Many people feel that being alone is isolating and restrictive. I say it can be nurturing and liberating.
Often, we manage our lives, our behavior, even the expectations we set for our future based on what other people want or expect for us. Their ever-judgmental presence lurks as a foreboding shadow over our thoughts. Over our decisions. Our actions. Even, sometimes our dreams.
Without the imposition of other tainted opinion, we can reflect on our actions. Observe ourselves from a different perspective. Look back in a way that allows us to see ourselves in a clearer context. And determine if our past supports the future we envision.
Whether your solo situation is newly imposed, voluntarily selected or a self-affirming decision, the aloneness allows a freedom that others do not enjoy. We can navigate without the mask required when in the company of those who feel they ‘know best’ what is best for us.
Our aloneness allows us to see ourselves as we desire to be. Allows us to form affirming thoughts and supportive routines as a foundation for the life we strive to build: SaSS-Y!
