Some of us are afraid of being alone, so we lose ourselves in the process of sustaining relationships and friendships. There is a difference between being alone and being lonesome. We have to build a relationship with ourselves so that we can figure out who we really are. In order to build that relationship we have to create time to be with ourselves. If we avoid building a relationship with ourselves how can we expect others to value us when we don’t value ourselves.
