Each one of us is in different role every day. In our work environment, we might be a coworker, a boss, or an employee. You have another role in your private life— as a spouse, a parent, a child, a friend, or a sibling. Also in society or organizations you have responsibilities and duties – as a citizen, resident, as a member of the community, etc.
While each role you play is independent, they are also co-dependent and interdependent. In other words, each system or component is inextricably linked to another. Yes, you are an independent being, but your actions, views, and beliefs are linked to the wider systems as a whole.
