Feeling Comfortable Spending Time Alone
Feeling comfortable being alone is something I had grow to love. This doesn’t even necessarily mean “alone and single”. I am in a relationship and I still love moments when I am alone. I love being able to bathe in my own thoughts and feelings without anyone else obstructing my views. With that being said, I do appreciate feedback much of the time however, being able to spend time alone and enjoy it is healthy.
I truly think it is important for everyone to feel some comfort when they find themselves alone. I laugh to myself sometimes when I am in a public space by myself without a friend, boyfriend or family member and I have sudden urge to play on my phone. It really is ridiculous to constantly need attention or engagement. However, fighting the urge for constant interaction can be difficult. Here are some things I have found have helped me enjoy the moments in between when I am alone.
If you are watching this video and you are alone, I want to thank you for taking some of that alone-time to hangout with me.
