We have all watched the runner finish the race and throw their hands in the air in victory. They are excited. The crowd cheers and claps. Then we watch a basketball player sink the last second three pointer and the team erupts off the bench and tackle the shooter while the fans rush the court. Winning alone is fun. Winning as part of a team is much more. Life is better when shared with others. Life is more fun when we can do what we love along side people we love. The quality of life is multiplied when the number of people involved is multiplied. There is a reason why we curl up in a ball and into the fetal position and want to shut everything out when we are sick or tired. And there is a reason that when we win or when we are excited, we throw our arms in the air and jump up and down as if we are inviting anyone around to join us.
