I just do not want to be insignificant. – Susie Myerson (The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, pilot episode)
What is it -if it is an ‘it‘- in the human psyche or mind that wants us to have impact?
Where does that yearning come from?
Is it a pre-existing condition; a natural component in our metaphysical DNA?
Is it learnt behaviour or response, by virtue of socialisation?
Is it a spiritual matter, inextricably linked to personal faith or belief?
Is it a right or a responsibility?
Does it matter?
Whatever the answer(s), as co-inhabitants and co-contributors in our current world, desiring to be of significance, seems like a positive baseline to have in mind.
