Nature vs. Nurture
The question of importance varies from one circumstance to the next. What is naturally a part of someone predetermines their ability to adapt. If you are born with what are considered “normal” factors your chances of growing and adapting to your surroundings are greater. Isn’t it natural to seek food and shelter? Certain things don’t have to be taught , such as crying, breathing and feeling. Isn’t it natural to want to be accepted and loved?
Without nurturing you risk the likelihood of becoming an outcast, uncivilized by someone’s standards. Let’s imagine what the world would be like if we all came from little sections on this earth where there were only one other person besides ourselves in each section. Go further into your imagination and say the two were together with no outside influences; neither know anything besides what they could see, each other. Some groups have a boy and a girl, while other groups consist of two people of the same sex. Other groups would have people of different colors, The particulars don’t matter you can mix them anyway you’d like. Each couple would inhabit their own little spaces free of judgment.
Couple number one consists of a boy and a girl. They will most likely try to feed themselves by exploring their space for food. Wouldn’t it be fair to say they would become friends? Later the two will probably become intimate. These things will naturally occur. Since this is a couple of opposite sex, offspring are highly possible. This group will be one of a few to grow to more than two. The two would create some way to communicate. They will protect their offspring and teach them what they could.

Group two, consists of two people of the same sex. It doesn’t matter if they are males or females. These two also know nothing but one another. They will need to come up with food, shelter and communication. They also will become friends and probably lovers as well.
The grouping can continue endlessly, mixing anyway you can imagine. Everyone is happy in their situation. They have adapted to their surroundings and done the best they could with what was available. These relationships follow no blueprint, every action and reaction made up as they go along. Wouldn’t they experience all of the natural feelings and desires as we do? If one of them died, wouldn’t they feel sad?
The fact that there was always another person around to learn and explore with, created a society. If we were to take all of these groups and put them together after several years of them knowing nothing else but their private worlds; each believing they are the way it should be; wouldn’t it be exactly the way we live today? Wouldn’t everyone migrate to others with similarities. People like what is familiar to them. We all have a fundamental need to belong. This need tells us that we absolutely need nurturing to advance from just living to being important and influential to another human being.
