Sometimes it's nice to be by yourself. No one to answer to, no one telling you what to do, no one you have to share your chocolate cake and milk with. But there are times, it's not so great. One small example would be when you have a bad back and really need a back rub. Sometimes a back-rub can be a somewhat magical thing. Instantly making you feel better physically, and putting you in a better mood. But missing out on that is nothing compared to the other negative aspect of going everything alone. I.E., having to deal with painful incidents in your life and you have no one to help build you up, console you or 'be there for you'. Well, I mean unless you want to go external. The internet and smart phones make all our best friends and family quickly within reach. But whose there for you on a regular basis when you go everything alone? When you hear about a friend who has died, who is there to grieve with you? When you are dealing with a father who is dying, who is there to console you? The answer, no one. Not unless, as I stated before, you reach out and schedule a time to be with some of your friends. And ultimately, when you are down, who really wants to schedule a time with someone, just so you can cry on their shoulder, cry in their beer, or knock their milk over and cry about that?
