"Wired For Each Other"

Wired for Each Other" by A.J. Rasmussen

Loneliness is crippling isn't it? It isn't restricted to those incarcerated either. Some I imagine get as lonely as me if not more so. I spent much of my life unable to bare sitting home alone, or without being surrounded by family or friends. It has taken a good amount time in prison to finally reach a point where I am somewhat comfortable spending time, in my cell, with just myself.

Even so, I still realize one can't walk through life alone. I have always struggled with being emotionally codependent on other people in order to feel happy and complete, any second away from the person led to anxiety and depression. This is something I have been working on but still have my battles.

When I heard a pastor say that "We are wired for each other", I was set back and felt as though I may finally have found a justification for my issues with codependency.

I've spent ample time since pondering that statement and evaluating what he truly meant. Through my studies I've come to realize that yes, we need each other, but there is a healthy balance to this. Our ultimate "dependence" must be on God, but at the same time we are all part of one body {For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Romans 12:4-5}, and two are better than one {Two are better than one...For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10}

Alone, we will fall. Together we can prosper. Even Jesus surrounded Himself with people, rarely was He alone. There is a time to be alone {To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under the heaven...A time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing...Ecclesiastes 3:1, 5}, but as the old adage says, there is strength in numbers. I think we all ought to look into being "re-wired", finding balance in our lives, setting and keeping priorities, and surrounding ourselves with those who God puts in our life, leaning on each other as need be.
