When I was a kid my parents thought I was afraid of the dark, but really I would lay on the floor next to the nightlight and read! :)
"I'm not lonely, Silly. I have a book." Woman Reading (1894) by Henri Matisse (Artist, France). In the Museum of Modern Art, Paris, France. If you like the art, credit the artist. Pin from the Primary Source (ie The artist's site.)
The "caring about humans" part is not true, but it does make a point I completely understand.
