How To Be Alone

Hi. Cellophane here.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed that some people can’t bear to be alone. They fill their days with as many social events and work projects to avoid being by themselves. It’s like they can’t stand the silence and their own thoughts. They have to be entertained and stimulated at all times.

I love being alone. Then again, I’m an introvert. I enjoy my alone time because it gives me time to think, reflect, and contemplate my life. I’m only 26 years old, but sometimes I feel twice that age.

It’s this way of thinking that has led me to believe that you have to know how to be alone in order to learn to love yourself.

I don’t completely feel okay in my own skin yet. I don’t know if I ever will.

Maybe one day I’ll finally be at peace with myself.

Spending time by myself seems like a good way to start.

What about you?
