“Being there for others is often quite unsexy. Think of actions such as callingyour dad spontaneously, asking him how he is doing, or offering your roommate to go the supermarket because he or she feels ill. They require us to step over our ego, to adapt a vulnerable position. This is something which almost feels uneasy in a time wherein we seem so fixated on the DzIdz, in a time wherein we construct Facebook profiles that make us feel cool, or walk into a party with an indifferent facial expression, flying high on the idea of the invulnerable self. The vulnerable, repetitive, minimal, unsexy, ways we are there for others, is, however, what makes us truly human beings.”
