No one wants to be alone, right?
Least that’s what we feel like, especially when a meaningful relationship or someone dear to us leaves us. We feel like we can’t face the world alone and suddenly the long road of life seems as though volcanoes and Mt. Everest was placed at the same time in front of us like a series of unfortunate events.
But then what about when we get annoyed by people being all over our private space? I’m talking about those moments when you feel like you are being smothered by someone and you just want to be left alone for just a few minutes or hours. Or when you get those little pesky texts “what are you doing” or “how are you” not even five minutes after a previous message that was unanswered because you missed it or was busy with something else. So then why do we feel these bi-polar emotions of wanting to be alone and not again at the same time?
Because we like being alone on some days. Because putting some distance makes us appreciate that person more, at the same time making us appreciate our alone time just as much. I believe women have mastered this, hence why men feel like they don’t understand us. Ya’ll just behind. I grew up alone, being an only child and constantly in and out of relationships, I’ve learned to be comfortable with being alone, I appreciate my quiet days, perhaps that explains why I can’t see myself with a child, can you imagine all those sleepless nights filled with baby cries and tantrums? Let’s get back on subject, being alone isn’t how we want to live out our days, but it doesn’t, by any means, render having “alone time” unnecessary or something that only grouchy people do.
