Loneliness is not what it seems.
One does not feel lonely because one is alone,

one's sense of inherent worth.

A working definition of Honor is,
"respect or esteem that has been earned."
Contemplate that for a moment.
It would be very special to earn the respect and esteem

If anything, it is of even more moment to honor yourself.
Those who are successful and happy earn their own
self-respect and self-esteem.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

need for the approval of others, be careful.

is a sign of low self-esteem,
and in severe cases, a condition termed co-dependency.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

You cannot hate other people without hating yourself.
- Oprah Winfrey

Self-honor (self-respect) is in no way selfish.

do I possess the resources to
contribute anything meaningful to others.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
