Part One.

"One of the things that most gets in the way of our success in wellness is our unwillingness to accept the social nature of our own being. You know, our need for one another is not an obstacle to overcome, it is a virtue to be celebrated. It is really what makes us distinctly human."

- Robert F. Allen, National Wellness Conference Closing Keynote, 1987

Of course, this means that I've been going about this all wrong my whole life (or maybe I've been right).  I've been thinking I'm a failure for caring too much about my relations with others.  Now I learn that I'm supposed to be nurturing that side of myself, and celebrating my need for others. 

So, my instinct was right, but I thought it was wrong, but THAT was wrong.

Or something.
