"The fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, etc.) is impossible to manifest by yourself. These things only come about in the context of relationship. That's why Jesus sent out His disciples 2 by 2...that's why He sends the church out as a body. Because He's not just revealed by you or me individually.
