Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 KJV “Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.  For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.”
The chants of “I don’t need a man,” and “I don’t need a woman,” or even, “I don’t need anyone,” took a moment of silence in this verse. Two are better than one in most situations.
In terms of labor, two can get more complete than with one. Climbing Mount Everest by oneself is a lot riskier than climbing the mountain with a friend. We would all rather walk down a dark ally with an associate and friend.
Woe to him or her who is alone and takes a fall; they have no one to help them up. The deeper news is that we have the Holy Spirit if we choose, the Holy Spirit has Jesus the Messiah. The Prince of Peace has the Father; we all have the support of the Heavenly Kingdom and we are to support others!

Ecclesiastes 4 King James Version (KJV)
1 So I returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the
sun: and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no
comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they
had no comforter.
2 Wherefore I praised the dead which are already dead more than the living which are yet alive.
3 Yea, better is he than both they, which hath not yet been, who hath not seen the evil work that is done under the sun.
4 Again, I considered all travail, and every right work, that for this a man is
envied of his neighbour. This is also vanity and vexation of spirit.
5 The fool foldeth his hands together, and eateth his own flesh.
6 Better is an handful with quietness, than both the hands full with travail and vexation of spirit.
7 Then I returned, and I saw vanity under the sun.
8 There is one alone, and there is not a second; yea, he hath neither child nor
brother: yet is there no end of all his labour; neither is his eye
satisfied with riches; neither saith he, For whom do I labour, and
bereave my soul of good? This is also vanity, yea, it is a sore travail.
9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.
10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is
alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.
11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?
12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
13 Better is a poor and a wise child than an old and foolish king, who will no more be admonished.
14 For out of prison he cometh to reign; whereas also he that is born in his kingdom becometh poor.
15 I considered all the living which walk under the sun, with the second child that shall stand up in his stead.
16 There is no end of all the people, even of all that have been before them:
they also that come after shall not rejoice in him. Surely this also is
vanity and vexation of spirit.
