Loving Kindness.

I meet so many people who are lonely because they depend on others to fulfill their needs.  This happens because of a lack of confidence or self-worth.  The truth is, we cannot satisfy our own needs or those of others if we have not found contentment in ourselves.  Being alone should be regarded as a gift and a time to acquire true wisdom. Being mindful of the need for Love and Kindness encourages us to consider others, but it also involves being kind  and gentle towards ourselves.
