  1. Really? Want to connect with people with integrity and intelligence who seems hard to come by. There are a plenty of people who rarely reciprocate, so the encounter is best kept at point of contact so that I can maintain my calm, content and happy state in my bubble of no expectation!

    1. The comic is not suggesting you have to connect with or like everyone. Some people are simply jerks. But caring about the non-jerks and being interested in them, is better for your happiness than focusing purely on yourself.

    1. The comic is suggesting that being interested in other people and helping other people is more satisfying than pure self-focus. But that doesn’t mean you have to like or be interested in everyone.
