The horizon?

Explanation:

As you get further from the earth, you can see more of it at once; It therefore takes up a greater percentage of your field of view. However, once you are high enough, what you see of the earth cannot be properly described as the horizon. We could say that it no longer exist.

I'm guessing that this is

Your shadow

If you are close to

your shadow, it's fairly small

If you get far away

from your shadow, it looks bigger

If you get too far away,

as in closer to the sun, you'd die from lack of oxygen. Also, your shadow would become indistinct because of the sun's size.

Here's another guess:

age. The farther you get in life, the bigger it gets. If you die, you don't really have one.

"I" am "your" shadow.

The further you are from the light, the longer your shadow. But if you get too far away, there is no light, and therefore no shadow.

I am Shadow and you are light.
