I don't like using the word "my." I mean, it's impractical not to do so. But I am just aware of how weird it sometimes feels now when I use it, especially in regards to referring to others (i.e "my professor" or "my friend"). Like, nothing (and no one) is truly--solely-- "mine." Nothing belongs to me that is separate from the whole. Everything is connected and universal. I know it may sound frivolous because it's just a word, but words have power...oftentimes more so than we consciously realize.

I find the word "our" to be more appropriate or at least, feel more comfortable using it. That might sound weird, and I'm not wording this properly. It's just something that's been on my mind for the past week or so.
