm?
Guess what? Everyone is and no one is!
Since the beginning of humanity on this planet, there was a continuous reincarnation of the concept of “They” and “I”. Humans progressed by creatively differing from their counterparts. Individuals followed their personal vision to be distinguished. Thus, different. However, is the eagerness to be different differentiates us?
“They” consists of different “I”‘s. Some of those “I”‘s give in the idea of unity moving collectively in harmony and peace. Some decide to follow the natural spark to be different and distinguished. Both I’s walk those separate paths. New to them, yet old to time. There is no right or wrong here. There’s only the right mentality at the right time.
So, what are you trying to say?!
Being different is not a good nor bad thing. Similarly, following the heard is no as well. We just have to step outside of the formula and see the chemistry of those elements working together. You need distinguished people to change the heard as much as you need masses to create a distinguished person that derives creative solutions from the desperate situations the “they” live in.
In short, there’s I in team after all.
