Companioning

 

“Human interaction is essential to our vitality.” 

Life can be hard, hectic, happy, sad, fretful, boring, numb and dumb, or joyful and exciting. Life can be anything.  No matter our state, we sometimes could benefit from the simple presence of another human.  

 

Maybe we need to simply be.  Maybe we need to be checked on and don’t want to bother our loved ones, or our loved ones want us checked on and we don’t want to be bothered by them.  Maybe we need someone to play cards with or put together a puzzle with.  Human interaction helps us feel alive and have perspective on ourselves.  Or (Human interaction gives us perspective on our lives and makes us feel real.)
