Sometimes all you want is to find someone to give you a hug, but there is no one in sight.
How do you cope with that?
I continue to learn that you can fully depend on no one but yourself. There is no one who can love you like yourself. No one that can give you what you need like yourself. No one can provide the safety you may be looking for but yourself. Sure you can ask for help from your friends and family and they'll share with you words of love and support, but nothing will take care of you like you can.
So, give yourself what you want and need. Honor your desires and dreams. Be who you are because no one else can be. Find the love you need within yourself and don't be afraid to use it. It's there and it's going to serve you, if you allow it to. People come and go (and why not love them too?). You are here for good. Love yourself and the whole world will love you back.
