RM could empathize, confessing that he used to feel the same way. Yet, he promised that despite their situation, living is worth it.

I was the same, too, once. I don’t know what you’re doing, where you’re from, what’s your age, but believe me, life is really fun. It is worth living. It is worth living.

Additionally, RM read a comment asking for advice on what to do when feeling lost and lonely. He suggested enjoying the calmness and befriending yourself.

What I do when I feel lost and lonely? This is really penetrating because I do feel lost and lonely these days really much … and I always try to get my grip, but it’s really hard… The only answer is just to enjoy the calmness and try to be friends with my own self because nobody can save you, except you.
