The Distance That Exists Between Us And Others Is Something That We Both Love And Hate

The distance that exists between us and others is something that we both love and hate. And that dual love-hate condition marshals our senses, our energy, and our resources like nothing else. Distance and separation actually animate us in ways that few other things can – to the point where those who aren’t invigorated by the idea of meeting new people and jumping into new situations are seen as pathologically avoidant and oppositional.

You can’t just keep to yourself. You can’t just stay at a distance. You have to connect. Or something is clearly wrong.
