I heard this line today. I’ve also been reading about it – this connectedness that is possible with people – even on a sub-conscious level. Very interesting.
I like the idea of people that give me energy. Selfishly, I like it when I am energized. It’s great when you hang out with people that just energize you – to do more; to go further; to complete the task. You name it. People that give you energy help you to become more you.
The identity insight for me is that the people that energize you strengthens your identity.
Conversely though – all of this can be said of the person that drains you of energy – except for the energizing part.
