Meaningless me

At some point in my life I started hating everything I was. That might often be seen as a bad thing, but it can be a great start to making a better person out of you.

I find myself constantly struggling against my identity as identities can often separate people from each other. Ideally, I’d like to be able to relate to other people. Ideally, I want to relate to everyone.

Where does that leave me? Maybe it doesn't leave me anywhere. Maybe I don't need to be anywhere? I don't know. I don't want to be different than you.

How close do we want to be to each other? How separate? If you give up your identity can you be there for anyone? Everyone?

I have no family, no culture, no race. I am human, like you. The differences between us are minuscule.
