What do you do?
Most times this is how we open a conversation with someone we’ve just met. However…. we are more than what we do. Unfortunately, I feel that in this day and age we’re so focused on what we do, that we’ve forgotten how to BE.
We are human BEings, not human DOings. Though it is important to keep these 2 in balance. Just being without doing is just as dangerous to our self-esteem as just doing without being.
Are you just a worker? No, you’re also a man/woman, a spouse, a parent, a child.
Are you just a spouse/parent/child? No, you also bring value to this planet by what you do, be it tending the garden, helping make the meals, washing the car etc.
