Do you consider yourself "your" possessions?
Are you the things you have accumulated, the home, the car, your furniture? Perhaps you see yourself as your job? What if someone took all those away? The role you play at work, or the street you live in. Would you have a deep sense of self remaining? Or would you feel empty and lost?
Oddly I would. I have been thinking about this question the whole morning. As I am about to “give away” an entire lifetime of accumulation. It is the strange and little things that bug me the most. The familiarity of it. I do feel though I still have a deep sense of self. I would also feel quite free. I am starting to see the relationships I have built in this lifetime as who I am, because those are the “things” that are going to hold me, to me.
