Did you see the movie starring Tom Hanks called Castaway? It is the story about a fellow who worked for a delivery corporation who is flying in a company plane over the South Sea. The plane crashed, and he became marooned for four years on a deserted island.
The character played by Tom Hanks is all alone. All he had were the clothes on his back and a few packages from the plane that washed up on the shore. One box contained a volleyball which he eventually painted a face on and named "Wilson." Wilson became his only friend. He talked to the volleyball like it was a real person.
We are not made for isolation. We were not intended to talk to volleyballs. We are made for heart-to-heart, intimate, inter-dependent friendships.
Don’t try to go it alone out there. Decide to be a friend and to run the risks necessary to have friends.
