On Loneliness

It's dark in my hotel room.as I sit here writing this. Everyone is asleep. And I feel like I'm alone. I love this feeling. One of the reasons why I wake up at 5am is so I can get this quiet time. It is only during this time that I am free to think clearly. I get the most done, I am able to process information better. And for an extrovert, a big one at that, I'm not sure this desire to be alone is the "norm". But I crave it. And I think we all do. The concept of loneliness is interesting. I think what we mean when we say we are lonely is that we are bored. And perhaps more apt, we are bored with ourselves. We are unhappy with who we are and we need someone to make us feel better. I think this is the case for most of us. It's not that we don't want to be alone, it's that our unhappiness makes us afraid of being alone. We don't want to come to grips with the sad realization that we suck. This is why being alone is important. You can be extroverted or introverted, it doesn't matter. When you learn to love yourself, you will see your happiness grow. You will never be lonely again. Practice being alone. Take an hour completely to yourself. Have a conversation with your soul. Love you. And remember that you need to love yourself first before you can love anyone else. Here's to the loners. #happiness #mindset #selflove
