It is said that no matter how many friends you have or if you have a good family at the end of the day, what really matters is that, you have to love yourself. When we are on our deathbed we have no one to accompany us when we die, we die alone. Therefore we always have to be comfortable with ourselves. However, whether we are going to die or while we are still walking here on earth there is still someone who will always be with us until the very end. If you want to know who, then open up your heart and let Him in you. It’s God.
