Nurture Social Relationships

Yes. I cannot disagree with one bit of this:

The happiest people on the planet are the ones who have deep, meaningful relationships. Did you know studies show that people’s mortality rates are DOUBLED when they’re lonely? WHOA! There’s a warm fuzzy feeling that comes from having an active circle of good friends who you can share your experiences with. We feel connected and a part of something more meaningful than our lonesome existence.

Doodly doo.

Do you think that scorpions have deep, meaningful relationships? Dude, I just googled "are scorpions social" and Google autofilled that for me. How many people could have already asked about the social lives of scorpions, and do I want to meet them? Seriously. Do you think it's been like five people or, like, ten thousand? Like enough for ScorpCon?

What do I know about nurturing social relationships. People are a mystery to me. I keep meaning to talk to Myra about this, but I always get distrac—

Okay, I'm lying. I mean, I'm not lying that people are a mystery to me. But I do, actually, have deep, meaningful relationships that I'm so secure in, I seem to have reclassed them from "people" to earth. I'm a Virgo, so I mean that in a good way and not like dirt. Which basically means that "people" to me means "people I don't understand." Which basically means that people I don't understand are a mystery to me. Which maybe isn't something to worry about too much.
