Who is with us in this life? Sometimes we ask ourselves, is there anyone who is really for me? In our complex world, it is easy at times to feel as if we are doing what we do all by ourselves. Does anyone really understand us? We think of our family, friends and associates— but do any of them really comprehend how we are feeling right now? There's a book entitled How to Be Your Own Best Friend which provides a key to our dilemma. In this life, when we feel as if no one can really understand what we are going through, who better to befriend us than ourself? After all, we are in the best position to know what is going on within the depths of our being— so why not turn to ourselves for inner understanding and support? While it's helpful to turn to our friends for support at times, we can also be our own best friend.
