I have to confess that I feel good looking out my third-floor window across the street into the bright blue tarp-covered rooftop of my neighbor.  It comforts me to see this infamous house that is on the must-see places in Center City, Philadelphia for its creative architecture is having ongoing, serious water leak problems.

It is reassuring to me that this newer, well-designed house has the same water leak problems that my smaller, old-fashioned 150-year-old house has been suffering from.

Taking a deep breath, I relax, knowing I am not alone in my water leak problems.  I even happen to know that Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, of On Death and Dying fame, had chronic water leak problems in her Healing Center in the Shenandoah Valley.

Knowing other people suffer from what you suffer from can be very comforting. This is one of the reasons I love group work and group energy. You feel much better just knowing you are not alone.

When you do not connect with others, you often feel like you are the only one in the world experiencing what is happening to you.  You feel isolated, misunderstood, different and even at times persecuted.

However, if you make the effort to connect with others, you will discover that your experiences are common human experiences. So look around you and take the risk to reach out to open, warm people and connect.

Consider joining an emotionally safe group that focuses on topics that you find interesting and appealing.  If you share your inner truths, you will find that you have the same relationship problems, the same psychological concerns and the same Inner Critic as everyone else.

Open your heart and connect with other people in an honest, truthful way.  You will feel so much better knowing you are part of the human race.
