Do you ever talk about yourself in parts? You know, “part of me feels this way” or “part of me wants this to happen.” Think about it for minute. Do you do it?
Well, you’re not alone. Just this morning I told a client that “part of me would love to be backpacking right now.” Why only part of me? What are the other parts of me wanting to do?
I can’t imagine only taking a part of myself backpacking. So why do I talk about myself as being a part? Why wouldn’t my whole self want to be backpacking right now?
I notice this all the time. From friends, to clients to people in passing – everyone talks about themselves in parts. Why is it that we don’t talk about ourselves as wholes?
Think about it. I’d really like to know. I have my own opinions, but I can’t learn anything from my opinions. I need your opinions to learn something. So tell me…
what’s the truth, does all of you want to be doing something – or just parts?
