Today I went for a run.
Usually, a bunch of people are around so you kind of keep pushing and keep running because of the “social pressure”. In your mind you think: “what would this person think of me if I stop running now?” and thereby, you continue to run.
For context, I also live in a relatively small town (~30k inhabitants) so it is likely that you will bump into the same person again sometime soon.
I was running today at lunch time so nobody was around, and that made things diffent.
I could have stopped whenever I wanted. No one would have seen me.
But I didn’t.
That made me think. What do you do when nobody sees you?
That’s probably what defines you.
