To manage fear, loneliness, or unhappiness, Anne Frank said, “The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As long as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”
Be happy with yourself. Be comfortable with yourself, with your life. Make yourself happy, no matter what. People are not happy because they are not comfortable with themselves. Look, if you are not happy with yourself, you are not going to be happy with other people. If you are not comfortable with yourself, you are not going to be comfortable with other people.
Whatever you are going through right now in your life, it is not the end of your life. It is just the beginning of a new life. The question is, Are you prepared to embrace your new life?
You are in touch with yourself when you live in harmony with yourself. We suffer when we don’t listen to our true selves, when we don’t pay attention to what is going on within us.
You hear more when you listen. You hear yourself when you listen to yourself, not to others.
We don’t know who we really are because we are busy chasing wordly things. You can change it. Eckhart Tolle once said, “When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch withb yourself. When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world.”
People lose touch with themselves when they are not comfortable with themselves, when they don’t trust themselves, when they don’t love themselves, when they are sacred to face their lives. Remember, if you do not have the gut to face yourself, then you are going to find it difficult to live a peaceful life.
No matter what, be there for you. If you are not there for you, no one can be there for you. And if you are there for yourself, for you, no one can be against you. As Dr Phil McGraw put it, “You’re only lonely if you’re not there for you.” Don’t let anyone tell you how to live your life.
No matter what is going on in the world, always listen to your soul. It is important. And do not be scared to be your own cheerleader. Be your own friend. Love yourself, no matter what. As Maxwell Maltz once said, “If you make friends with yourself, you will never be alone.” If you don’t want to be alone, you must be comfortable with yourself.
If you are not comfortable with yourself, you are going to be alone. Do you want that for yourself?
