“Gratitude is by definition antiheroic. It does not depend on courage or strength or talent. It is based on our incompleteness. …The great sense of relief that comes with gratitude derives from the recognition that we cannot manage alone, that we do not have to strive to be a superman or superwoman, and that even if we are not so brilliant, we are fine as we are. “ – Pierro Ferrucci

This is what makes gratitude truly challenging: the acceptance that we need others. We all like to think of ourselves as self-sufficient. In fact, our society is hyper focused on it. It pushes independence and self-sufficiency: the idea that we can ‘ go it alone’ is venerated to the extreme. But it’s just not true. We need one another – in base notions and in high notions. We need someone to heal us when we’re sick. We need people to enforce laws. We need companionship. We need friendship. Physically, we need the touch of another. We need each other, no ifs, ands, or buts about it.
