Alone, we slip into a self reinforcing haze. A place of isolation in which the only voice we hear is our own, and we become more and more convinced that our world view, what we see, is the only one that makes sense, the only one that is correct. Living in our own heads we build empires, cast down the unworthy, glory in our intellect. We become a floating island of ego, living within ourselves and living only for ourselves. Other people are the only antidote to this. Friendship offers not only companionship, love, and fun, but it offers a reflector as well. Our ideas, prejudices, hatreds, misconceptions and brilliant notions bounce off another human being and are reflected back. We are forced to face ideas other than our own. Our mental lives become less rigid, we gain the ability to grow, to change our minds and to understand the perspectives of others.
