It’s Ok…

To be alone.

Learn how to enjoy your own company and to be ok (at peace/ content) whether you’re surrounded by numerous people or if it’s just you all by yourself.
I don’t know if it’s because I’m a bit of a loner or if its because I’ve just gotten used to doing things solo, but I love having my “me” time.
While it’s cool to be around others and to hang out with friends or to do stuff in groups, it’s also really important to get to know yourself and to be comfortable in your own skin. You are the one person that you can never escape from, so learn how to be ok with you.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my friends and I love my family even more (and I’m excited for the day that I will one day meet the man that I will marry), but I’m just as happy with others as I am alone.
The reason why I’m writing this though is because I hear so many people saying that they’re in this relationship or doing that because they don’t want to be alone, and it honestly makes me a little sad.
Why sell yourself short or settle for something because it’s all that you feel you can get at the moment? Why not just work on making yourself a better person, learning what your likes and dislikes are (or what your strengths and maybe areas that you need to improve on are) before bringing someone else into the picture? Why aren’t you comfortable being by yourself?
I don’t mean to sound like I’m preaching; I’m not. I’m just really passionate about people and I truly believe that if people knew who they were and what they possess, what qualities and characteristics they have that make them strictly unique, then they wouldn’t feel inadequate or the need to be validated by other people. (Or feel the need to always be around someone else).
Love who you are, be ok with being by yourself, and just live your life to the fullest. Whether you’re surrounded by crowds of people or if you’re all alone in your room curled up reading a good book (or painting your nails or whatever), enjoy life.
