We are all more fully realized than we have been at any other time in our history, and yet are more isolated and emotionally desensitized.
Despite being more successful and fully realized than we have ever been, we have lost the capacity for romantic intimacy. We have gone numb in that department across the gender divide. We have come to prioritize accomplishment over romantic intimacy. So, we have chosen self over others. But are we choosing, or is this isolation a byproduct of misaligned values and priorities?
