We live in a world that constantly judges people who chose to be alone. We live in a cruel, cruel society that feels sad for the ones who are alone. As if we weren’t smart, mature and responsible enough to take care of ourselves, that we need a safety net and someone to look out after ourselves.
Seriously, singles are left to defend themselves and they are officially labeled as endangered species.
People, when will you understand that being single doesn’t mean being miserable?
When will you realize that being single can also be a conscious choice?
Most importantly, when will you understand that being alone has nothing to do with being lonely?
It’s necessary to take time out of your life and devote it to yourself. It is necessary to find a way to get to know yourself. That is why being alone is considered the ultimate key to self-growth.
It’s perfectly fine to not know where you’re going in life and it’s perfectly fine to not have all the answers. Because sometimes, being alone can help you look for them in all the unusual places. Sometimes spending that precious time with yourself can give you the peace you so desperately needed. It can trigger such deep emotions and make you understand things from a very different perspective.
Being alone has nothing to do with being lonely. Because sometimes it’s perfectly fine to want to face your darkest fears, deepest emotions and most profound feelings on your own. Even the scary ones. Even the ones that make your blood curdle. Because sometimes, that is the only way to truly understand the cravings of your soul and the needs of your heart. Sometimes, it is the only way to make friends with yourself.
Being alone has nothing to do with being miserable. Because sometimes it is perfectly fine to have the need to isolate yourself and follow your heart. It does not mean that you are desperate. It does not mean that you’ve lost faith, or you’re depressed. It sometimes means that all you need is your intimate, sacred, alone time in order to gather all your lost pieces and glue them back together.
Being alone has nothing to do with being unloved. Because sometimes it’s truly essential to reflect on yourself and let your heart say what it really feels. Because only then you’ll be exactly who you want to be without following other people’s opinions about what’s right or wrong.
Believe me, sometimes, it’s fine to let go of everyone in order to understand what is it that your heart needs.
Sometimes, it is perfectly fine to run away, find shelter in your own cozy, little, safe nook, face everything that you’re not proud of and forgive yourself for every mistake you ever did.
Sometimes, it’s okay to give up on everything in order to find yourself.
Because being alone has nothing to do with being lonely.
It is the only key to self-love and self-growth!
