Just thinking out loud: Humans Alone vs Social

I appreciate the honest sharing of your thoughts @stuckonu . I agree with what ginger just said regarding the benefits of living alone and also the benefits of sharing your life. I personally look at this topic through the lens of "what is the purpose of life " or "why am I on earth. " my answer, for me, is simple. I am alive to interact with others in my world. And I don't mean just family and friends. I believe I am here to help in whatever way possible whoever crosses my path on a given day. Help can be many seemingly incidental things . Talking to the cashier at the grocery store or taking a neighbor some cookies. Or hugging someone you ordinarily wouldn't hug. Or really listening to people when they speak to you . I don't think it matters whether you choose to live alone or with others. I think the only thing that matters is engaging with people with kindness.

Thanks georgette for your thoughts and feelings. Indeed, as an HB on a crowded planet, being there for others; including other living things is necessary and often rewarding beyond words.
