The author says that at times ‘being alone’ can put things into perspective and open new paths for you.

They say,“Those who fly solo have the strongest wings”. Loneliness doesn’t mean being alone, it means feeling lonely despite having millions of people around.

We may not realize how social humans are, until depression hits us. But, then there’s my tribe, ‘people who like being alone’ and it has a power that very few can handle. I love being alone, always did ,from my younger years. I grew up with working parents and had all the freedom and was alone most of the time until they would return from work. I used to think the worst thing in life would be ending up alone. But, now I understand how being by yourself opens a different world of opportunities for you. It is way better than ending up staying with someone who sucks the life out of you. You can do what you like and live the way you want.

There is a huge difference between being alone and feeling lonely. Ever since I was young, I have not been single for more than a month. But today I am single for almost a year and it feels fantastic. There are a million options, but would you jump into the same ditch you just got rescued from? If you have a kind and understanding spouse who shares all the responsibilities, then it’ll be worth giving away your freedom. But, I would rather be alone than in the midst of chaos and confusion.

I remember how I was in a relationship with my phone more than a human, because that human expected me to respond to his texts like a robot. So, I never left my phone alone, so much so that I would even take it to the restroom like I was the president and there would be a war if i missed a text or a call. Gladly, gone are those days and its a relief when I don’t have to care about where my phone is. I think I will be happy without a human, phone or too many expectations. And no I never feel lonely, because I have ‘me’.

Some steps in life have to be taken alone, it gives you a chance to learn where you want to go and what you need to do with your alone happy self. So, kill the part of you that makes you think that you cannot survive without someone else. And get going!
