We feel lonely without others because we have not built a friendship with our own selves.
Who else can be your best friend, but you?
You know your strengths. You know your weaknesses. You know your secrets. You know your desires. You know your mind.
The truth is – the less we know ourselves, the more we seek to know ourselves through others.
But they do not know us.
They know a small part of us.
But we will form an entire image of ourselves, through the limited view that they have of our life.
Does this mean we do not need friends?
Of course not. We need friends.
If one is friends with their own self, then one will still benefit from friends.
But we seem to need them because we think we are alone and need to share our thoughts, sorrows, and experiences.
That is an excuse to not be able to do so with your own self.
Become your best friend.
