You can’t receive self-assurance or esteem, it’s something you just give yourself. Nothing in the world can complete you, other than yourself. Loneliness is an illusion, people try to search for themselves in other people or objects and it’s pointless. If you are with yourself, you are never lonely, if you hide from yourself you will always be lonely no matter how many people you try to cover that up with. Loneliness is a state of mind, not a situation that the world throws at you.
