In life, we always turn outwardly for everything: Happiness, advice, affection, love, approval.
We ask experts for advice. We use drugs when we’re in pain. We expect others to solve our problems.
When we look at ourselves, we never even consider that we might not need those things. Being part of society is great and all. But never take it too far. Otherwise, you become a dependent robot who can’t function by itself.
It’s much better to rely on yourself. Not in a selfish way. But in an emotional way. You don’t need others to be happy.
