Mistake: Super Short Story #698

He had mistaken his social wants
with his spiritual needs.
Though they can become one,
they are not always so.

What he craved were social friends, 
while he thought he desired spiritual friends.
What he looked for was friendship,
while he thought he searched for spirituality.

Thus, he ended up joining a cult
for its ‘better’ friends,
while forgoing the tough love
of his actual spiritual friends.
