Enjoyed your article! From the perspective of seeing the world gray (not black or white) yes, it is important to remember we don't need someone else to enjoy a movie at the theater or a nice meal in a fancy restaurant. However, we do need others (quality relationships) if possible. Can we live without it? Yes. But life most people who have a few great relationships tend to be more fulfilled. Additionally, it's important to shred any toxic relationships from childhood, family, etc. Doing this gives us room to meet the right people.
There is no shame in enjoying things on your own.
Furthermore, being with someone is overrated. Although with the right people very beneficial!
Thank you for writing this Anthony!
