I love being alone. No I’m not talking about being single, I mean just literally being alone. Being nice and cozy in my bed, watching a movie, listening to music, testing out my new adult coloring book. But so many people are fearful of being alone. Some people need to have someone with them at all times. But I think being alone is so empowering. Independence is a gift we should all try and cherish. Spend one Saturday alone and you will be able to realize so many things about yourself you never knew. I think everyone should take the time out to just figure themselves out. We all think we know ourselves so well, but we don’t truly know who we are until we see how we act when we are alone. I’ve learned so much about myself over the past year because at least once a month, I’ve spent a day to myself. I put away my phone, take out my journal or pop in a movie, and just live for myself and not anyone else. Life is so much better when you realize who you are. At 18 years old, I’m still trying to figure myself out and that’s okay! But we can’t figure ourselves out if we’re constantly with other people who influence our thoughts and actions. I know it’s hard to be alone and that society wants you to be out with your friends every Saturday night, but you could take one Saturday every month and just chill. Watch your favorite movie, take a walk around your neighborhood, find new music, just do something for yourself because being alone does not mean you have to be lonely.
This may all be influenced from me watching How to Be Single twice in the past week, idk,
but just try discovering who you are for a change.
