REAL TALK: Raise your hand if you’ve ever dated someone, stayed friends with someone, or stayed in a community that wasn’t aligned just because you were scared of being on your own.
I get it… sometimes the thought of being alone is honestly, petrifying. But truthfully, there are worse things than being alone on a Friday night or not having a person to call your own.
Losing sight of yourself.
Making yourself small, sick, and unhappy.
Being less of who you are to fit into spaces you don’t enjoy.
When you start saying no to the people and places that don’t feel aligned, letting go of hands and leaving longstanding relationships… there’s absolutely a pocket of isolation. But that pocket will soon be filled with people who truly see you, get you, love you, and consider you. If you’re willing to see it through. To be patient. To spend that time becoming more of who you are and who you want to be.
