The beginning of this reads like the Beatitudes, and I definitely think it's a good piece of advice to heed. In the past, a lot of us have (and many still do) fear being alone with our own thoughts because sometimes our thoughts take us to dark places that we'd rather not deal with
To know yourself means you've been to those dark places (or otherwise - if you're one of those perpetually happy people, lucky you! Share the happiness, please!!) and have made it back, or your chiseling the dark bits off, piece by piece. Drowning yourself out using other people, or other things only works for a little while. Trust me, I've tried it. So embrace a bit of solitude this week, and get to know you a bit more. Even if you don't like what you find, you can start fixing it! Better late than never, right?
Have a good one :) Thanks for reading, and please don't forget to share!
