There are people in our lives that we claim to know, some since childhood, from a long time employment and our relatives among others.

The self adapts with exposure. My meat lover friend vowed to never eat meat again after watching a report on veal, and Suzy’s daughter volunteered for an organization to save endangered species after she finished her MBA. Both of these subjects engaged into unexpected behavior and by doing so changed who they are.

If self is always changing how one can suggest knowledge over the other?
It is important to us to know our surroundings and what to expect. We may build a framework of preset decisions such as eggs for breakfast, I do not drink during the daytime, and I always start my week with a full tank of gas.

We do the same with the people around us. It is easier to navigate a crowd after we have classified each one as being this or that. This makes us feel secure and relieves us from the burden of always trying to figure out what that person is about, and by doing so we lose subjectivity. But in reality, the assumption we have of each other is as insignificant as the idea that because we do not run out gas, or get drunk before everyone else, we have any more control of our lives or of who is in it.

“I will not make you dependent on me.  My approach is to find alternative options under a circumstance and open new doors into a resolution of old problems. Clear the docket so you can see things from other angles as you absorb other possibilities. In time, after you had conquered your needs, you will be able to replace what does not work, accept what you cannot change, and accomplish what you want.”

Neutrality comes with the price of being disconnected. Society is composed of like-minded people; teal lovers search for bluish-green connections, and the burnt sienna worshippers choose to navigate a path that’s deep reddish brown. Embracing the color wheel will yield richer exposure and isolation.
There is no glory in neutrality.
