Do you cherish the time you have by yourself? You can actually enjoy your friendships and romantic relationships much more when you're comfortable being alone. Here are some ways to make peace with time away from friends and family.
Having a pet, preferably a dog or cat, can give you a sense of responsibility that makes you understand how important your life really is. You will not only have your pet's unconditional love, you'll also have their trust. They need you to live, and this feeling alone can help you appreciate your alone time.
Not only that, but pets force you to be more active. You have to take them outside for exercise, feed them, take them to the vet and the groomer, and these activities will keep your mind focused on their care rather than on being alone.
