They say we are “social creatures”.
Some would agree wholeheartedly.
Those who enjoy nothing more than being with other people. Those who crave “social life”.
Let us call these people “extroverts”.
Some would not call themselves “social creatures”.
Those people who find interaction with others to be draining or awkward. Those who would much rather be by themselves with a book or a piano. Those who have no desire for a “social life”.
Let us call these people “introverts”.
You can take your pick.
But everyone comes to a place where they are alone in the dark with nothing but their own doubts to keep them company.
And, whether they are introverted or extroverted, they feel something.
Something we call loneliness.
And in that place we would all welcome the touch of a hand on our shoulder.
The presence of a fellow human.
Someone who cares.
When it really comes down to it, we are “social creatures”.
Because there is darkness here.
And no one wants to be alone in the dark.
