People are Mirrors That Reveal Our Shadows

                            Some people are afraid of being alone. You, too, may have sought external stimulation by constantly trying to spend every waking hour with others, unsure of what to do when you’re by yourself.  You may even find that you spend all your free time on social media, needing to feel that connection with others from afar.
