Building Blocks

Updated: Aug 23, 2021

Although I can certainly appreciate you’re a unique individual in your own right, I do usually like to observe and start the conversation with the things we all have in common.

I think it’s undeniable that we all share some foundations, some basic truths that somehow shapes your reality as an individual.

So what do we all have in common exactly?

Well, we are all born and we all have to die (that’s kind of a big one).

We all have physical bodies, grounded in biology.

We are all subject to basic biological drivers (to eat, drink, sleep, procreate and to survive)

We all want to feel safe and secure.

We are ultimately social creatures and benefit from a sense of belonging.

We all live on earth and have to contend with the natural elements.

We are natural beings (and organisms).

We all have to interact with other people at some point in our lives.

We all have to navigate our own way through life and deal with the complexities and challenges it throws at us – meaning we all suffer and we all struggle at some point.
