I can relate to what the article describes in regards to my work as a doctor. There are certain requirements and expectations of me of how to perform in my role and of course I attempt to fulfil such as good as I can. I understand that as expressing the role of being a doctor, the I-IT between me and the patient. And I always try to balance that with I-THOU moments in which there are simply two humans in a room, and I attempt to be present, genuine and not on automatic pilot, but expressing from the heart. There is a very different feel to that for me and usually I am aware that the other person also notices and is receptive of this moment of I-THOU.

I love this example as it highlights clearly how roles can be helpful to a certain point but over identification can be a hindrance in relating. Thank you for sharing πŸ™βœ¨
