You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with.
— Wayne Dyer

It’s summer in the northern hemisphere, and that means people get out of the house and fill their days with a multitude of activities. Picnics and cookouts, parties, swimming, road trips, boat trips, family reunions, and on and on.

Who could ever feel lonely with all that’s going on, right?

But even in the midst of crowds, of friends and family, we are quite alone within our own minds.

Like building a friendship over time with another person, remember to build the friendship with yourself. It’s an ongoing process, not a one-time task.
