In our fast-paced world, there is a tension between “being” and “becoming” as a person. We find ourselves navigating two ongoing realities: change and consistency. In the world of philosophy, the study of existence or being is known as ontology. Specifically, “being” is the essence of you as a person. It’s static as what is—will be.
