Find a Friend

If you have to try harder you will learn. If it doesn’t come easy you’ll appreciate it when it does. If you’ve never had many friends, you’ll cherish whoever happens to come into your life. You may decide at some point that you don’t care what people think so that you can brace yourself for the loneliness you think you can handle. The feeling of independence however, can never compare with the strength of unity.

Life is nothing more than the quest for companionship and acknowledgement of your peers. You find out who you are, what you have to offer and you adjust accordingly. Even if we find ourselves bending over backwards it never seems to matter. When we are in the moment of trying to impress someone we just met, or trying to please those around us we sometimes become fools. It’s like being by yourself and getting excited over a call, you may not even expect that you’d have that reaction but you do. We lie to ourselves and other people because somehow it just doesn’t seem right to realize that this existance was not meant for us to experience it alone.

It doesn’t matter if it comes easy, or if we find ourselves really needing to work for it. We want our existance to be known to someone. I have experienced the true hell of loneliness and it is never a good place to be. To be isolated from or feel as though you are isolated from the presence of another can take you to a dark place from which there is no returning. Don’t look for a group of people to sorround you, look for a few good people to stand by you.
