Tibetan teacher Mingyur Rinpoche said, “The only difference between meditation and ordinary social interaction is that the friend you’re gradually coming to know is yourself.” If you’ve ever practiced meditation, you’ll know this to be true.  Conversely, if you’ve never tried meditation, you might be thinking it sounds too difficult or too abstract.
