A list of things we can’t do alone

Learn how to tie shoelaces
Experience a warm hug
Disagree about what to watch
Get fit
Overcome addiction
Be a well rounded professional
Create a family.
Silence the dark voices in our heads
That sound like our own.
Its not that we can’t find
A video tutorial on YouTube,
Or a self improvement program
Or new technology
To help us do such things
Without another actual person involved,
But there’s something about
Being human
That only lights up
In the presence of others
And reminds us that while
We are capable of extraordinary things
Many of them are best done
With others.

It is not good for man to be alone.
_Genesis 2:18
