All people share in a state and relationship we call the human condition. In this we are one; we are of a kind. You are human, I am human, they are human—we are all human. Since we're all of a kind, we might as well act that way. Really, aren't we all doing everything we do to gain happiness or avoid suffering? Of course, many of our efforts are misguided, in that they do not bring the results we seek. Still, we are all, in our own way, trying to be happy.
