The one relationship that is of maximum importance is the one you have with yourself.

When you are not alright with yourself, obviously you will seek an alternative to your company: “Can there be somebody to relate to? Can there be somebody to sit with, fill myself up with, form a bond with? Can there be somebody else I can look at? Because if I look at myself, all I see is nonsense. If I am only with myself, I have nobody else to look at but myself. Everything about me is just hot air. So, I would rather that the eyes look elsewhere: I will pick up the phone and call somebody up, or I will travel to the market, or I will look for marriage or a social circle or a weekend group, or some kind of a community.” That’s loneliness.

Loneliness is when you are not alright with yourself. Aloneness is when you are alright with yourself.
