Rugged Individualism

"The only way we can express our individuality is when we share it with someone else…" — Luisa Liz

Profoundly true and counterintuitive. We think of individualism as aloneness, but it isn’t. You can’t have a painting without paint, otherwise you have simply a blank canvas, and how is that individualism? It looks like every other blank canvas. In order to become an individual we must be immersed in everyone else; how otherwise to differentiate ourselves? Society is the mirror that reflects back to our self our own expression of individuality. Without society, no reflection. No reflection, no ideation/realisation, no separation, no growth as an individual. No reflection, no self. No self, no…

No.
