positions himself in relation to someone else

I'm trying to say that in someone's diary, he positions himself in relation to other people rather than writing about himself, his own goals, his own life.

My instinct lead me to construct this sentence:

Au lieu d'expliquer qui il est et quel est son but, il se met complètement en relation avec quelqu’un d’autre.

But is this the sense of "se mettre en relation avec quelqu'un"?

Merci :)
