If we were to let go of our inhibitions, our fears and yes our ego wouldn't we open ourselves up to more meaningful interactions?
My question is base on my experience of starting and running Humans of Oslo - Facebook page which came about after the Oslo terrorist attacks on 22/7-2011.. It resulted in my own experience of letting go of my ego and the constructed categories we use to give ourselves meaning. There is so much more we can experience by setting ourselves free of labels. Most of the labels such as religion, colour, ethnicity, class, interests, disabilities and gender actually prevent us from truly interacting based on mutual respect and an understanding of our common humanity and shared experiences.
