Both

Acclaimed poet Rumi stated, “You are not a drop in the ocean; you are the entire ocean in a drop.”

I think both mindsets matter. The optimist and dreamer in us embraces the remarkable state of being that believes the entire ocean resides in each and every drop. The empathetic self needs to recognize that ourselves or individuals we encounter temporarily adopt the mindset that we/they are a lonely drop in the ocean.

Managing our mindset allows us to toggle between the drop and the ocean.
