Better to have and give support

When I read about the Japanese concept of Moai and how the people of Okinawa practised Moai as part of their culture, I was impressed.  Their benefit of this concept is longevity, has become transparent to the world. Moai means ‘ meeting for a common purpose’.    Okinawa uses Maois, their informal  groups of social support to help members.  A narcissistic personality would not be comfortable in that setting.  Okinawa is among areas of the highest concentration  of centanarians in the world.
