Curious Contradition

It is fascinating to me how we humans (perhaps I should specify Americans, as I can’t speak for other cultures) desire both to be unique, and also to be understood.

We desire both self-sufficiency and community; to not be alone.

Eventually, if we are to be sane, we have to settle on one side or the other of these ideas, because, truly, I don’t think they can cohabit.
