Being alone has been given a bad reputation. People say it’s negative, that it’s not a good thing to do. And if you spend time alone, they say you are a loner.
I don’t see it like that. For me, it is a liberating feeling where you can recharge, reflect, get to know yourself, accept yourself and tell yourself that you are good enough.
So why do a lot of us feel afraid of being alone?
From the moment you are born, your parents have already made plans for you: what school you are going to go to, who you are going to meet and where you are going to go on holiday.
We spend the majority of our lives rushing around.
So, the little calm time that we get, many of us feel like we are stranger to ourselves because we have not built that intimate relationship with ourselves.
The more you reconnect back to yourself, the more energy you will have for other people. More energy for yourself helps you appreciate other people more. More energy for yourself helps you see the world from a wider perspective.
There is a difference between being alone and being isolated.
Being alone is where you reconnect back to the truth of who you are. Being isolated is where you are separate from the truth of who you are. Many people may be around a lot of people but isolated because they are separate from them.
Now it’s a wonderful time to get in touch with your emotions. The emotions are your inner guidance system.
Getting in touch with your emotions helps you to let go, it helps you to surrender to the greater part of yourself and it helps you stop absorbing a lot of toxic energy from the outside world.
Don’t be afraid of being alone. There are lot worst things.
