strangers or not, we're in it together

i said this twice today, and meant it more each time i thought about it:
we are not meant to be here alone. life is about the journey, but it is also about the community that we are meant to find along the way. we are not in it for ourselves, we should not be out to choose ourselves day after day. life is beautiful because we can share the joys and share the sadness. 
if we weren't meant to wrap our arms around our fellow travelers, then they would not be so welcoming or soft. conversely, when we are in need, we would not have our hands fit so perfectly with another's hands.

if we believe that we are here to serve ourselves, we are grossly missing the point.
