We live in a world that is pulling us apart yet squeezing the life out of us. Every day is a battle to inch forward – or worse, make up the lost ground of yesterday. Our thoughts are occupied by the need to survive and succeed that we sometimes forget that we don’t operate in isolation. Humans are after all social creatures and within a modern living, all of us are interconnected, one way or another.
Unfortunately, this intrinsic need to survive our daily world inhibits the way we deal with others – we are far too focused on the self that we do not give enough thought to others. The child throwing a tantrum thus becomes labeled as insolent; the man who bulldozes past you is nothing more than an entity out to spoil your day.
