I noticed when interacting with a few of my friends that they are absolutely terrified of being alone, it is something they don’t comprehend because that’s not something you choose, being alone, and they probably don’t even know it themselves. Most people think about it as something wrong, they would assume someone who goes to see a show on their own is probably in love with themselves, or maybe they have social issues? Either way, pathetic.
When people know they are going to be alone for a period of time they can become anxious and pushy, they need to see you, they need to see someone, they need to do something, they need to fill the void. There needs to be a constant sense of validation within everything they do and say.
In my life i’ve had a strange relationship with loneliness and by this point, to me being alone has become a kind of craving after being surrounded by people. Being alone means to be powerful and peaceful, as long as the world and everything with it around you is moving. When you are alone you get a chance on getting to know yourself and observe your climate.
What other people do or say mostly influence your actions and opinions, whether you want it or not, by not having those your experiences are more “pure” and to me that is the beautiful thing about being alone. You’re being honest with yourself and that’s very important
