When being asked, who his best friend is, many a people shall respond "this person" or "that person". I, however, grow to believe that this is wrong.
Our own best friend is actually and should always be.. ourself!
We give our best friends or beloved ones advices that they should take care of their bodies or their health. Yet how many of us has done it to ourself?
We give our best friends or beloved ones consolation when they make mistakes and regret about them. Yet how many of us has done it to ourself?
While we seem to always attempt to be best friend to our beloved ones, why haven't we become one to our own self?
Friends will not always be on our side. But we are always on our own side.
You may lament as well that God is not on your side when a misfortune or calamity strikes in your life. Yet you are always on your own side.
As many wise men say that we are the block to our own enlightenment or advancement. In the pursuit to that end, at its every cherishful or harsh turn, we should always be our own best friend!
