#08To Exist in the Eyes of Others

What does it mean to “exist” today?

Who are we without the “likes,” “views,” “friends,” “followers” and the digital gaze of others?

The construction of our identity as a human being is increasingly shaped by social media—Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Snapchat and a handful of other private companies that reduce us to profiles.

The choice of building one’s own identity implies the shift from being their relationships (and what they project about them) to owning their relationships.

It’s time to move away from the mirror to become someone who is in control of their own life.
