I recently watching this video and it got me thinking about being alone.
While I’m in a relationship and have my three children, I truly enjoy and thrive when I am alone.
Alone to sit with my thoughts.
Alone to just be myself.
I feel my most authentic self when I am alone.
It’s a chance for me to recharge and reset my mind.
It may not seem it [because I blog and teach fitness classes], I am the biggest introvert.
We live in a society where we are typically told we are “weird” if we enjoy being alone. I’ve even been called boring because I chose to spend time by myself either reading or going for walks.
With my current partner, I’m truly thankful that he gives me the space to be myself. I don’t feel “weird” when I want alone time. I don’t feel “weird” if I tell him if I just need to be by myself to “reset.”
While he is not this way, he respects my needs.
In my previous relationship, I was shunned whenever I wanted to spend time alone. That I wasn’t truly in love with my partner or cared. But that isn’t true at all. This is just something I need to thrive.
Moments to just be still.
Alone.One day at a time, of course.
