comfortable with ourselves

'the worst loneliness is not to be comfortable with yourself'

To be alone is not necessarily to be lonely. We may feel lonely even within our relationships if we are not comfortable with ourselves.

When we take time for solitude, we can grow in our ability to feel comfortable in our own skin. Like any skill, this takes practice.

Sometimes, when we're not happy with ourselves, we look to other people to fill our time and keep us entertained.

There is rich contentment that comes from a self-accepting solitude.

We take that contentment with us when we return to our relationships with others. It brightens and energizes all our interactions.

So please take time to practice solitude, to learn to be comfortable alone as well as in your relationships.
