When I woke up this morning and opened the living room curtains, the two beautiful white boerbulls (large dogs) on the patio sat up expectantly and looked at me with love in their eyes. Not for me but for the large meal they were about to get.
It got me thinking about our own lives and how we are dependant upon others. Everybody wants to be part of a community of like minded individuals, hence the runaway success of the Shreddersphere.
We cannot operate successfully for any extended period of time without support, encouragement, love and expert guidance from others.
Maslow in his hierarchy of needs has stated that once basic needs have been met, air, food etc then the most important need is NOT money but recognition.
If you’ve ever been to a network marketing rah rah seminar….well, havn’t we all….you’ll notice a huge amount of backslapping and hail fellow well met, going on….the place is overflowing with bonhomie.
Because….we want to belong.
That is why this forum is SO important….Firstly, and this is mostly for the females, since men are generally uncouth and don’t really care, you trust enough to show complete strangers photographs that you wouldn’t even show your husbands.
Why….BECAUSE HERE THERE IS NO JUDGEMENT.
We also know that we can rely on our Shredder family for 100% support when things get tough.
We build friendships, we ask advice, knowing that we’ll get the best.
Your shredder friends are sincere and you know that you’ll get the truth.
Mmmm….we think we can be an Island unto ourselves AIKONA…that means…not going to happen.
Put another way….dogs live in isolation…imagine how incredible THEY would be if they had a shreddersphere.
