We all need to love and to be loved. When love is missing from our lives our health diminishes. We all need to have something that give our lives meaning. Without meaning, our health slowly, but most certainly, evaporates. We all hurt over the same issues, we all have fears that lessen the quality of our lives and we all have pain, regrets and grief that we are trying to heal. And we all have to work on developing our self-esteem and feeling good about who we are. We are, in spite of all of our efforts to be different, remarkably alike.
