Where to look when you need…friendships
You've been thinking about your losses to the exclusion of everything else. The more you concentrate on them, the more you attract other losses. Stop thinking about them, and make up your mind that you are going to benefit from your experience. Whatever personal obstacles you face.
You must start getting to know that side of your personality that
knows NO OBSTACLE
recognizes NO DEFEAT
cultivate a friendship with other you, so no matter what you are doing, you are allied with someone who shares your goals. All the philosophy and advice about persuading others will be much more useful to you if you practice it yourself.

March 13th: One day it will all make sense
Ryan Holiday, The 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living
I saw him most mornings when I looked out of the living room window. He became part of my day. Slightly bent, he dragged one leg a little, the foot twisted so that he walked more on the side of his foot than the sole. I guessed he was in his eighties. He wore only a flannel shirt. When I could see his breath against the air on a frosty morning, I wondered if he was cold.
The children worked long and hard on their own little cardboard shack. It was to be a special spot- a clubhouse- where they could meet in solemn assembly or just laugh, play games, and fool around. As they thought long and hard about their rules, they came up with three rather perceptive ones:
Nobody act big,
Nobody act small.
Everybody act medium.
I think we are well advised to keep on nodding terms with the people we used to be, whether we find them attractive company or not. Otherwise they turn up unannounced and surprise us, come hammering on the mind's door at 4 A.M. of a bad night and demand to know who deserted them, who betrayed them, who is going to make amends.
