Before I proceed, I’ll like to give my say in an interview I watched. This celebrity was asked about how she achieved so much in life with all the success, she responded that it was all her doings. All she needed was God and herself, no friends. She concluded that she is self-made. I thought about her response and didn’t entirely agree with it because it’s not all about that. Now, this is not to negate her response but to correct a myth — No one is self-made.

In this context, I’m facing a real-life setting, the physical world. Of course, God helped her, but he is not human. Humans need fellow humans to survive and exist. It’s a simple fact. Even God had company when he was creating the universe, he said: “let’s create in our image”.

Having meaningful friendships is an asset in life but in some episodes, you might find yourself without any close friends. If this is your current situation, it is normal. You can practice being comfortable alone but do not disregard making friends or interacting socially. It’s worth a while.
