A friend posted this video on her Facebook page and I really liked it. Being alone is so hard – hard when you’re young and trying to figure out the whole relationship thing, hard when you’ve just been dumped because you haven’t quite figured out the whole relationship thing, hard when you want a family, aware of the biological clock but with no one on the horizon, and hard when, tragically, a loved one unexpectedly dies.
We spend a lot of time trying hard not to be alone, perhaps not to feel the pain of being alone. Tanya Davis turns this logic on its head. She suggests that the path away from the pain of being alone – is by embracing our aloneness. And when we learn to be comfortable with ourselves, then the world can begin to open up to us.
You are, after all, the most important person for you to be in relationship with.
