“because he has, but rather how many varieties he has had his own experience with.”

After learning about Erving Geoffman and reading his book,his theory has been flipping around my mind for days,and weeks.Is it true,we aren’t who we are,but are who we are when we’re not around people who we act as if we are who we are?Then who are we?What’s our facade and what are our instincts?

“And to the degree that the individual maintains a show before others that he himself does not believe, he can come to experience a special kind of alienation from self and a special kind of wariness of others.”
Erving Goffman, The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life

Sometimes,being  human is a sad thing.
