How to be alone
I found this video on YouTube the other day, and it struck a chord. As an introvert who tends to be very social, it's nice to find others who understand the joys of being in a crowd and being alone. I can't say that I love being alone all the time, much like being with others for long drives me crazy, but this woman hits the nail on the head.
I've never gone out to a movie, dinner, or dancing by myself like she suggests, but now I'm thinking about it. If I want to see a movie when no one is available, why can't I just go see it? If I want to try a restaurant when no one is around, why can't I go? Maybe subconsciously I still have that fear of being lonely, or worse, looking lonely to others.
Have you ever taken yourself out to dinner or a movie?
