I hope you enjoy this post from one of my favorite blogs, “Seeds for Life.”
Solitude can be a powerful tool to help you realize that you are your foremost friend. You are the only person who can understand everything you have ever been, everything you will ever be, and what you are right now. People come and go in your life, like a constantly moving ocean, but it’s you who is going to swim in it. That’s why it is important to never underestimate your potential. All those wild dreams and unopened boxes of aspirations can be unlocked only by you, no one else. When you’re feeling down, try self-talk. Talk to yourself as your best friend would. Help yourself in putting a big smile on your face, and realizing that by being yourself, you add something positive and beautiful to the world. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you can’t scale that mountain. Simply tell yourself that you will, and remember that you are your best friend!
