I just couldn’t live without…

Day 4

I just couldn’t live without people around me. If I somehow ended up stranded on an island with no hope to see any people for a long time, there would be no surviving for me.

I think humans were made to exist in community and without each other we lose our meaning and sense of identity. Family and friends make a big difference in my life each day. Strangers around me as I walk downtown add a buzz to that public space. Watching the World Cup with other soccer fans makes the experience worthwhile.

So even though I can be a private person who enjoys some me-time every now and again, I am happier with people around! I wouldn’ handle being the ‘last person on earth’ if there will ever be such.

    Very true, mind you there are some people that I can do without in my life
