I am not sure why it takes so long to surrender to the fact that People need people. Our human connection seems to be the most important gift we have besides our relationship to God. Maybe it is because of people disappointing us and hurtful exchanges.
The closer I get in relationship to Daddy God ,Holy Spirit and Jesus the less offended I seem to be with peoples shortcomings. I see people with kinder eyes and forgiveness flows more rapidly. This forgiveness comes with a new element of understanding them, as humans and our frailties as humans.
I recently had back surgery and it felt good to invite companionship in the process and help. The help has been a bit harder because I am such a doer. I am learning some things the hard way still.
