About Close Relationships

A grounded understanding of how we got to be the way were are is the path to happiness, or, at least, gracious acceptance of the of the peculiar ways of relationships. I and Thou focuses on self-identity and the interface between one individual and others.
Each human discovers who she or he is in an ongoing series of revelations. Humans often have the illusion of inventing themselves from nothing. They often claim to be the authors of their own destiny, but they are passengers in an ancient vehicle on a journey that they have difficulty comprehending. As humans journey through life, they continue to discover who they are and what it means. If they have choices in the direction of their journey, reasonable decisions are achieved by diligent effort, learning and practice. The process of individuation depends on the opportunities provided by the local environment and by practicing innate abilities and following innate tendencies.
Humans are social animals and generally depend on each other to provide context and meaning. The strongest drive is to have a deep bond with one person, the soul mate, lover and custodian.
Humans interact continuously and although they may not agree with one another, still seek and require consensus about what is real and true. "Thinking" is largely talking, a social activity. Isolated individuals with talk to themselves and will tend to lose track of what is important and real without interactions with others.
