A cat can deal with it’s singularity, sheep can not. People who are afraid to be alone are sheep.
Being alone is no punishment or burden. One has all the tools they need to survive on their own.
One simply must learn what one likes and doesn’t like, what one wants and doesn’t want.
Too many people do not know what they really like, because they go along with the crowd. One has to have those moments of singularity to appreciate their own desires and choices.
Once one has done this, a world of their likes and dislikes opens. One can chose to eat ice cream for breakfast, to shop in the early morning.
One can decide how much or little money they require, and set one’s life accordingly..
