Think of a dog. Think of how they act when they're left alone. They whimper, they sulk, they sleep, they wait... and wait... and wait... Then think of the joy and elation and that adorable wagging tail when their Person comes home. Multiply that by about 1,000 (not an official number), and you have the connection desire of the human being. We are made for it. We drift without it, and our spirits celebrate when we *really* connect and attach. The key is learning to attach and connect in healthy, fulfilling ways.
