If I am what I have and if I lose what I have who then am I?~ Erich Fromm

"what I have" could mean family and friends, or it could mean objects that I own. Losing one's relationships I believe is more tragic than losing possessions and may be of greater consequence to the sense of self. Although, if one does define oneself by the objects one possesses then isn't that more tragic than if one defines oneself by who they love and are loved by?
