I read once in a National Geographic magazine that as we humans evolved early on if we didn't forge a connection with others we would have died. True story.
Banding together into groups and family units helped ensure we could weather the ups and downs of sickness, finding food, building shelter, and more.
Ultimately, we leaned on one and other to ensure our survival. It's like in that Pixar movie The Croods (see image). If you haven't watched it, WATCH it with your kids or by yourself...I won't judge.
