Learn to be alone, without being lonely.
I’ve said that numerous times in various blogs I’ve written. I’ve texted friends the same notion when they were going through “it,” included the line in emails, and even thought it outloud to myself.
But what I forgot to say was, it’s OK to be lonely.
How else are you supposed to feel when it’s as if you’re the last single girl on Earth, and you get the couch during weekends with the boys ‘cuz their wife and kids get first dibs on the bedrooms? Am I supposed to believe that successful, beautiful, outgoing people are robots with the ability to turn on and off their emotions with a flick of a switch? You may fool them. But you don’t fool me, I SEE YOU.
Because we all have wants, and needs. Most of the time, it’s not even about the sex. Sometimes it’s about driving to someone’s house you vowed you’d never see again. Not even realizing what you’re doing until you’re sitting in your car in their driveway, just so they can wrap their arms around you, and for the night you can at least pretend there’s something there or they’re someone else.
Loneliness is powerful ain’t it?
