I've often had the same reaction myself.

If I'm some completely self-sufficient island, why would I care about connecting with others, especially others who may not be as "whole" as I am myself?

Actually, I have always parsed statements like "you must be whole unto yourself before you seek out relationships with others" as some kind of (probably unattainable) standard of mental health. A "job requirement" that very few actual human beings fit.
