#677 Human Touch...


A young boy is upset. He runs to his mother and buries his face in her dress, holding onto her legs. The mother bends down and picks him up. His cries soon subside.
A person meets a person they admire. They spend longer than usual shaking hands,
A woman is upset. A friend gives her a hug.. she then feels better.
A cat rubs its body along your leg wanting attention, you bend down and pick it up.
We all have a deep need to touch others and be touched by them. When others touch us (in ways we like), we feel both less alone and a warm connection.
Sometimes we want others to touch us, particularly when we want to be comforted or otherwise loved, reaching out to others to show we care about them.
All primates, from monkey to man, rely on social touch. Among non-human primates, grooming is a tool used to garner favours, earn social standing, and increase access to resources.
Gossip may have replaced parasite removal as a mechanism for defining and enhancing one's place in human society, such as our primate friends,  but the desire to be touched is carved so deeply within our primate heritage that it remained even as we shed our fur.
For an infant born prematurely, social touch can literally mean the difference between life and death, for the rest of us, being touched simply reminds us that we are loved. It is part of us being human. So when you have you given hugs of late?
