We have to hold onto each other.
It’s simple. We need each other. We always have. No one person operates in a vacuum. We should be concerned for our fellow man. We should find reasons to love, instead of reasons to push people away from us.
We get nowhere in life by isolating ourselves. By only listening to ourselves and those who agree with us. By thinking we have all the answers, that we know everything.
Certainty is good, but it should always be tempered by an open mind. We should always be open to other ideas, to new ways of thinking, and to the fact that others might not agree with us. Certainty doesn’t make what we think better than what those who disagree think. That’s a common error. Just because we believe something to be true, it doesn’t make our ideas better than the ideas of someone who doesn’t believe the same thing. Arrogance is never attractive and is often destructive to relationships and to the world. We have to learn to accept that our way is our way, it works for us, but it might not for someone else, and that’s OK. It doesn’t make them less than.
We need to hold onto each other. To take care of each other. We just do.
