Imperfection, Resistance

Going it Alone

It’s worth saying, going it alone doesn’t work well.  

Even a diamond, the quintessence of a hardened solitary object requires outside pressure to form. But not just that.  

It must be found and unearthed. It must be appraised and polished. It must be set in a foundation, or placed on a luxurious velvet pillow for display.  

And even diamonds play best with others—set against other diamonds, rubies, emeralds, silver and gold.   

Believing it’s best to go it alone won’t change the fact I only exist in the context of others and do best when I acknowledge and work with that.
