Have you ever been in the company of others, and feel more alone than you have ever felt, actually being alone?
I have literally sat in front of another person or beside them, and felt so alone, that I long to be alone, so that I would feel in better company. I think it is when you are in the company of “takers”, people who you cannot connect with, because they have no desire or ability to be close to another or just lack the interest in anyone other than themselves.
From now on, I am going to avoid being around this kind of people. I will spend my time wisely in the company of like people. This too is a way of showing myself love, by valuing myself enough, not to take less than I deserve.
