Why do we need people around us? People can hurt us, upset us, or disappoint us… But let’s not forget that most people do more good than harm to us.
People offer us with new interpretations, to help us widen our own understanding of the world. People comfort us, in times of desperate need. People distract us, when distractions can actually be useful to us.
People provide us with company. Without people, you’d be lonely, and loneliness is the most agonising, exhausting, and draining emotion. Loneliness is trap. Loneliness makes you feel like you’re at the bottom of a dark ditch, alone. But people can rescue you, with their ladder and their light, from the bleakness of loneliness.
Don’t be afraid to open up to the people around you.
