“In solitude the mind gains strength and learns to lean upon itself” — Laurence Sterne
2018 you’ve been a trip thus far.
This year has provided more than a few profound self-realization. I came face to face with my fears and pushed onward past my comfort zone plenty of times.
I’d say the most common feeling during this introspective year has been:
Even though I’m surrounded by loved ones, the emotions and phases that accompany them can’t be put into words. In this aloneness, I realize that being alone is not “bad.”
It provides the solitude necessary to build companionship with self.
These moments of growth are the epitome of self-love and self-acceptance.
After fear subsided I took note that the only reason I was scared was that I didn’t know myself, I didn’t know what to expect and instead clung to distractions.
If your feeling alone and the only sense of companionship you receive comes from momentary enlightenment when finding articles or quotes that resemble the emotions within.
Just know, taking the time to know who you will be the most impactful time of your life.
