Working on yourself

Working on yourself is not a distraction from loneliness but instead its replacement. When we have done our homework on our psyche we find that we are more amenable to being with others but also equally able to find pleasure in being alone. We end up finding a balance between the two that we can adjust as required.

I had to learn this lesson for myself and by removing childhood trauma over being trans, finally found a level of peace with it. The introspection was hard work but it paid off and I was finally able to come to terms with my identity which then in turn solidified my confidence. Once you are a self contained being, you find yourself less wanting while still remaining open to being surprised by life.
