Instead of allowing the relationships between people, food, clothing, vehicles, achievements, etc. to become who we are, let us begin by defining ourselves then letting these other articles that we find in our environments fall neatly into our experiences like so many puzzle pieces. If it doesn't fit, let it fall to the floor. Not forever mind you, but just for the moment. Remember the size and shape of the misfitting piece and be able to return to it if ever a hole opens up for it.
