Nylon Magazine writer, Meghan Nesmith, wrote an inspiring article about the art of aloneness.
If you read the article here you can get a brief summary.
In the article, she makes great points about the difference between aloneness and loneliness. Many times people confuse the two. Aloneness is the ability to enjoy your own company without others. For example going to a movie or eating at a restaurant by yourself. Loneliness is wanting to connect with others but not being able to do so.
As we get Older we lose touch with our friends. They go off, get married and start a family. The art of Aloneness is enjoying your own company.
I personally enjoy my alone time. I also enjoy the company of others. I have been known to go out to brunch by myself. As I get older the less I seek out friends. I have been told that the older you get the more comfortable you are in your own skin. I hope that is true.
My advice is to go out there and try things by yourself. Wear headphones the first couple of times, if you're really nervous, After awhile you'll walk out by yourself, glowing and independent!
