How important is it to you to feel "known"?
I don’t mean as in being famous, although that is one way of being known and it may be important to you or not at all.
What I mean is having connections with people who really “see” you . They see what is in your heart, what drives you, what keeps you up at night.
When all is said and done, is this way of feeling known more or less important to you than making a “contribution to society”? So few of us will make any major accomplishments that will stand the test of time.
Is feeling “known” enough? Is it equally or less important to feel understood?
