Connection and Contribution

Everyone is looking for a way to distinguish themselves.

Everyone wants love.

We can deny it or hide it, but all of us crave connection and a way to contribute our gifts.

When I feel the lack of these things, I can choose to withdraw. I can choose to rage against those who seem to have what I lack. Or I can choose to make a difference for those who are also in need of connection and contribution.

These people are everywhere. They are my neighbors. They are my enemies or my competitors. They are the strangers I fear or the friends I have yet to meet.

If I remember this when my own plans (for who should love me, or who should value my gifts) crumble, I will thrive.
