Our culture values independence. We are a "pull yourself up by your own bootstraps" kind of people. And for a while independence works.
...Until it doesn't.
And in those moments of despair and isolation, we realize that independence is a "dressed up" word for another word that describes our condition more often...isolation. Despite the picture that our social media profiles put on display, we are lonely people.
Our spiritual journey was never meant to be traveled alone. We are meant to share the adventure together.
