Afraid of Being ALONE? Don’t Be!

I’m an extremely realistic person when it comes to life. As a child I thought that life would follow the order in which I saw things on t.v. which are called fairy tales. F*ck those fairy tales. That’s what makes people so confused sometimes when things don’t work out the way “they should” or let me say the way life is portrayed on t.v. and soap operas.

I know it would be great to live your life with someone to share your best moments lived but we all know that this crap doesn’t happen like we’d like. What if you never meet that person? What if you just keep meeting people who show you a good time but never take it to the next level? If this is the case or not, just know that you should not be afraid of being alone.  No one will truly know how you feel or your thought process regardless if you’ve known them for years. You are safest with yourself, only you can make yourself happy and the same way we are born: alone – it’s the same way we will die: alone.

I think we should learn to appreciate the moment, day by day and understand that even if we are married, engaged, have a girl/boy friend, lover, etc. that this can be taken from us at any moment. So, I say don’t be afraid to BE ALONE – nothing lasts forever.

  1. Great post Ms.Verbal Loved your message!

    People are so use to being dependent on others that when they are alone they do not know how to handle themselves which leads to problems of depression and anxiety. Life would be much simpler if individuals would just learn to be comfortable with themselves and understand that he/she is their own biggest strength and weakness. No one knows you more than you know yourself. Most people never have the opportunity to find themselves because they are NEVER alone, and never become truly independent. We should all seek to understand ourselves before we attempt to understand others or expect them understand us.


  2. I tend to feel like I have more anxiety when I’m with another person – it is so hard to have all my emotions and then have to deal with whatever someone else is doing! I seem to be the one unable to commit because of it not out of fear, but out of love for myself; not willing to compromise my own happiness.
    DelicateStrength said it all really well.

  3. Being single and being alone are two different subjects. Fear of being alone is the issue, when one is content being single, they are never alone.
