What connects us is way of communication and problem solving skills. We all have different ways of solving problems in life but at the end of it we have the same solutions.

What connects us is the way we all can get along with each other. Everyone has different ways to connect with an individual, and it’s an amazing sight to see. At the end of the day , being connected in some sort of way is what really matters.

Empathy and vulnerability. As Mmufson said, we have the same needs and desires universally. We can understand each other’s basic needs and the vulnerability experienced with the loss of basic needs.

We are all capable of tremendous love and tremendous hate. We can choose love over hate. This is a more difficult path. I like to believe that society is evolving in this direction. Evolutionary theory tells us that it was the human capacity for cooperation that enabled us to survive in conditions where other species were better adapted to environmental conditions. Cultural evolution accompanies biological evolution and, perhaps, we are moving towards a shifting point where the values of compassion and cooperation will supersede the ideology of domination

What connects us is our ability to communicate with others. At the end, communication skills solve many of people’s problems.

What connects us? I believe that what connects us to our peers or anyone in particular is the common qualities or similar experiences. I also believe that connects more is social media because you could could find and meet so many people. Connection has to do a lot with communication and it could be the way we communicate with different peers when are put in a specific role.

Empathy, tolerance, and skepticism. We’re not all going to agree, nor should we, but we can allow others to live a different way. Don’t believe everything you hear, and you might find out that you heard wrong…we’re all probably more alike than we thought!

Building communities and living among one another connects us. We all have our own views and ideals and seek people with similar views and ideals typically. Communication and working in our communities to help provide services are ways we connect. Tolerance and understanding others with opposing views are ways to help connect people with one another.

There is a spectrum of consciousness. At one end is 100% fear and at the other end is 100% love. We all fall somewhere inside this spectrum. The more love, the less fear, and visa versa. I believe love, first for ourselves, and then for all sentient beings, pushes the fear away. Then united we stand.
