Ask me: It's okay to be alone.

Sometimes have you ever wonder, why people are so incredibly against being alone? Loneliness is not something to aim for, but being alone doesn't necessarily mean you're lonely. In fact, I believe spending more time with ourselves, without surrounded by people, we can find solace in the company that matters the most: the relationship within ourselves.

Often, we neglect our own self. We're too busy dealing with our daily lives and it all seemed like we're running in some sort of a race, but hey, what race are we in actually? Have we ever ask ourselves, to what end are we going? We all know that our life is just temporary. And the next minute, death actually awaits us. So my point here, why not we stay happy throughout the ride?

Being alone helps us in someway to be a better person for ourselves. It gives us space, allowing us to keep our minds clear. Often when we sit down and think through, naturally we're letting our mind flows with new information. It helps us to learn new things about ourselves. Something new that you could have discovered that you never actually knew. You see, by understanding yourselves, you gain insight into you as an individual. You will have more time to consciously roam in your mind, to notice the way you think and so forth. More of like a self-reflection. You'll learn to ask yourself questions like, "Hey, am I doing the right thing?" for an instance.

Nowadays, all of us depend too much on others for our happiness. We often use them as distractions from ourselves. And that shouldn't be the case. Being alone actually helps ourselves to be independent. Who says you can't be happy when you're alone? It's like, taking a walk at the town and getting yourself a cute pair of heels. Get me? All of us, we are born alone and die alone. We spend a lot of our lives trying not to be alone, true, but in reality, we are alone the entire time. Like me, writing this now, I'm all alone. You get up and shower, you're alone. You travel to school/work, you're alone. And hey, that's okay. Being alone is wonderful.

You'll finally be able to learn that you're enough to make you happy. The only thing you can never lose and never have to worry about is losing you. You will always have you. Learn to be happy with yourself and everything else positive that comes your way will be a surprise.

I am not encouraging my readers to be alone, (lol!) but hey, IT IS OKAY TO BE ALONE SOMETIMES. Being alone doesn't mean you're a complete loser or you're gonna die, okay? 

Till then!
