Having friends is so important to a fulfilling and healthy life. No one can survive in this world alone, no matter how much they say they can. We are a species that thrives on our connection to others. It’s a natural thing to crave love, support, and friendship. It’s a natural thing to crave the touch of another person. Just a hand on the shoulder, a pat on the back, or even a hug can renew in us an energy and a light. No one can survive alone so why do we isolate when we are feeling at our worst? Why do we hide at a time when we need that touch the most? I think it’s because we don’t want to approach others with our sadness or our depression so we hole away. That, though, is the time we should reach out our hand and touch someone. If someone is a real friend they will not run away. They will run towards you to grab your hand and pull you out. That friend will touch you and renew in you that energy and light. You should never feel alone, you should reach out for help. Trust me, someone will always be there. You are never alone.
