Consider a situation in which you travel to attend a friend’s wedding. You purchase your tickets, pack your bags, travel to the airport, traverse the terminal, check into your hotel, iron your clothes, get ready, and ultimately arrive at the celebration. You may feel like you have accomplished a lot. Indeed, you have. You have engaged in forethought, exercised patience, navigated an unfamiliar environment, and even lifted some heavy bags. You can give yourself a pat on the back for all that you have accomplished. It may feel as if you have done all of this by yourself, on your own, and that you deserve the credit. On the other hand, you could not have made this trip without the help of your taxi driver, airplane pilot, hotel employees, and countless other people who assisted you along the way. Everything you do is carried out with the help of other people. This example illustrates that while we may often take credit for the actions we carry out, even the most mundane of everyday activities require the assistance of other people.
