It all depends on how you decide to answer it. Lets face it the question is actually not answerable. If you will think of it like I do. What makes us into who we are? Is it not our past experiences, our curricullum vitae, the story of our lives?
Most people would agree. If it is so then the question “Who am I?” or “Who are you?” is pointless since who am I is just relative to that particular moment in time. 5 seconds later I will not be the same as I was 5 seconds ago. I am not the same person I was 2 days ago nor the same person 7 years ago.
Plato also realised this problem with the known world that you can never truly know anything about it since it is ever changing. As the river is never the same river twice.
You could sit down and think about who you are but I tell you that it is a huge waste of energy because tomorrow you will be another person again. Just the fact that you have thought about who you are has changed who you are.
We could cut the question down into facts but that is a cynical way of expressing who we are. I could write 22/M/DK but does that tell you who I am?
I could of course flesh it out with more words but it is still the same.
Can we ever know who we truly are?
Only the people that live after we are dead are truly capable of telling the tale of who we were.
Today in this modern society we must be able to acquire a ton of licenses.
To ensure that we have a somewhat decent group of individuals that are able to maneuver certain vehicles we got licenses. Drivers’ licenses, pilot licenses and what not.
Why stop here? Why not ensure that the majority of to be parents are equppied to be able to take care of a child. Yeah I know that even though we got the system with licenses we got people who are shitty drivers, and there will always be shitty parents aswell.
I just feel that there is not much that I was told about being a parent. It was more like crash-and-learn. Of course we had help from the healthcare system about nurture but how to bring your child up, how to raise it, what to tell it, you are never told that.
You may say that is a private matter. But wouldn’t you be rather upset if someone raised their children being anti-semitic and just a outright arsehole?
Or a religious fanatic?
In such matters I think it is more healthy for the state to take action and remove these children, and also teach them how to be proper humans.
A religious upbringing in my book is also unhealthy, you can teach the same morale and etc. Without the twist that some superior entity told it to be so.
Should anyone become a parent?
Or should one have a licens to become one?
My relationship with Ditte has ended after 5 years. It was a mutual agreement that this was the end of the relationship. No drama what so ever and we still remain as friends.
I am looking for an apartment at the moment in the vicinity which should make me able to have Marius our son every other week. We still got shared custody and that is not going to change. Marius’ reaction on this entire ordeal? It has been none at all due to the fact he does not know what is happening. I think it is because of the lack of drama. It might be possible that he can pick up that we are acting different towards each other but he still seems to enjoy life and he is still running around in the apartment laughing with his toys flying everywhere.
A new chapter in my life has opened. Carpe diem
