For so long I was afraid to be alone. I mean I hated being alone! I think that it had everything to do with growing up and being told that it wasn't safe to be alone. Over the years I have learned that being alone is not a bad thing! Being alone allows me time to do some deep soul searching. It allows me time to get to know myself better.
It was well into adulthood that I went to a movie by myself...know what I learned? I liked it...I didn't have to share my popcorn!
It was well into adulthood that I was comfortable going into a restaurant as a party of 1. What did I learn? It was relaxing to go into a restaurant with my Kindle...enjoying my meal while reading.
It was well into adulthood that I learn to enjoy traveling by myself. What did I learn? I discovered that by traveling by myself I could go and do things that I wanted to do and not worry about if someone else was enjoying it.
It was well into adulthood that I realized that I could be alone..and what did I learn? I learned that I could depend on myself to take care of myself!
Being alone has taught me that I can do it!
