When you see me, I see you

When you see me, I see you.

Yet if I am alone, by myself, isolated-will you ever have a chance to see me?  

Despite population growth, teeming transport and busy cities, an individual can feel as one, cut off from the rest of the world.

Individualism masks our inherent desire to connect.

Competition keeps us one step ahead or behind.

Yet you and I are the same.  

We know life’s ups and downs.

We feel pulled to enjoy, live and be in the world.

Why is it so challenging to share our humanity?

We have a similar destiny, do we not?

We are all part of the same human race.

Whether big, small, young, old, fit or unhealthy we share the world.  

We all breathe the same air.

We all walk the same earth.

We all want to survive, sustain and grow.

So when you see me please see more than just me.  

See you.
