How often do we find ourselves ‘alone’? So alone the big nameless and faceless crowds of people just rush right past us without even throwing a single glance towards us. We could so easily disappear amongst the masses and more often than not we do.
Even being a part of the crowd, one of the white sheep in the big herd, it might seem all so continuous and homogeneous, but don’t we all get the sense of loneliness, even if we are surrounded by people and things? Don’t we all sometimes want to stop in the middle of the street and turn around to pave our own path, one that hasn’t got our and everyone else’s footprints all over it yet.
Being alone is the time for you to recharge, regain your strength and your will to keep on going in life. Without me-time, you’ll notice you’ll slowly start losing parts of yourself, the little cogs within you that keep you alive mentally and physically.
Make sure your alone time is of good quality because we’re stuck with ourselves for the rest of our life, regardless who comes in and out of it and therefore being kind to ourselves is a must. Treat yourself like a dear friend of yours, one that needs attention and love.
I’m one of those people who can happily spend majority of time by themselves, whether it is healthy or not I cannot say, but it’s something I want my Alone project to reflect. It is okay to be on your own, it is perfectly fine to enjoy your space and it certainly is alright to lose the need for justifying your need for peace and quiet all by yourself.
