One of the very first things I learned when I moved out of my parents house was that you need to learn how to be comfortable being alone/by yourself.. 🙏🏻 .
some people are never alone, and have a vast network of friends and family behind them.. or what about people that never go anywhere without their boyfriend/girlfriend? Any relationship can change, whether it's a friends, family or an intimate relationship.. things change. But the only person you'll always be with 24/7, is yourself.. so in order to always have a safety net, to always feel comfortable... you need to learn how to just be by yourself.. 🧘🏻♀️ .
I never rely on anyone's company and feel very comfortable being alone, but as of late I really have been feeling like I need more people around me to talk to. Now I try to keep a perfect balance, I love spending time with people and make conversation, but I still enjoy being alone, listening to my favorite songs, read a book, get creative by drawing or painting, Long walks... The plus side of being alone is it's peaceful and you can collect your thoughts. Free your mind so to speak.. but when you do it too much you get the urge to talk to people, and that's the same the other way around. Find balance!☯️ Like ANYTHING else in life. But most importantly; BE COMFORTABLE BEING ALONE! it will get you more comfortable with yourself too.✌🏻 . 📸 Another lovely shot by @marijke.elise
