This is so true.

I always think about having to mow the lawn or shovel snow as a kid and how my Grandpa always would say "it builds character." I don't know at what point in your young life it is established, or whether it can be found later in life, but being comfortable and happy with yourself when you are alone (especially alone with your thoughts) seems to be the key to happiness. If you don't like yourself, you will never be happy.

I agree. Whether you use money and what money can get you or other people or a substance or whatever it is when you can't be alone and alone with your own thoughts..it can be desperation for distraction and avoidance. For too many people just the thought of that is impossible.

Some people should go live in a hut next to Walden Pond
