Everyone sees fingerprints in a different light. For a detective, they are evidence. For a person cleaning glass doors at a public building, they a reoccurring nuisance. Truthfully, most of us go throughout our days not giving 1-thought about our fingerprints.
We Teach What We Know,
But We Reproduce Who We Are.
With this in mind, the source and formation of our identity is of utmost importance. Since our identities are formed from many different influences (family of origin, hobbies, interests, friends, weight, personality, chemical imbalances, etc...), it is beneficial to as ourselves the questions 1) Who am I? 2) How do I perceive myself? 3) How do others perceive me? 4) Is there a difference and why? 5) Who do I want to become in the future?
While we can do little about our fingerprints, our actually identity can be shaped and formed, and the "mark" we make on the lives around us can be intentional.
