People are physical and relational beings. People were born with physical characteristics. These characteristics change over time as a person matures and when they modify their physical qualities. People learn about themselves and the world around them through relationships. They gain knowledge, develop responsibilities, acquire behaviors, and make decisions through contact with other people and the things other people produce.

Both physical and relational characteristics define people’s observable qualities. They can also act as barriers—preventing a person from completing activities or being accepted by others.
