What Do I Mean by “Future”?

When I look back on my life, I realize that I was often able to take great steps when others saw something in me that I could not yet see in myself, when something became possible that others made possible, which seemed impossible to me. […] If we ask, in relation to the future: “What is coming towards us?”, “What wants to arrive here?”, then we can formulate it even more clearly: “Who is coming towards me?” “Who wants to arrive here?” “Who wants to free me from the slumber of my supposed impossibilities by calling something into being that I would never have been able to do without the call of the other?”
