Human beings need each other. It's a fact. We can't be left on our own as infants or children. And we crave human contact, even the most introverted of us. The close relationships that make us most happy are those that are "characterized by mutual understanding, caring, and validation of the other person as worthwhile." We all want to feel loved and cared for. We need to know somebody sees us as having worth.
