This famous Jewish singer, known as Avraham Fried teaches such an important lesson. It is amazing how he teaches this lesson with a song. Truly, a pleasure to listen to and learn from.

“If I am I because I am I, and you are you because you are you—then I am I and you are you. But if I am I because you are you, and you are you because I am I—then I am not I and you are not you” Kotzker Rabbi
The important lesson that we need to learn from here is to just be yourself. Everyone was given a purpose to be on this world, you can’t complete your life’s mission by being someone else. You need to be yourself. The best person you can be is yourself. Your value to the world is truly unique, you should share this unique value with others.
Alternatively, one can understand from this that one needs to be somebody. Don’t be that shy person in the background, stand out in the crowd. Do something good in this world. Leave a long-lasting positive effect behind for future generations.
Finally, this is just a good song to listen and I hope you take the important lesson to heart and just be yourself.
